Skip to comments.Sanford, lover carried on a romantic e-mail exchange
Posted on 06/24/2009 3:13:33 PM PDT by pissant
South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford carried on a lively e-mail exchange with his lover in Buenos Aires, praising her "gentle kisses," her tan lines and the "curve of your hips," according to copies of the e-mails given to McClatchy's The State newspaper.
The newspaper posted excerpts on its Web site, after removing the woman's full name and other personal details, including her street address, e-mail address and children's names.
In the e-mails, Sanford recounted his schedule, including a meeting with Sen. John McCain, then the Republican nominee for president. In that e-mail, Sanford told his lover, who The State identified only as "Maria," that the visit had sparked discussion of Sanford as a possible vice presidential candidate.
He also hinted at the emotional struggle his sexual relationship with the woman was causing him. "This is ground I have never certainly never covered before - so if you have pearls of wisdom on how we figure all this out please let me know," Sanford wrote. "In the meantime please sleep soundly knowing that despite the best efforts of my head my heart cries out for you, your voice, your body, the touch of your lips, the touch of your finger tips and an even deeper connection to your soul."

Sanford should just resign and save everyone the trouble.
Does anyone remember the good old days when you were a sleazebag you slunk away in shame and stayed away from decent people?
This is why.
Do we need to know every sleazy detail of this jerk and his wife’s intimate life?
Just GO AWAY
“”In the meantime please sleep soundly knowing that despite the best efforts of my head my heart cries out for you, your voice, your body, the touch of your lips, the touch of your finger tips and an even deeper connection to your soul.”
Since his career is in the toilet, he can now become a romance novelist.....
Actually his wife should kick his ass and save everyone else the trouble.
"You Big Dummy!"
He needs to move to Argentina for the next ten years.
Harlequin Romance has found a new writer.
His poor wife. He’d have been kinder to cut her heart out with a dull knife.
Good one. I concur.
Rabs, I think your guy has given up on seeking the presidency.
“Since his career is in the toilet, he can now become a romance novelist.....”
What about Prince of Wales...or is that Wails?
So where are the people who said Sanford was attacked by a wild seductress? It seems he was a big instigator of this sordid affair.
I think it's a safe bet that we won't get this kind of surprise from Sarah Palin. I wonder what Huckabee's got in store for us.
Do you really think the paper only got access to these emails after the story broke?
Or have they been holding them, waiting until Mr. Sanford did his next disappearing act.
In any case, Sanford is most definitely not presidential material.
What a sleazebag.
He portrays himself as the victim.
Well, that was more information than I wanted to know about Sanford’s love affair. At least it was with a woman.
Women cause guys to do some wacky things...
(his judgement had problems last year)
Yes, Even Sanford

Youve got to wonder if theres any room for climate sanity left in governance and politics if a man recognized as one of the most conservative governors in America has bought into global warming alarmism. Thats what has happened with Gov. Mark Sanford in South Carolina, who last year created the Climate, Energy, and Commerce Advisory Committee to gin up some plans (extracted from the ideas of the Center for Climate Strategies) to cut down on carbon emissions in the state. You might think that Sanford did so as a political nod to the environmentalists in his state, but his executive order (PDF) that created CECAC reflected a passionate tone:
For the last twenty years of my life, I have seen the ever-so-gradual effects of rising ocean levels at our farm in Beaufort County. In some cases, its been watching pine trees die in that fragile zone between uplands and salt marsh; in other cases its meant finding roots in areas that would never grow a tree, given the current salt water levels. While I understand very clearly the debate on whether or not these events come as a result of mans activity or just the effects of nature taking its course - Ive had other personal experiences that strongly suggest to me that man is having an impact on the environment. The last time I was in Beijing on a trade trip, we happened to be there on a bad smog day. When I went outside I could see no more than a quarter of a mile and my eyes watered.

No, MEN cause themselves to do whacky things.
Sanford conducted a “World Wind” presidential campaign.
Sounds like Miss Argentine was in a serious relationship too. This ain’t the exclusive territory of men.
Just another jerk letting his one-eyed trouser worm do his thinking for him. Why people risk losing everything over a simple piece of a$$ is beyond me.
What a fool....
“Stay away from her! Dont go near the door of her house! If you do, you will lose your honor and will lose to merciless people all you have achieved. Strangers will consume your wealth, and someone else will enjoy the fruit of your labor. In the end you will groan in anguish when disease consumes your body. You will say, ‘How I hated discipline! If only I had not ignored all the warnings! Oh, why didnt I listen to my teachers? Why didnt I pay attention to my instructors? I have come to the brink of utter ruin, and now I must face public disgrace.’ Proverbs 5
but if he were a Dem, it would not be as big of an issue. :-)
You mean like the media did not make a big deal out of Spitzer?

Any pics of the mistress yet? I’m picturing her as looking like Salma Hayek. For her it is worth destroying your family and career.
Sanford needs to resign. If he can’t be faithful to his wife...he shouldn’t be governor of any state.
Maybe we should see what his mistress looks like. Argentinian (and Uruguayan) women are generally quite attractive.
I tire of the “woman made me do it” asinine comments. If you can’t control your !@$#@ that’s your problem.
Anyone this stupid needs to be run out of office.
I was wondering when the “guilty-not guilty” mindset from the child-molestor threads would spread over here.
She has to be blind then, because he's no looker.
Just about every guy out there has the same thought as me. What does she look like? We just gotta KNOW!!!
He made up for it with a dull personality.
And leave his 4 kids with out a mother.
Well , no men's Obsession over women, will cause us to do wacky things.
I can provide examples if required. Mine in fact.
He deserves everything he’s getting.
Except having his emails posted to the media. That is more tawdry than the emails themselves, and criminal too, I would think.
I think it depends. If he wrote and sent them on government-owned computers, it may be law that the emails belong to the public. In that case, Sanford has no one to blame but himself. I don’t know that to be a fact, though — looks like there’s a lot more to this story that we’ll be hearing about for the next three weeks.
You could be right. But I’ve heard enough of this story already. The good news is there will be one less faction on FR pretending their guy is a better conservative than Hunter for 2012. LOL
I was gearing up to be one of those people. :) I still say Sanford’s record of fiscal conservatism blows Hunter’s out of the water...but no need to argue about that at this point. In my view that rat b@stard Sanford is reckless, irresponsible, and not fit for public office.
