    Default The plot thickens...

    Sources Question Governor's Story
    Gov. Mark Sanford Says He Disappeared To Go Hiking

    POSTED: 5:01 pm EDT June 23, 2009


    GREENVILLE, S.C. -- WYFF News 4 has received exclusive information from sources who say they have information about Gov. Mark Sanford's whereabouts during a mysterious absence over the past several days.

    Sanford's wife Jenny said she last talked to him on Thursday, and though she didn't know where he is, she said she wasn't concerned. She said he had left to have time to write.

    Joel Sawyer, communications director for the governor's office, then said the governor had been on the Appalachian Trail. Sawyer said staffers heard from Sanford on Tuesday morning and the governor plans to return Wednesday.

    Sawyer said the governor is surprised by all the attention.

    On Tuesday, sources told News 4's Nigel Robertson that a state vehicle is missing and was tracked down, not to the Appalachian Trail, but to the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta.

    Sources told Robertson that a federal agent spotted Sanford in the airport boarding a plane. Robertson was told that the governor was not accompanied by security detail.


    Sanford has been out of reach for more than four days, including Father's Day.

    Sawyer has emphasized that the governor was hiking on the Appalachian Trail and that it wasn't something the staff or Jenny Sanford were concerned about.

    But sources told WYFF News 4 that the federal agent who spotted Sanford saw him at the Atlanta airport, which is about 80 miles from the start of the trail.

    WYFF News 4 has not yet confirmed where the plane was going or how the governor got to the airport, but it is clear there are two very different stories.


    News 4 called the governor's office, and was told again by staffers that they stand by their original statement that the governor is hiking the Appalachian Trail. They did not want to comment on this story.

    So, he FLEW the Appalachian Trail? Have heard that a signal from his cell was picked up in Atlanta as well, just before it was turned off. A couple of screws loose.

    Plus, they had Naked Hiking Day this weekend in parts of the Appalachian Trail. The same Appalachian Trail that also got part of the stimulus cash that he didn't want.

    Like they said on Countdown if this is Sanford's cover story it makes you wonder how bad the real story is.

    His kids must be really, really obnoxious little shits and he pulled the whole "I'm outta here until you guys decide you can settle the fuck down" thing.

    I think he was probably on a covert mission and now his cover is blown.

    And allegedly a federal agent saw him catching a flight in Atlanta. So, he drove to Atlanta from S.C. and then flew back to S.C. go hiking?

    Sanford: Appalachians, Argentina, What's The Difference?

    By Zachary Roth - June 24, 2009, 8:50AM
    We didn't know the Appalachian Trail went all the way down to Buenos Aires!
    AWOL South Carolina guv Mark Sanford resurfaced at the Atlanta airport this morning, and told The State newspaper he hadn't been hiking the trail, as his staff said. Instead, he'd taken a jaunt down to Argentina...
    Sanford, in an exclusive interview with The State Media Company, said he decided at the last minute to go to the South American country to recharge after a difficult legislative session in which he battled with lawmakers over how to spend federal stimulus money. Sanford said he had considered hiking on the Appalachian Trail, an activity he said he has enjoyed since he was a high school student.
    "But I said 'no' I wanted to do something exotic," Sanford said "... It's a great city."
    ...
    Sanford said he was alone on the trip. He declined to give any additional details about what he did other than to say he drove along the coastline.
    As for that story about the Appalachian:

    When asked why his staff said he was on the Appalachian Trail, Sanford replied, "I don't know." Sanford later said "in fairness to his staff," he had told them he might go hiking on the Appalachian Trial.
    The paper reports that after the brief conversation, the guv was "escorted away by an aide."

    Someone needs an evaluation to see if he's fit to hold office. From his wife's comments (about getting away from the kids) sounds like he royally pissed her off too.
