Governor Mark Sanford's mysterious absence has been explained.
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford says he's been having an affair and will resign as head of the Republican Governor's Association.
This is a crying shame. Governor Sanford had much to offer to his country, especially at a time when the federal government seems to have lost its wits in regards to fiscal sanity. It is also a shame because it means we may have to endure yet another Mitt Romney candidacy as fiscal conservatives look for a home on 2012. On the positive side, it is better we find this out now than a year or two from now.
