NRO's Andrew Johnson highlights the goof:

Sanford walked into the Speaker’s Lobby outside the House chamber in a sweaty T-shirt, gym shorts, and a pair of sneakers upon hearing that votes on the Department of Defense appropriations bill had been moved up an hour, according to Roll Call.

Sanford nixed Florida congressman Trey Radel’s suggestion to pull his shorts lower so that they would look more like pants.
