Sanford Emails
Beaufort Gazette ^ | 6-24-09 | Beaufort Gazette

Posted on 06/24/2009 3:16:10 PM PDT by ArtyFO

Below are excerpts of e-mails, obtained by The State newspaper in December, between Gov. Mark Sanford and Maria, a woman in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The State has removed the woman’s full name and other personal details, including her address, e-mail address and children’s name.

Sanford’s office Wednesday did not dispute the authenticity of the emails.

McClatchy special correspondent Angeles Mase visited the 14-story apartment building in Buenos Aires Wednesday where the woman lives, according to the emails, which included her address. The woman at the address answered to the name in the emails and, at first, agreed to speak to a visitor, but she declined after the visitor identified herself as a reporter.

The doorman at the building, shown a photograph of Sanford, said he did not recognize him. According to the doorman, the woman has two sons, one a teenager of driving age and the other younger. The emails refer to the woman’s two sons.

From Gov. Sanford, Date: Thursday, July 10, 2008, 12:24 a.m.

“One, tomorrow leave at 5 a.m. for New York and meetings. Will think about you on its streets and wish I was going to be there later in the month when you are there. Tomorrow night back to Philadelphia for the start of the National Governor's Conference through the weekend. Back to Columbia for Tuesday and then on Wednesday, as I think I had told you, taking the family to China, Tibet, Nepal, India, Thailand and then back through Hong Kong on world wind tour. Few days home then to Bahamas for 5 days on a friend’s boat for the last break of the summer. The following weekend have been asked to spend it out in Aspen, Colorado with McCain - which has kicked up the whole VP talk all over again in the press back home ...

Two, mutual feelings .... You have a particular grace and calm that I adore. You have a level of sophistication that so fitting with your beauty. I could digress and say that you have the ability to give magnificent gentle kisses, or that I love your tan lines or that I love the curve of your hips, the erotic beauty of you holding yourself (or two magnificent parts of yourself) in the faded glow of the night’s light - but hey, that would be going into sexual details ...

Three and finally, while all the things above are all too true - at the same time we are in a hopelessly - or as you put it impossible - or how about combine and simply say hopelessly impossible situation of love. How in the world this lightening strike snuck up on us I am still not quite sure. As I have said to you before I certainly had a special feeling about you from the first time we met, but these feelings were contained and I genuinely enjoyed our special friendship and the comparing of all too many personal notes ...

Lastly I also suspect I feel a little vulnerable because 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... 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.”

--------------------

From Maria, Wednesday, July 9, 2008 8:14 p.m.

“As I told you I shouldn't have done this trip but I would have felt worst if I wouldn't have come because it was too over the date, he is a very nice guy, great heart ... but unfortunately I am not in love with him ... You are my love ... something hard to believe even for myself as it's also a kind of impossible love, not only because of distance but situation. Sometimes you don't choose things, they just happen... I can't redirect my feelings and I am very happy with mine towards you.”

--------------------

From Gov. Sanford, Tuesday, July 8, 1:42 a.m.

“Got back an hour ago to civilization and am now in Columbia after what was for me a glorious break from reality down at the farm. No phones ringing and tangible evidence of a day's labors. Though I have started every day by 6 this morning woke at 4:30, I guess since my body knew it was the last day, and I went out and ran the excavator with lights until the sun came up. To me, and I suspect no one else on earth, there is something wonderful about listening to country music playing in the cab, air conditioner running, the hum of a huge diesel engine in the back ground, the tranquillity that comes with being in a virtual wilderness of trees and marsh, the day breaking and vibrant pink coming alive in the morning clouds - and getting to build something with each scoop of dirt.”

Didn’t some South American DJ (male) carried out a funny joke on son of Fidel Castro, pretending to be socialist-loving hottie from Venezuela. They had hot IM and email conversations and DJ sent some fake pics.

Sanford does not seem to be too intelligent..I would not be surprised if the whole “hot email friend” was a scam or joke.

Nothing "snuck up" on you. It was not some "act of God" or nature or fate.

You were two scumbags who decided to break your vows to the people who committed themselves to you for life. You both sold out everybody who trusted you for a good orgasm.

Do we really need this on FR? Just asking.

My only question would be how did this paper get these emails? Perhaps Rahm and his thugs using the executive power to spy on their opponents?

Uh, you DID go there, Mark. What an incredible, selfish ass he is. I hope the Mrs. kicks him to the curb.

Tough life. Poor baby. No wonder he felt the need to escape his miserable existence by having a fling.

Let's all cry for Mark Sanford.

I saw this Governor on Fox about ten days ago being interviewed. He seemed shifty and very out of focus on the questions he was asked. While it wasn’t the first time I had seen him, I was the first time in the last four months.

I said to myself, this guy is off his meds, I couldn’t beleive that this is the fellow that everyone says is head and shoulders above Palin in qualifications.

I think I am going to keep on supporting the one that they love-to-hate. She just looks better and better.

Bingo!

The timing is suspicious as well. Right when zero’s numbers are sinking and his support for socialized healthcare and capnsteal are on the rocks. If this paper had this info for this long someone was directing them to hold the information for an ‘opportune’ moment.

Uh, if they knew in December, were they cooperating with the governor in suppressing them? Were they waiting for orders from Rahm as to the timing of their release? Were they waiting for the inevitable slip-up so they could pounce?

I'm there too.

My favorites are the "Republicans" who insist she isn't "electable" for some vague reason, like they make fun of her on SNL.

They're the same dopes who gave us the super-electable Maverick John McCain.

I agree. Regardless of how I feel about what the guy did, this is a huge invasion of his privacy. I’m appalled that the emails could be gotten and even moreso that they could be printed. And frankly, they don’t contain anything that important. We already know what he did. Sadly, his wife and kids will read these.

Many media outlets keep quiet about politician hankie pankie. They view such matters off limits. This story was more or less forced out of the open by Sanford’s Republican opponents in the state.

I am fed up with people in the public eye who do not take their marriage vows seriously. He was a nut and she was too for going after a married man. I might as well add Jon and Kate to this, too. It seems the whole world has gone wacky. Do not get married if you have no intentions of keeping your vows to each other.

There was probably some sort of blackmail/threat that if he didn’t admit the affair, the emails would go public. Wouldn’t surprise me if the emails/affair was used against him in the whole stimulus debate in SC.
