Bizarre Report: South Carolina Governor Missing from Thurs. to Monday Afternoon

Where is Governor Mark Sanford?

Real Clear Politics is reporting that no one, including his wife, knows where the Governor is.

Governor Sanford, please phone home.

Breaking news… Governor Sanford has been in contact with his office and is fine, even though he had left without his security detail and had turned off his phones.

From The State

The governor’s office issued a statement Monday afternoon: “Gov. Sanford is taking some time away from the office this week to recharge after the stimulus battle and the legislative session, and to work on a couple of projects that have fallen by the wayside. We are not going to discuss the specifics of his travel arrangements or his security arrangements.”

South Carolinian Critics have pointed out that in the event of an emergency, the Governor should never be entirely out of touch.  His family probably feels the same way.

Associated Press now has a report on the story.   Three days apart from capital and family, including Father’s Day.  This is odd. I like Sanford very much, but this conduct is nothing short of strange.
