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?
