Mark Sanford’s Vacation

Mark Sanford's Vacation

South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford won’t be at the National Governor’s Association meeting this weekend. He is hiking on the Appalachian Trail on a private vacation with wife Jenny trying to repair the damage his adultery has done to their relationship.

Wherever the couple is, the Governor probably travelled first class. Though Mr. Sanford made political headlines with his frugality, he flew first class on the public’s dime to visit his mistress in South America. 

In a move that surprises no one, Mr. Sanford’s battered communication director has resigned to hike the Appalachian Trail join the private sector. 

Good news for vacationers. You can probably hike the Appalachian Trail now without running into politicians.
