Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has left the state for “official business.” The trouble is, since her location is being kept a secret, no one—save for Brewer and her aides—knows her exact whereabouts.
The Huffington Post:
Brewer left Arizona on Sunday, missing an event to certify election ballots. Secretary of State Ken Bennett, who is serving as acting governor in her absence as mandated by the Arizona Constitution, filled in for Brewer at the proceeding after being told last week that she wouldn’t be there to fulfill her duty. She’s expected to return to the state on Saturday.
Her mysterious disappearance and decision to neglect to attend the certification of the recent elections quickly drew a rebuke from Arizona Democrats.
“It is disappointing that the state’s top elected official seems to have such little interest in the results of this election,” Democratic House Minority Leader Chad Campbell said, according to the Associated Press.
Gawker has a few satirical guesses as to Brewer’s whereabouts, including hiking “the Appalachian Trail” (shoutout to former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford) and “John McCafee’s hideout.”
