You're here too Paul. Please check your moral superiority at the door.

I knew from the teevee that the emails were intimate ( but the import of what she looks like isn't that important.

Do you know how to check your spelling? It's very simple on the computer. I find it hard to give someone credibility that is acting as a publisher/journalist that cannot or will not check spelling. One error is so grossly incorrect too. Appalachia is the correct spelling. That is not the only word either. Check out the spelling for "enournous"
Should polish it up a bit. Seems like part typos and part not checking. Sorry; but I'm a little bit of a freak about writing and spelling as correctly as possible even in this age.

His wife is way better looking and much prettier than the mistress, and I'm sure his wife is a much nicer lady to boot. It's incomprehensible how Mark Sanford can be such a stupid idiot!

We really do not know Sanford's side. Maybe his wife got fat and cold(no sex) and he did not want his sex life to be over. 47 is too young to stop loving.

everyone, everyone, everyone.... calm down, get a life, and worry about more important things. Like complaining about Obama's healthcare plan.

And, in other news... Maria Benlen Chapur made a statement regarding the embarrassing situation with the American governor saying, "Don't cry for me, Argentina. I kept my promise."

She's 43?!!! If it is her, she looks exactly like the 'wife'...WTF?! Why cheat with someone who looks exactly like the one you already have?? Will never understand men. They are completely STUPID!

Latin Lovers have a metephysical allure and once you are hooked nothing else matters. Its worse than smoking crack.she is the most beautiful woman in the world only to you. And the Love or whatever it is you are feeling is a euphoria like no drug can give. These affairs don't last real long and its to bad because you hurt a lot of innocent people while making yourself look like an idiot. These women should avoid married men they let these relationships happen for monitary gain only and sometimes actually end up having feelings for the poor guy, when usually he is someone she wouldn't give the time of day. If you have a good wife she will forgive you and not let you forget every day for the rest of your life but she will still Love You unlike the mistress who will casually toss you aside as if you never existed and this is after you have lost almost everything you've ever worked for.

Her facial features are rather manly looking. I think his wife is much more attractive than this homewrecker.

Perhaps it was her personality that drew him to her. Regardless of what reasons he had for going to her, cheating on a spouse is ALWAYS wrong. If you want to be with another man or woman that badly, first divorce your spouse before doing this sort of thing.
