    Exclusive: E-mails between Sanford, woman - Sanford - The State
    site gives pictures of her address and more.

    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.”

    yes, he is a jerkass, yes he is a louse, yes he is a sleaze, but what benefit is it to anybody to publicize any of this?

    This is not public policy. this is just sleaze for its own sake.

    Not really my idea of hot romantic letters. None of this "Shall I compare the to a summer's day..." lyricism I would expect out of published love letters

    Actually any emails he sent on state government computers would qualify under FOIA. Which would make them open for public review, how embarrassing.:redface:

    Who cares what the emails say? It's enough for me to know that he has cheated on his wife, which in my mind means I will probably never never ever vote for him if ever given the opportunity. That opportunity will probably never come, so oh well.

    The only way I would vote for him is if the other guy was even sleazier.

    Because most people thrive on sleaze and are simply dying of curiosity to know who has done what with whom ... so they can feel better about themselves.

    Why else was the Jerry Springer show such a hit?

    other than the fact that he ran around saying he was more moral than everyone else, why do you care about him having an affair?

    It's the hypocrisy... not the affair... that makes him unelectable in the future.

    How is this relevant to anything? She is still hurt, and he is still a jerk.

    Are you saying he is a gigolo too? Incompetent one as well. It does not pay to diss your paycheck.

    Michelle Malkin had a quote from her statement. I thought it was quite good. Translated from PR speak, she essentially said, "I still think family values are important, and I did my damnedest. Limited government is still best government and I still support that. But I had my fill of this bottom feeder and I gave him his walking papers two weeks ago."

    I think women like Hillary and Elizabeth Edwards do their sisters real harm. No short term gain is worth being spit on like that, and Mrs Sanford's statement is a real positive in every possible way.

    Why doesn't the wife dump him? That's what I don't get. I mean, did anyone hear the statement she released? She asked him to leave 2 weeks before this trip "to work things out" and the guy immediately goes off to Argentina to poke this woman. I dunno, Jenny, I'd say he kinda likes this broad. Maybe you should find someone else. Marriages nowadays, they're 50-50, you know.
