Gov. Sanford slipped out of town again

COLUMBIA — South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford is back in the office after again taking a vacation without telling Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer where he was.

Gubernatorial spokesman Ben Fox would not say this morning where the governor was, except to say he's been off.

On June 24, 2009, Sanford returned from vacation to say he had been in Argentina visiting a woman he later told The Associated Press was his "soulmate." Sanford and his wife, Jenny, divorced in March.

Fox says Sanford spent most of the Father's Day weekend with his four sons and just took yesterday off.

Sanford's office had said last year the governor was hiking the Appalachian Trail.

Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer said Monday no one told him where the governor was. Fox says the office doesn't do that because Sanford remains in contact with staff.

I can't wait to read the exciting article where Sanford polishes his shoes. It's pretty clear why even CNN dropped the AP.

He should be free to go on

He should be free to go on vacation wherever he wants... however, he should at least tell the Lt. Gov where he's going- even if they don't make it known to the public

I agree with the others. This was a pointless article. Let me know when he gets some Just For Men... I'm sure it'll be breaking news.

See what happens when citizens are NOT held accountable for policy violations - he is above the law! The proof is that NOTHING was done when he misused gov't funds and "duped" his security. This demonstrates complete corruption.

Maybe Sanford took a day off to get away from that whiny baby Andre Bauer. I would.
