Why Hasn’t Mark Sanford Married His Soulmate?

You can’t negotiate with terrorists … something Mark Sanford is learning the hard way.

The former South Carolina governor – improbably elected to the U.S. Congress in 2013 after his spectacular fall from grace four years earlier – has run into the very buzz saw he was hoping to avoid.  We’re referring, of course, to a huge public blow-up with his ex-wife Jenny Sanford, who divorced him in the aftermath of his affair with Latin lover and soulmate Maria Belen Chapur.

Chapur and the “Luv Gov” announced their engagement in August of 2012 – although more than two years later no wedding date has been set (more on that momentarily).

The former first lady – a brilliant investment banker and scion of a wealthy Chicagoland family – seems to be painting a disturbing picture of the man whose political destiny she guided for more than a decade-and-a-half.

According to court papers filed by her attorney, Marie-Louise Ramsdale, Mark Sanford needs to undergo psychological and psychiatric examinations and take anger management courses.  The former first lady also wants to limit his access to their 15-year-old son, Blake Sanford, and have a guardian ad litem  appointed by the court to watch out for the boy’s best interests.

Not only that, she requests a restraining order barring Sanford from her property without “explicit prior written approval.”

Meanwhile, in hushed tones, sources close to the former first lady whisper of troubling “facts” about Mark Sanford that will soon come to light.

The goal of these filings appears to be simple: Paint the politician as a mentally unstable, potentially dangerous man.

But is Sanford – whose chronic narcissism has been extensively documented by this website – really crazy?  Or dangerous?

In a statement provided to members of the press, Sanford pulled no punches.

“Since the time of the divorce I have tried to do everything in my power to be both a good dad and a former husband,” he said. “It seems that nothing I can do at this point is enough, appropriate or adequate. The different accusations and requests made are, by their very nature preposterous, crazy, and wrong.”

At a hastily arranged morning meeting along Interstate 26, a source who has known both Mark and Jenny for years – and who has conversed with both Sanfords extensively during the current drama – sat down with FITS founding editor Will Folks, who it’s worth pointing out spent four years working for the Sanfords (only to become of the former governor’s harshest critics).

Visibly upset by the recent tension – the source is extremely nervous.  On the one hand they don’t want to be too specific with certain information for fear of being outed.  On the other hand, there is an overriding sense of loyalty to both Sanfords that makes every word, every observation offered a struggle – a frequently-aborted attempt to reconcile reality with their genuine affection for these two fundamentally flawed human beings.

They fidget.  Hem.  Haw. Obfuscate.

Eventually, we get to the heart of the matter.

“Access to the children has been held over (Mark Sanford’s) head,” the source told us. “He would have married (Maria) Belen by now were it not for Jenny’s threats.”

What sort of threats?

“Public humiliation,” the source said. “And turning the boys against him.”

The source adds that current S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley‘s famous snub of Mark Sanford – in which she refused to accommodate a request for football tickets and a lunch at the Governor’s Mansion on behalf of the Sanfords’ eldest son – was done at the direction of Jenny Sanford.

“Nikki asked Jenny what to do – and Jenny said ‘No,'” the source reveals.

The objective?  To prevent Sanford from “scoring points” with his sons.

The former first lady was also reportedly “furious” at Sanford taking his eldest son on a taxpayer-funded trip to China (a move this website also criticized, albeit for different reasons).

“Here is what you have to understand about Jenny,” the source says, finally opening up a bit. “Her competitiveness is the reason he won all those races.  It was part of her identity – same as her marriage.  But now he’s won without her.  And he’s got the younger, more attractive woman by his side.  And if that weren’t enough – it all came at her expense.  He humiliated her, replaced her – and got away with it.”

“Can you blame her for anything she’s done?” the source asked.

The source also referred to the timing of the latest dust-up as “being driven by Mark’s ambitions,” adding that Jenny Sanford has previously sought to create problems for her former husband based on the trajectory of his political star.

According to a source close to Jenny Sanford, the former first lady is not the vindictive bitch she’s being portrayed as … far from it.

“The media is completely blowing this case out of proportion,” the source said, referring to the court filings as standard documents that are being misinterpreted as some sort of vendetta.

“This case is simply about permitting the child to have input as to the time he spends with each parent,” the source said.  “He is of the age where that is appropriate – and that is what the court is being asked to do.  Simple.”

On September 15, a court will rule on Jenny Sanford’s requests to seal the case – and to appoint a guardian for her youngest son.  Visitation will not be addressed, at least not initially.

Cameras will flock to the courtroom.  National reporters will likely attend.

As much as South Carolinians might wish otherwise, the “Sanford Circus” remains in town.

I was told by a friend of Mark’s that he was never in love with Jenny. It was just a marriage of convenience. One where her controlling personality took 1st place. Her need of control has been ripped away by Mark moving on. She is like a lost puppy without having control over him anymore.

