More Sanford emails! Earlier this week, we took a look at a few of the emails sent to Gov. Mark Sanford‘s communications director, including ones sent by ABC’s Jake Tapper.
Yesterday, more of the over 500 emails have been released and Politico’s Michael Calderone has combed through some of them. Especially of note are the messages from Sunday show hosts offering forums of varying civility: CNN’s John King says he has “as sane a place as there is (I think!) in my crazy business.” ABC’s George Stephanopoulos offers a “civil forum to address this week’s events.” And NBC’s David Gregory claims Sanford will get “a fair shake from me.”
MSNBC’s David Shuster wins for sending the email that was probably the most direct:
My producers want us to do a short reader on this at $4:30pm. Have you seen the Governor since last thursday? Dis he have plans for the weekend? Anything unusual about this? The first lady doesn’t know where he is?
Let me know… I’d be happy to kill this story.
