Sanford email questions
1. HOW did The State obtain them/ from who?

2. Were they from a government server or a private email account?

3. Why were they interested in them in the first place?

4. Why did they hold them for 6 months?

5. Why did they publish them now?

6. Who/What exactly is The State?


Anyone know the answers to any or all of the above?

1. In the video section is an interview
with the reporter with Wolf Blitzer. He says they were sent to him and he doesn't know who sent them. They had no other proof so did not go forward with them but it did give them clues as to where he had disappeared to and that is why they had a reporter in South America and is why they were the only reporter on hand when he landed in the US.

3. Yep...
The Blitzer interview answers most of those questions. Plus, the reporter says they have more e-mails that they will be publishing.

5. Maybe there was an investigation for security reasons and an investigator
went all tabloid or something.

6. The State journalist (Gina Smith) who was on Rachel said
they were sent to the paper anonymously in December.

Not sure which account but since the staff were surprised it looks private

The State is owned by McClatchy newspapers.

After the interview with Gina Smith at the Atlanta Airport, people from the State phoned his staff and said they were about to release the emails so he had to come clean before those emails exposed him.

Don't rule out the wife or her father.

8. That's right, his office was told by the paper that they
had these explosive emails. It was then that he saw he was trapped and had no choice but to come clean.

Also, I don't believe that this affair started one year ago. I think it has been going on much longer than he is admitting.

This story is only different than all the other cheating hypocrite stories because it is apparent that this woman is the love of his life. And in a way, that is a pity. But that doesn't take away the fact that Sanford is a hypocrite and a fraud.

9. Pissed of staffer source? Or staffer with ties to Lt. Gov?
If from a computer at home, frankly I could see oldest son printing and mailing them. Kids can get pretty annoyed with philandering parent. Since Sanford said his wife knew about the affair months ago, it seems likely kids, or at least the oldest one, was on to it too.

Fury of a son trying to defend scorned mother is nothing to be sneezed at.
