    Governor of South Carolina is Missing- Last Seen Thursday

    I hadn't heard anything about this until tonight on MSNBC. Mark Sanford, Gov. or South Carolina left the Executive Mansion last Thursday and no one has seen him since. The Lt. Gov. office said today they have heard from him but declined to say if he told them where he was. He missed Fathers Day with his family and did not show up for work Friday or this morning (Monday).

    Sounds like he's having a personal meltdown or something. I heard he had some professional defeats last week. Somthing about trying to use the stimulous to pay down debt and he was shot down. Hope he's ok.

    I was surprised I had not heard anything about it. I suppose his office was trying to keep in on the DL. It seems like kind of a big deal when the governor of a state goes missing.

    Update, he turned up ok. But, this is weird. It's one thing to disappear from work, but not from your family. Especially for Father's Day. I hope he works out whatever is going on.

    Republican Gov Sanford admits affair

    http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/06/...nor/index.html

    I tried this post in the political pavilian but it disappeared.?.....

    Let me try it here-the press clearly smelled the blood in the water when supposedly the governor was out hiking the Appalachians. Then the media found his car at an airport...then they caught him as he arrived at the airport and he told them he had been in Buenos Aires. His surprised wife was interviewed and her short statement was that she had not even spoken to her husband yet since he had been reported missing by the state police after borrowing a vehicle and not returning it when it was due...

    oops.

    This man...I won't even go into it. From his rejection of the stimulus money when so many educators were losing their jobs this year, to this mess. And I heard somewhere he will be running for president??

    Maybe not so much the president part now, huh? Even with the amount of sympathy people felt for John Edwards wife, his political career is dust.

    I guess I can't say I'm surprised. When they said he was on a hike, I thought ok. But when I heard last night that he was in South America,.............

    Bless his heart. I'm so glad not to live in the public eye. My prayers for him and his family.
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    What a cowardly, excuse making man! He runs off without letting anyone know where he is, then returns making excuse after excuse trying to justify his sorry behavior. I don't care what happens to him. All my feeligs are for his wife and family who must be hurt and embarrassed by his behavior. He has changed the life of everyone around him by his lack of self-control and integrity.
