I guess we don’t have to feel bad about making fun of Mark Sanford after all:
But Sanford spokesman Joel Sawyer issued a statement late Monday night saying that the governor was “hiking along the Appalachian Trail,” the first word on Sanford’s location since he was seen departing the state capital on Thursday.
“I apologize for taking so long to send this update, and was waiting to see if a more definitive idea of what part of the trail he was on before we did so,” Sawyer said in the statement.
Update. JMM suggests there may still be cause for concern. (I didn’t know the trail was quite so remote in places.) Let’s hope for the best.
