Exclusive: Sanford booked 10-day getaway

On or around the day his wife asked him to move out, South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford booked a ten-day trip to Buenos Aires, a person familiar with the governor's travel plans told POLITICO.

Sanford booked the trip on Delta Air Lines on June 10, using the company's SkyMiles program, the source said. He bought a ticket for June 18, returning June 28.

Jenny Sanford said yesterday, June 24, that she'd "asked my husband to leave two weeks ago."

Sanford's trip was cut short after the local press raised questions about his absence, but the dates offer a glimpse into both his decision to depart as his marriage frayed, and after months of counseling.

13. You sound like a Republican
Everything is about sex...If the word Gay is brought up they immediately think of Sex and not a loving relationship. There are actually many loving relationships where sex plays almost no role at all.

19. Yes a nice loving relationship

WHILE CHEATING ON HIS FUCKING WIFE!

I agree that it may have been more than sex but come on...most flings aren't about deep loving relationships. They are about a heat seeking moisture missel launch.

4. Six days crying; the other four days "clearing his head," thrustingly, repeatedly,
If you catch my drift...

9. Europeans are probably baffled as to America's faux Puritanism
I submit to you Silvo Berlusconi. The Italian Prime Minister has had a long string of juicy sex scandals, and he still remains in office as powerful as ever.

I wish Sanford the best wishes as he moves to Argentina to live with the woman that he loves. He'll be happier there.

16. When did Silvo insist that other unfaithful politicians of both parties resign or be impeached?
Sivo is disgusting, IMO, but not anywhere near as hypocritical as Sanford. And Sanford was not hypocriticazl only about infidelity. He had a lot to say about politicians who lie about their affairs, too.

10. Found this article in Argentina's press on Sanford's mistress Mara Beln Chapur
Edited on Fri Jun-26-09 03:33 AM by IndianaGreen
Mara Beln Chapur, y no es funcionaria, sino una atractiva morocha de 43 aos, vecina de Palermo, divorciada hace mucho tiempo, madre de dos hijos adolescentes y ejecutiva de la firma Bunge&Born.

Mara Beln Chapur is not a civil servant, but an attractive brunette 43 years old, resident of Palermo, divorced long ago, mother of two adolescent children and an executive of the firm Bunge & Born (an Argentina-based multinational corporation).


On edit:

She worked briefly as a TV reporter:

18. So, he thought ending the affair (5 months after wife found out) would take 10 days, but managed to
end the affair in half the time? Kudos! :sarcasm:


Wonder how Mrs. Sanford felt when she heard him say he went to Argentina to end the affair and had spent 5 days crying in Argentina? Nothing like hearing your dh say leaving his mistress makes him cry for 5 days, even if you don't believe that he really went there to end the affair.


This guy is either nuts or a slime or both.
