He's the governor of South Carolina, and actually went missing for a few days. He claimed that he was hiking on the Appalachian Trail, but this turned out to be a lie. He was actually visiting his secret lover in Argentina. Here's part of an email he sent to her:
You have a particular grace and calm that I adore. You have a level of sophistication that is so fitting with your beauty. I could digress and say that you have the ability to give magnificently gentle kisses, or that I love your tan lines or that I love the curves of your hips, the erotic beauty of you holding yourself (or two magnificent parts of yourself) in the faded glow of nights light but hey, that would be going into the sexual details we spoke of at the steakhouse at dinner and unlike you I would never do that!
