[quote:Dread Pirate Roberts:MV84MjI0ODFfMTI3MzYzMDlfNEFBQzFCMUI=] this article raises good questions [b]Missing persons update: Gov. Sanford found (sort of)[/b] June 23, 2009 at 12:47 pm by Asher Smith in News Has South Carolina’s missing governor been located at last? One of his spokesmen has gone on the record, issuing a statement that Mark Sanford, who was completely out of touch for five days, was off “hiking along the Appalachian Trail” and will return to work tomorrow. Which, if true, doesn’t quite answer the question of why his wife said he needed time to do some writing, or why she didn’t know exactly where he was, or why he’d elect to “hike along the Appalachian Trail” on Father’s Day Weekend. It’s still a mystery as to why authorities revealed that they had tracked his cell phone to the Atlanta area — as it’s plain to see, the trail doesn’t exactly start in the metro region. And as Josh Marshall over at TPM points out, the fact that authorities were even worried enough to track down his phone in the first place raises questions. Here’s to wondering what “hiking the Appalachian Trail” will end up proving a euphemism for as this story unfolds. Now that it seems clear, at least, that the Palmetto State governor is safe, it doesn’t seem insensitive to hold out hope that it’s something hilarious. Or it might just be something as mundane as naked hiking — it turns out that Father’s Day was indeed Naked Hiking Day on the Appalachian Trail. http://blogs.creativeloafing.com/freshloaf/2009/06/23/missing-persons-update-sanford-found-sort-of/ ---------------------------- Also this: Why did Mark Sanford's staff essentially lie to the office of Lieutenant Governor Andre Bauer about whether it had been in contact with the governor? http://tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com/2009/06/why_did_sanford_staffer_mislead_lieutenant_guv.php [/quote]

Sanford Goes Missing
The whereabouts of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R) "have been unknown to state officials since Thursday, and some state leaders are questioning who is in charge of the executive office," reports the Columbia State.
"Neither the governor's office nor the State Law Enforcement Division has been able to reach Sanford, who left the mansion in a black SLED Suburban SUV."
"Sanford's last known whereabouts were near Atlanta, where a mobile telephone tower picked up a signal from his phone, authorities said."
According to WCBD-TV, the First Lady said he "has been gone for several days and she doesn't know where, but she is not concerned."
