Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) has departed her state for an undisclosed location as part of a secretive week-long work trip, the Associated Press reported on Monday.
Are we sure she isn't related to Donald Trump?
On Tuesday, her office confirmed that she'd visited Army combat medic Mason Steill at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. the day before, but declined to give any further details about her whereabouts.
Brewer left Arizona on Sunday, missing an event to certify election ballots. Secretary of State Ken Bennett, who is serving as acting governor in her absence as mandated by the Arizona Constitution, filled in for Brewer at the proceeding after being told last week that she wouldn't be there to fulfill her duty. She's expected to return to the state on Saturday.
Her mysterious disappearance and decision to neglect to attend the certification of the recent elections quickly drew a rebuke from Arizona Democrats.
