Of course you never know the whole story behind politicos leaving one camp for another, but the timing on this one makes the reason seem obvious. From an email I just received, Gov. Mark Sanford’s spokeman Joel Sawyer announced:
Tomorrow will be my last day in the Governor’s Office, as I am leaving to begin my own communications consulting firm. It’s been a pleasure to work with and get to know so many of you, and I wanted to pass along my new contact information.
Don’t know why I received the message as the only time I ever had contact with Sawyer was about Sanford’s creation of a climate policy development commission. Never received any messaging from him before or since. I guess he wanted to let as many people as possible know he is LEA-VING!
Update 2:40 p.m.: Obviously I missed this announcement from a couple of weeks ago.
