S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford�s staff said this morning that the governor plans to return to his office Wednesday.

Late Monday, his office said the governor was hiking on the Appalachian Trail, ending four days during which staff and state officials said they had not heard from him.

In a statement, Joel Sawyer, Sanford's spokesman said, "Governor Sanford called to check in with his chief of staff this morning. It would be fair to say the governor was somewhat taken aback by all of the interest this trip has gotten.


"Given the circumstances and the attention this has garnered, the governor communicated to us that he plans on returning to the office tomorrow.

Neither Sanford�s office nor the State Law Enforcement Division, which provides security for governors, had been able to reach Sanford since he left the mansion Thursday in a black Suburban SUV assigned to his security detail, said state Sen. Jake Knotts , R-Lexington, and three others familiar with the situation, but who declined to be identified.

On Monday, Sawyer would not disclose where on the trail the governor was hiking, nor would he reveal whether Sanford was hiking alone.

Hmmmmm.... ***He says suspicously***

A man goes missing for four days in a "borrowed" vehicle, turns off his private and government cell phone so towers don't pick up location, then turns up, and calmly asks what's the fuss is about?

Me thinks there is a woman and a 'Love Shack' involved. I'm just sayin'... Hmm


...and over 'Fathers Day Weekend' too! shocked

Sanford�s last known location was near Atlanta late last week. A mobile telephone tower there picked up a signal from his phone, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Since then, the governor�s state and personal phones had been turned off, and Sanford had not responded to phone or text messages, a source said. Most mobile phones cannot be tracked if they are turned off.

First lady Jenny Sanford said Monday her husband has been gone for several days over Father�s Day weekend and she did not know where.

She said she was not concerned.

...of course The First Lady wasn't concerned, because her 'tennis instructor' was over. wink

It sounds like more of a mini-rehab thing ot mental breakdown-or maybe he had a meeting with Senators Ensign and Vitter... wink

I take at face value that he wanted to get away from all the crappola and went hiking on the Appalachian Trail. Absolutely nothing wrong with that. Of course, if he was going to do it, he should have transferred the gavel to the next in line. My sense is that is the source of the LTG's unhappiness: he didn't get to be Governor for the days of absence.

See? I tol'ja! I'm changing the parameters from a woman and a 'Love Shack' to simply an "amour" (...it's Argentina after all) and a 'love mattress.'

Beat me to it! I was going to post it in big red letters with a bow of respect to Rick for his great and very early insight!

Geez, what is it with politicians? Not that they do it, many men do and even lots of women. But that they think it will go unnoticed?????
