Mark Sanford won back his old seat in the U.S. House, edging Elizabeth Colbert Busch, the older sister of Stephen Colbert, in a South Carolina special election.
The state’s former two-term Republican governor overcame a series of missteps to earn about 54 percent of the vote in the conservative-leaning district.

Sanford, 53, famously resigned as chairman of the Republican Governors Association back in 2009 after being caught inMore >

According to The Wichita Eagle, one of the unnamed siblings went to the kitchen around 7 p.m. Friday to refuel the butane torches with which he planned to light the brothers’ bongs.
But when he emptied these large cans of fluid, butane leaked into the air and “as you might expect,” Sgt. Bruce Watts told the newspaper: “Ka-Boom.”

A bloody cricket bat is now the center of the investigation into the death of Oscar Pistorius’ model girlfriend, according to a newspaper in South Africa.
Police are unsure if Reeva Steenkamp used the bat in self-defense or if the Olympic sprinter used it, either by hitting her or breaking down a door.
