Mystery of Sanford's mistress deepens in Argentina

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – It's a wild scene outside the luxury apartment building where Gov. Mark Sanford's mistress reportedly lives, where dozens of journalists have camped out, interviewing every passerby in hopes of finding Sanford's elusive "Maria."

But with at least five Marias living in the building, the mystery persists.

Reporters and cameramen descended on Republica de la India street after a South Carolina newspaper found the address in the couple's steamy e-mails. But the paper, called The State, did not publish her last name, leaving the rest of the pack scrambling for clues and complaining about their stakeout duty on one of the coldest days of the Argentine winter.

Is it Maria the soy and fruit exporter or Maria the former television journalist? Maria the architect or Maria the artist? Or maybe the Maria who poses next to an Argentine flag on her Facebook page?

Hopes briefly rise as one woman walks out saying "Yes, I'm Maria!"

"But I'm not the one you're looking for!" she quickly adds, giggling her way down the sidewalk

Finally, another doorman comes on duty — Everard Alvarez — who denies that the woman on Facebook has anything to do with this tale.

Alvarez then confirms that the Maria named in Argentina's leading newspapers lives in the building — but he won't say whether the governor visited her during his trip to Argentina last week.

"It's a very large building, many people come and go all the time," he says.

Asked about her appearance, he says: "I look at my wife, I don't look at other women."

Smart answer!

These idiots don’t think ahead with all their playing around. No sympathy what-so-ever for people like this.

I think you just described a good portion of most politicians, in every party, all nations, around the globe.

It’s just that it’s the moderate to good looking, White-Straight Male (American Republican) Politicians are the ones who get slammed for it.

Guys. Ladies. Being human and having foibles.

But even one foible for a Republican - the sky is falling!

(but it’s so not a problem, when done by Democrats)

Ironic, isn’t it? The media will be 24/7 on stories like the governor’s affair and the death of Michael Jackson.

But, not a word about Obama refusing to show his birth certificate nor the court cases he is fighting to keep from showing it.

It’s the high price of screwing a governor from an American state. I hope to heck she wasn’t smug about it to her friends. She will get left alone soon.

I don’t think the vultures feel it has the same “appeal” as a mistress to a Republican.

I'm betting on the former television journalist.

Hopefully it's the Maria who tells the AP and it's reporters to stop stalking her and go pound sand.

“I’m betting on the former television journalist.”

You know, we never hear about journalist scandals, for some reason. Do they even HAVE scandals?/s;)

It would be the story of the century...heck...centuries...if zero was proven to be born in Kenya. The ultimate Catch Me If You Can. You'd think some enterprising reporter would be digging ferociously.

my exact thought. this came out yesterday, and these ‘reporters’ are already in Argentina, searching for some woman named Maria.

how are we supposed to take anything they say seriously when they haven’t even mentioned the birth certificate issue, let alone traveled to hawaii to check the story

AS I have said before -

I would rather he be screwing a willing female than us.

It sounds like he tried to prevent BO from forcing his state from having to accept BO’s terms and conditions for bale out and lost. I guess if I could no longer do my job and was prevented from doing what I was hired to do by the citizens of my state, I would take off and find a nice, soft, willing female to curl up with.

I was thinkng—it must be be amusing to a single, attractive woman to have had one of her affairs bring down a high public figure. A notch in her girdle, so to speak.

Apparently, it is. The Charleston paper has a story where there is a comments section. Someone from Argentina is claiming she's had several affairs with powerful men, basically a gold digger. http://www.postandcourier.com/news/2009/jun/26/mystery_woman_vigorous_athletic87333/ Picture here: http://www.urgente24.com/index.php?id=ver&tx_ttnews[tt_news]=124770&cHash=8d6137c92d

How do you solve a problem like Maria?
How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?
How do you find a word that means Maria?
A flibbertijibbet! A will-o’-the wisp! A clown!

Many a thing you know you’d like to tell her
Many a thing she ought to understand
But how do you make her stay
And listen to all you say
How do you keep a wave upon the sand

Oh, how do you solve a problem like Maria?
How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand?

Sanford has been a moron. Look at all he's given up for that tramp.
