GEORGIA GOVERNOR’S DISAPPEARANCE NOT CAUSED BY “ARGENTINIAN LOVER”
|| By FITSNEWS || Georgia governor Nathan Deal has gone missing … and his staff is refusing to say where he is.
“I cannot discuss that,” Deal’s communications director told Politico after The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported on Deal’s unexplained absence, which it referred to as being guarded like a “state secret.”
Sound familiar? These are precisely the sort of headlines that preceded former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford‘s unraveling in 2009 after he went missing – and then lied about where he was in an effort to conceal an extramarital affair. Sanford told his staffers he was hiking the Appalachian Trail when media began inquiring as to his whereabouts – only to get caught by a reporter disembarking a plane from Buenos Aires.
In fact one of Deal’s press hacks invoked the “Lov Guv’s” South American fling with Latin lover Maria Belen Chapur in an attempt to assure Georgia voters their leader was away for legitimate reasons.
“He’s on official business,” the spokesman said. “There’s no Argentinian lover involved.”
The irony? Deal is traveling overseas for “economic development” reasons … meaning his trip is likely going to be far costlier for Georgia taxpayers than if he were off enjoying the company of a Latin paramour.
Sanford was elected to the U.S. House in 2013 despite his scandal … although he’s had a rough couple of weeks.
