I can only guess that after he refused federal stimulus funds, someone must have told South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford to “take a hike.” Because apparently walked out his front door, headed for the Appalachian Trail, and just kept walking. And you have to love the Sanford’s “family values” apparent from this story:
Sanford ditched his security detail on Thursday, missed Father’s Day weekend with his family, and didn’t show up at work Monday.
Neither his wife, nor the state’s lieutenant governor, nor police officials know where he is, South Carolina newspapers reported.
Because nothing says “I love you Dad” like some space.
