First reports had Sanford as “missing.” Next came word he was “hiking the Appalachian Trail,” followed by a wave of “the media is making too big a deal of this!”

Except he wasn’t by himself, he was with a “dear, dear friend” (a lady) with whom he has been having an extra-marital affair.
Here’s the latest (we hope) from South Carolina’s The State news.
Here’s his wife’s public response to the situation.
