South Carolina’s Mark Sanford:

White House Budget Director Peter Orszag on Monday rejected South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford’s request to use up to $700 million of his state’s economic stimulus funds to pay down state government debt.

Orszag, responding to a letter Sanford sent to President Barack Obama last week, said the $787 billion stimulus bill Obama signed into law last month doesn’t allow governors to use money intended for other purposes to instead make debt payments.

Um, dude, it’s not a stimulus if you don’t spend it.
