Last Thursday, after the legislative session ended, Sanford left the governor’s mansion, driving off in a black Suburban SUV. He did not take his security detail. He did not tell his lieutenant governor where he was going. He told his aides only that he needed to recharge his batteries. Don’t call me, he told the staff, explaining that he planned to turn off his cellphone, I’ll call you. As for his wife, First Lady Jenny Sanford left for their vacation home where she spent the Father’s Day weekend with their four sons.
