I guess we should take this as another sign that South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford won't be leaving quietly. From the Greenville News:
COLUMBIA -- After weeks of answering questions about his travel in planes, Gov. Mark Sanford is asking the state's three major research universities for their records on use of public and private aircraft.
Swati Patel, Sanford's chief legal counsel, sent a letter to the Medical University of South Carolina, the University of South Carolina and Clemson University asking for records of the school's use of planes, whether owned or rented by them, including dates, costs, reasons for the flights and who was on them.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
