This afternoon, the South Carolina state Senate Democratic Leader John C. Land III released this interesting statement about Mark Sanford’s mysterious disappearance:

“We’ve been concerned by the Governor’s erratic behavior for some time. We’re praying for him and his family. I hope he is safe and that he contacts the First Lady and his family soon.”

So what exactly does he mean by erratic behavior? I just spoke on the phone with the state Senate Dem caucus director Phil Bailey.

“Number one, is actively rejecting our own stimulus dollars back here in South Carolina. Number two is – gosh, where to begin with Mark Sanford, it goes on,” said Bailey. “Suing the legislature to prevent our own tax dollars from coming back there to South Carolina to save teachers jobs, and prevent layoffs in law enforcement and prison officers. Sen. Land certainly believes that is erratic.”
