COLUMBIA, SC (WBTW) - South Carolina drivers are getting a political eye-full as they make their daily commute along I-26 near Columbia.

The dating website AshleyMadison.com paid for a billboard with an image of former Governor and current 1st District Congressional candidate Mark Sanford that reads " Next Time Use AshleyMadison.com To Find Your Running Mate."

The sign takes a jab at Sanford's extra-marital affair with a woman from Argentina. 

AshleyMadison.com Founder & CEO Noel Biderman said "Mark Sanford's overcome a series of personal and professional hurdles to earn his place back in public service. While he recognizes the consequences of his actions, he maintains that his affair refined his life, but should not define it."

The dating website is designed for people already in relationships.

AshleyMadison.com plans to erect more billboards in the coming days, according to a press release.
