Governor Jan Brewer – MIA

Filed in National by on December 4, 2012

This seems odd.

PHOENIX (AP) — Gov. Jan Brewer has taken a nearly week-long out-of-state work trip that was shrouded in secrecy Monday as she skipped an event to certify election ballots and her spokesman refused to disclose her location.

Brewer spokesman Matthew Benson said in a brief email to The Associated Press that Brewer was unavailable to participate in the general election canvass Monday morning because she was out of the state on official business.

“That is all I can disclose at this time,” Benson added.

He later reiterated that during a brief phone interview during which he said he could not respond to several questions about Brewer’s whereabouts.

I would think that the people of Arizona have a right to know where their Governor is and what official business has taken her out of state.  Can anyone come up with a legitimate reason for all the secrecy?

    Hiking the Appalachian Trail?

    Update: I am apparently about the four millionth person to make that joke. Well, it did come to mind. Speculation on dKos includes rehab and plastic surgery.

    Well. No one has seen Rep, Jesse Jackson, Jr. since he resigned, either, right? Could be connected!

    wouldnt THAT be a fun scandal!? Frau Brewer involved with a….. YOU KNOW ….democrat.

    Isn’t Arizona better off with her out of state?

    Well, Gov. Minner once took a work trip to Canada in a private plane and didn’t tell anyone about it. So there is some precedent.

    Perhaps she has a secret meeting with Fisker. Or in Mexico negotiating a treaty on immigration.

    Apparently I’m the four millionth and first person to make that joke.

    She’s getting cosmetic surgery. All of the “spare” skin will be stuck into her right index finger so she won’t still resemble the Wicked Witch of the West!

  8. Jason330 says:

    What if Jan Brewer and Scott Walker had sex and got pregnant and they named the baby Scott Brewer-Walker and that baby grew and was a necrophiliac and had sex with the corpse of Grover Norquist?

    that would be gross.

  9. Delaware Dem says:

    Some one said on MSNBC’s Martin Bashir show yesterday that she is considering a presidential run in 2016. How hilarious.

    Maybe the aliens called her home.

  10. Jason330 says:

    My scenario is far more plausible.

    Unnamed source says Betty Ford…

  12. Joanne Christian says:

    Wow. Passages in Malibu looks more fun. Betty Ford is so passe’. Republican discount rate?

    Seriously, whatever it is, I wish the best for her state or her personally–whichever it is.

  13. Liberal Elite says:

    Maybe she was summoned by the head of the GOP….

    …Roger Ailes.
