    After taking a long weekend to himself, South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford finally made contact with his office today, The State newspaper reports.

    As we posted a short time ago, the paper reported that neither his office nor the State Law Enforcement Division had been able to reach the governor since he left his mansion in a black sports utility vehicle on Thursday.

    Sanford’s office has contacted the governor and told the office of Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer that they now know where he is and that he is fine, according to the State.

    "The governor put in a lot of time during this last legislative session, and after the session winds down it's not uncommon for him to go out of pocket for a few days at a time to clear his head," Joel Sawyer, the communications director for Sanford's office, told CBS News. "Before leaving last week, he let staff know his whereabouts and that he'd be difficult to reach. Should any emergencies arise between the times in which he checks in, our staff would obviously be in contact with other state officials as the situation warrants before making any decisions."

    The governor's wife, Jenny Sanford, told the Associated Press Monday that she did not know where the governor was. Bauer also said he did not know where Sanford was -- but that he had not been put in charge in the governor's absence.

    Who the fuck leaves home for four days and doesn't tell his wife where he's going?

    Aren't there rumors that he's gay?



    ... Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    Prolly some mental issues but really, isn't that his business? Still, it would make me rethink my vote next election if I lived in South Carolina (shudder).

    He should have told his wife.

    Other than that, there's nothing wrong with what he did, assuming of course he didn't do anything wrong.
