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:

Jenny Sanford: Praying For Maria Belen Chapur

Jenny Sanford refuses to condemn her husband Mark's mistress Maria Belen Chapur. She just says she prays for her.

"Just the truth," when a hetersexual man cheats, he cheats with a woman. Sounds like women cheat, too.

Instead of condemning this man, you, especially LoveWins, are blaming the wife! Outrageous! You know NOTHING about their marital life, but hey, let's blame the wife, right? Since LoveWins (LW) makes assumptions about people she doesn't know, I'm going to do the same with LW. I'm going to assume that LW is merely a trophy wife and has nothing else to offer to the relationship, which is why she speaks the way that she does. Most women I know are career-oriented AND run the house AND realize sex is just ONE component of a marriage and not all of it.

The affair that Mark Sanford has been having in my opinion started 8 years ago, not just when he started having sexual relations with this woman. It was an affair of the heart!! That would almost be worse for me to accept that if he'd gone off with a prostitute. He fell in love with this woman. They were sharing things that he should have been sharing with his wife. Married men should NOT be communicating with other women on that level unless their wives know ALL about it. I'm not his judge or jury and I know God has already forgiven him so so do I. I will pray that he and his family will get through this somehow for the sake of those 4 beautiful boys.

You make it seem like it's the wife's fault he went out and did this. Stop blaming the victim. What kind of man would do so recklessly put his children under this kind of stress? He's just a selfish, immature guy. LoveWins, stop being an apologist for this man. I'm starting to wonder if maybe your current husband was once a cheater, you got him, and so now you defend Sanford?

it is just sickening, what he has done to his wife and boys! then in the emails, he MENTIONS his wife by name and quotes bible verses about "love"??? The final insult is that he says he didn't need love 15 years ago (e.g. the start of his political career) but DOES need it now? I feel so sorry for his younger than 15 year old boys who are now told they were conceived without any love!!! My spouse cheated 2x, but we've been able to move on. It is just horrendous!

The big hypocrite! This bum could be all over Bill Clinton, but now does the same things. He should resign in total disgrace. Oh, I'm sorry, he's a southern right-wing born again follower of Cheney and Rove so he can do no wrong. Yeah, Right.

Here in Europe these guys know that politicians are the bottom of the barrel. If they were such hot shit they'd have honest jobs. Europeans know that a politician lies, he cheats, has affairs, dirty business dealing and take bribes for big business. At least the dude wasn't trying to screw Sarah Palin or one of her daughters (knocked up or not)! One of the main things to look out for is some jerk waving the "I'm a christian" banner. What a loser!!!

LoveWins -- your comments were fascinating. Funny thing -- first I thought you were a man, and I was miffed by your first posting. But then when I read all of your postings, I understood your position more fully, and I understood what you were trying to say. I would add to all of this: Each of us in a marriage, man and woman, needs to keep the romantic spark going. I would add to women -- don't get fat, stay in shape, and do keep yourself trim. Furthermore, read the book "French Women Don't Get Fat." I would add to men -- show your woman your love daily with words and actions. LoveWins does see some broad truths in human nature. They are facts. Readers, learn from LoveWIns instead of screeching.

Once an affair starts it is hard to stop it, so why start it? I feel sorry for the whole family because something like this destroys the family, and everyone is hurt. Where is the shame?

JUST THE TRUTH: I'LL BET THE TRUTH WOULD BE A REVALATION FOR YOU GIRL. THE FACT IS ITS WOMEN WITH THIS KIND OF BELIEFS AND THINKING THAT SEND GUYS HUNTING. IF YOU COULD BEQUIET LONG ENOUGH TO LISTEN YOUR MAN IF YOU HAD ONE WOULD TELL YOU HE GOT MORE IN THE 8TH GRADE THAN YOU HAVE SUPPLIED IN THE LAST 10 YEARS
