Yet another update (see below).
This case just gets more and more bizarre by the day. Earlier this week, staffers for South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, who has been missing in action since late last week, insisted that he was happily hiking in the Appalachian Trail. Today, however, Sanford has returned to the Palmetto State, and he has a very different story. Sanford says that he was not hiking since last Thursday, but that he was enjoying a week-long hiatus in Argentina -- alone. High drama -- and deceit, the usual combination. Stay tuned.
Yet Another Major Update: Yup -- It was an affair.
