Exclusive: E-mails between Sanford, woman
The State Newspaper, Columvia, SC ^

Posted on 06/24/2009 5:22:29 PM PDT by MindBender26

Below are excerpts of e-mails, obtained by The State newspaper in December, between Gov. Mark Sanford's personal e-mail account 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 names.

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 ofyour 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.

What crap is this? Now emails of a Republican are fair game. If that’s the case then I want to hear everything ozero says outside of the situation room. I want his chatting with what’s her name.

The level of government corruption at every single level, is f-ing stunning...

While the country circles the drain, our so called leaders, are partying down in their celebrity like, perverted, corrupt lifestyles.

This isn't "Exclusive".

It's also posted here, and here.

I know there are folks that want to read these, and get some thrill from the peek into others lives.

But like emails from Bubba J, the text messages between the senator and the page, et al: I wish they'd drop this sort of "reporting".

_____________

If he was using a state computer, even if he was using a private account, they are the property of South Carolina. The Gov. can be “fired” for misuse of state property.

She must be good looking if he has to pull the VP card.

The only reason I am believing these are real emails - the unbelievably stupid statements today by Sanford and his wife.

First you had Sanford half apologizing and half acting like asmitten teenager.

Then his wife issued a statement that he earned a second chance - not unusual but didn’t he just get back this morning???

That was some quick earning. I am confused.

Better keep beating your drums, as the corruption, lies, and lavish lifestyles of government employees and the elected elite are clearly endless.

Correction. They've been around for some time. Seems as if the affair is known about, just not reported about. From the article:

“The Gov. can be “fired” for misuse of state property.”

Now come on, THAT can’t be state property too! Next the state will have to show it to the press.

It's a good thing he paid for the trip(s) to Argentina out of his own money.

He did...didn't he?

This happened in the late 1970’s; wait for a Godsend like Reagan.
