Mark Sanford Emails to Mistress Maria Belen Shapur Revealed; Jenny Sanford Kicks Him Out

by at . Comments

Jenny Sanford, the wife of embattled South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, told her husband "to leave two weeks ago," according to reports.

When she found out about his infidelity with Maria Belen Shapur, Jenny "worked immediately to first seek reconciliation through forgiveness."

At first.

Eventually, "to look my sons in the eyes and maintain my dignity, self-respect, and my basic sense of right and wrong, I asked my husband to leave."

Jenny says she asked Mark Sanford not to contact the family during their separation. She says she had no idea where he was the past week.

One can assume it didn't help when she found out he was having an affair in Argentina with his mistress after having gone off the grid for days.

Meanwhile, The State newspaper in S.C., which accosted Sanford at the Atlanta airport, thus blowing his Appalachian Trail hiking cover story and forcing him to admit his Argentine affair, has a series of emails between Sanford and his mistress.

The woman, identified as Maria Belen Shapur, refused to talk to one of the newspaper's reporters when approached at her home in Buenos Aires, but the governor's office doesn't dispute the content of the emails, which date back a year or so.

Warning: The emails after the jump are so cheesy, you may find yourself vomiting spontaneously, even if you are a loyal Days of Our Lives viewer.

Here's an excerpt of one Mark Sanford love email to Maria Belen Shapur:

"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..."

"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...

"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."

Ew! Unsubscribe! Come on Mark. Does a career in politics rot your brain? He and John Edwards and Eliot Spitzer need to form some kind of support group.

It's safe to say any presidential ambitions he may have had for 2012 are kaput. Below are pics of Mark with estranged wife Jenny Sanford and their four kids.

Hope Maria Belen Shapur and her magnificent body parts were worth losing this:

Everyone is missing the point. This is clearly not a random adulterer as he's known this woman for 8 years and, furthermore, he seems to have fallen quite madly in love with her. I don't necessarily agree with "LoveWins", but he/she is right when he/she says that this isn't some sort of misogynistic affair where Sanford was interested in "just sex". I think alot of people here are jealous that they've never received a love note 1/2 that intense in their lives... God knows I am.

Husbands need to be controlled and put on a leash. If he strays, I will catch him because I have my girl-friends flirt with him. One time he was close (pants down), but her text to me 'came in time'. He owes me big time for that. She still teases him and tells me. His fault, for not telling me her advances. He thinks I got radar in the house (I don’t) and GPS on his car (I do). I could never give to my un-ttustful husband the way I give to my 'beloved' who is allowed to call me any nasty name and treat me like his pet. I know at the end of the 'pet show' I go to my own home and live my life on my terms. None of you seem to understand the sexual basic difference between a man and a woman: a man can insert it anywhere and feel good and dominant and get it off; a female needs a special 'wet-feeling’ to her partner to get that ‘give it up’ submissive release while still confident control is just arourn the corner.

I love being married. My wife is wonderful and beautiful. I also love getting some fat-ugly stupid thing to fall for me. You can imagine the thrill in getting her to anything I want.

Only a republican could think like the first poster. If a
couple has problems then you seek wise counsel. Cheating is
never the answer it only makes it worse. Most will admit this. The four sons must of really wondered why their Dad
found it more satisfying to be out of the country with his
lover then with them on Father's Day. I think we all know
where this republican governor placed his priorities.

I wish women would realize how much power we hold. If we all did, we would not have to put up with all this nonsense these small-minded creatures called men create. We would say no to infidelity, polygamy, affairs, degrading in music videos etc that we are put through by these men. But instead we let go of our morals and ability to stay in control and thus the rise of all these problems. Why can't we just stick together, we are all one thing...FEMALE. we are mothers and wives among many other great things!!!! Women, we hold the power, let us exercise it!!!! Say no to married men, DAMN IT!!!!!!!!

What happens in Mr. Stanford's life is between him, God his
family and persons of concern, none of us are perfect, we can
make mistakes, all of us need God's grace to make it through this troublesome life, let us pray for him his family and persons of concern, when we repent our trespasses are forgiven
God forgives all who repent, when we have truly repented, our
Father in heaven in Jesus Christ name Help all involved to recover from this situation amen

People! threads attract the soapbox crowd. Moralizing is fun, but let's not take this hobby so seriously. Hormones make idiots of humans. If the hormonal lightning never struck you yet (like Sanford during Bill Clinton's disgrace) then you get to talk tough and wave the flag of self-righteousness. Once it strikes, you know we are all sinners dressed in a thin veneer of moral superiority.

It appears that many of you are blaming his wife. I guess it was Hillary's fault....also Jackie Kennedy's fault...etc. Get your heads out of the sand. Don't insult the poor wife. She has done nothing wrong. He and his mistress are the guilty parties. Forbidden sex in an exotic setting is so much more exciting than a roll in the hay with the mother of your four children.
