Politics South Carolina style

It was an odd few hours in South Carolina on Monday when nobody could figure out where the state’s governor was. Gov. Mark Sanford disappeared last Thursday. But TheState.com reports his cellphone signal was picked up in Atlanta.

Adding weirdness to the situation was this reaction from the governor’s wife, as reported by the newspaper.


First lady Jenny Sanford told The Associated Press earlier Monday her husband has been gone for several days and she did not know where.

Wait for it.


She said she was not concerned.

    Considering that he’s a potential presidential candidate (among several dozen others), my guess is that he was meeting with someone or some organization that he really didn’t want everyone else to know about. Nothing improper, mind you, but perhaps a large fundraiser or political kingmaker.
