Where Is Gov. Mark Sanford?

More

Not on a particular question of policy... but, as in, where is he, physically? South Carolina's press corps is in a meltdown today because it appears as if the governor skedaddled out of town in a black SUV on Thursday and hasn't been seen since. His cell phone was traced to a tower in Atlanta. His wife says she's not worried. His staff says he's taking some R and R but won't say where. There appears to be some confusion as to whether Sanford's state police security detail knows -- or is looking for him. And why wouldn't he tell his wife? I've heard stories of his personal libertarianism, but that's a little much.
