A swirling political mystery has unfolded in Arizona this week as to the whereabouts of Governor Jan Brewer.

The staff of the popular Republican leader says that she is out of state on official business — but they are refusing to say where.

“That is all I can disclose at this time,’’ Matthew Benson, a spokesman for Brewer, told the Associated Press. He later repeated he couldn’t discuss her whereabouts in answer to further questions.

The question as to where Brewer is arose Monday when she was not available to take part in the certification of state election results.

Acting Governor Ken Bennett, Arizona’s Secretary of State, did the honors instead.

Bennett’s office told the Associated Press that Brewer — re-elected to a second term last month — had notified them she would be away from Sunday through next Saturday.

But she did not say where she would be, the office said.

Politicians usually strive to be as transparent as possible when it comes to their whereabouts, knowing that any hints of mystery usually spark a flurry of media interest with reporters doggedly trying to sniff out the facts.

The blond, 68-year-old governor previously served as Arizona’s Secretary of State.

She ascended to the Grand Canyon State’s top position in 2009 after then-Governor Janet Napolitano resigned after being chosen to serve as Secretary of Homeland Security.
