AP Newsbreak: SC gov says mistress is soul mate
AP ^ | 6/30/09 | Tamara Lush

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- COLUMBIA, S.C. - South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford declared his Argentine mistress his soul mate Tuesday but said he is committed to reconciling with his wife in hopes of saving his family and what is left of his political career.

Sanford, who also admitted meeting his lover more times than he had previously claimed, told The Associated Press in emotional interviews that he "crossed lines" with a handful of other women during 20 years of marriage.

But he said he never went as far as he did with Maria Belen Chapur, the woman at the center of the scandal that has derailed his once-promising political future.

First rule of holes, Mr. Sanford, is to quit digging.

And it wasn't her (I'm sure lovely) soul you were panting over in your emails.

When governors start talking like 8th grade girls, it’s time to find a new line of work. It’s been a pleasure knowing you Mr. Sanford. Enjoy your new line of work, whatever that may be.

He needs to shut-up, resign, and be divorced so he can go live with his soul mate and the rest of us never have to listen to him again.

Hey Sanford, shaddup already!

I'll second that. We've heard enough. We don't care about the details. Now just go away. Er, better let people know where you're going, though.

He’s going to get a shock when his “soul mate” no longer wants a washed-up politician.

This is unbelievable. I hope the people of SC boot him if he doesn’t have the decency to step down. It’s not the affair, but how he is handling the aftermath - his judgment is now totally up for grabs as a sissy little boy who got busted. That’s why Spitzer will be resurrected by the Dem MSM and Sanford will be crushed.

“This was a whole lot more than a simple affair, this was a love story,” Sanford said. “A forbidden one, a tragic one, but a love story at the end of the day.”

I think it’s time for him to abdicate. King Edward VIII did it. He can, too! Just think how romantic that would be.

I agree.

Everytime he opens his mouth, he just makes it worse.

Does he have some warped belief that if he keeps bringing this subject up (and gets slammed by everyone) that this is a form of self-flagellation or atonement for what he did?

OMG..just shut up (I mean Gov. Sanford, not the poster).

and this guy was our great hope for 2012?
Note to all freepers: Never fall in love with a politician (ideologically or otherwise).

When the news about his disappearance first broke, I knew right away that he is not ready for prime time. Even the best scenario (he just went off and allowed the story to emerge), would have shown his lack of media skills. Still, a lot of freepers defended him (”no big deal if governor takes off and disappears..who cares”). People can be blind to Messiah’s problems and allow this sort of weirdo to get the nomination.

Never worship any politician.

More like “An Officer and a Gentleman”, when the guy drops out of Flight School, only to realize that the only reason his girlfriend was with him was because she expected to marry a “Navy Aviator.”

Exactly what I was thinking. As soon as he is free, he will discover that she has several ‘soul-mates’ he is in competition with. The thrill being gone for her, does he really think she will want to hang around with a washed-up politician that can’t show his face in public? A guy that owes a ton in child support and alimony? Boy, is he dumb.

so much for presidential timber. if he can be reduced to a pathetic quivering mass because of a love affair, i’d hate to think of him manning the nuclear codes when she threatened to leave him.

Because he was found out to be a Nazi sympathizer.

Sanford’s life is the equivalent of a hyper man working madly to break through a door to reach another room only to find the new room smaller and lesser.

As he keeps breaking through doors into smaller rooms he will discover the cramp-mental-atmosphere of hell.

"First rule of holes, Mr. Sanford, is to quit digging."

First rule of holes is to not be one. This guy is a jerk, I pity his wife if she takes him back!

I can't imagine my husband saying that his mistress is his soul mate but, will you take me back? Oh brother!

Then he needs to MAN UP, resign, and go be with this soulmate, and stop humiliating his wife and kids. imagine those poor boys having to see their father make a horses @$$ out of himself on a daily basis. he should be locked in a windowless room with those 4 kids and have them vent their feelings to him. make him face what his idiocy has wrought on his boys.

“This was a whole lot more than a simple affair. . .”

Don’t most people who have sordid affairs think there was something “special” about their affair that rendered it “not sordid”?

He need to resign and reconcile with his wife, if she will have him. He made sacred promises to her that supersede anything he wants or feels now. He has sons, what kind of example is he setting for them?