Good luck in court September 4, 2014 at 11:13 am

Sounds like he was lying to her from the get-go and he was using her for his own gains. Nothing to his credit. She felt the detachment and lack of reciprocity for sure but managed to raise fine sons despite everything.
The guardian ad litem could move them to more neutral ground as regards their minor aged boy.
The wording of the complaint almost begs them to get married rather than be unmarried “paramours.”. Not buying Jenny is keeping them apart. Convenient excuse.

carrie September 4, 2014 at 11:48 am

He never loved her? Maybe not in a hot passionate way but in a slow and comfortable way. They were very good friends, she was his helpmate and he trusted her so completely. They had four sons and were still intimate till she found out about the affair (per her book).
He just wanted to have fun and now probably misses the closeness of a comfortable relationship with Jenny thus no marriage in sight with MBC.

TSIB September 4, 2014 at 3:16 pm

I doubt he’s ever been in love with anyone but himself.

Rocky in Paradise September 5, 2014 at 11:56 am

For maybe that doesn’t count because she can’t understand why Gringos leave Gringas for Latinas. I know why. And so does Mark. And maybe, just maybe, Jenny will figure it out too.

chump no more! September 5, 2014 at 3:19 pm

Fawning latina women (or any fawning women) are the perfect fit for someone with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Cross your fingers that she is not a fawning, feigning woman. After 10 years, she either has her eyes on some prize or maybe she really loves you. Good Luck!

Rocky September 5, 2014 at 9:22 am

She was already living here, legally, working for a Fortune 500 company, that BTW, paid for her MBA. Came from well-to-do South American family – not a whole lot different than Maria. Don’t knock the ride until you’re on it. In fact, she had already applied for her citizenship before we got married, and completed it before we got married. Legally. You’re such a dork.

Maybe? September 5, 2014 at 1:18 pm

You know, it’s interesting that after explaining her entire path of citizenship to me, you called me a dork. Obviously I struck a nerve of some sort.

“Don’t knock the ride until you’re on it.”

I never actually knocked “the ride”, I actually can’t imagine referring to my wife as “the ride”, but since you brought it up I was referring to the circumstances surrounding your marriage to your wife…not your wife herself.

Rocky September 5, 2014 at 2:15 pm

The ride doesn’t have to be sexual – get your mind out of the gutter. Typical American women can be characterized by “who’s going to make my SUV payment.” Typical Latina women values family, husband, relationship over the other things. One wants to be a partner – other just wants payments.

Maybe? September 5, 2014 at 8:27 pm

“The ride doesn’t have to be sexual – get your mind out of the gutter.”

Wow…I never meant it that way….seriously….I’m actually kind of sad for you right now.

Smirks September 4, 2014 at 10:27 am

If Jenny wants Mark to leave Maria, she should encourage him to marry her. Then it’ll only be a matter of time before he gets lost on the Appalachian Trail again.

Though I suspect that is limited to people who are even dumber than he is.

Well… is that new chair down on campus..? Well, it looks like you have some time to actually kick up some dust. We just want to know if you have had time to read this article here..?

What do you find interesting and pertinent..? Dare to wonder why Jenny Sanford is concerned..? Dare to wonder why Wil Folks has not mentioned anything about this scratching deal in Port Royal..? Heck, why would Jenny kick up such a fuss with this divorce media stunt that garners deflective attention for Tom Davis and Vida Miller? Both reps do have ports to leverage in their backyards….do they not..? So Glenn, how much CofC funding finds its way via “field trips” down to Port Royal… you know..?

Ya know Glenn, if you use Google Earth and follow the SPA land and rail tracks along Port Royal………what are the residents of Port Royal not being told..? How does Furman play into a Nest in Orangeburg…!?

Glenn……Wil Folks is NOT stupid and neither is Mande Wilkes or Liz Gunn …or Mrs GOLDFINCH…!!!

Glenn McConnell….I rarely use this language ………you BASTARD….!!!

If you don not think that Jenny is garnering press points with the Post and Courier SQUARE developer and Magnolia “paradise” and some Port Royal “Tea” ladies then you do not understand …….ball leverage…!!

Ya know Glenn……….if Ladies at SPAWAR Atlantic were actually informed about the taxpayer real estate “fiefdom” ….you do know they would would actually find out that some DOD funds were leveraged the same way to pork pipeline control that the terrorists in Iraq and Syria are slicing heads over NOW…!!!

Glenn….you may want to lock yourself up in the Hunley…!!!!

old lawyer September 4, 2014 at 11:11 am

I agree with the person who said on Fits first story on this mess, that this situation is a failure of the lawyers to convince their clients that reason and common sense should control this situation at this point in the child custody and visitation. Good family court lawyers would have had a mediator come in, waste a day of namby pamby talk, then at 4 pm when all 3 lawyers have made about 3 grand for coddling these two immature adults, the case would be settled.

Unless it is true that Ramsdale is part of this ploy to hurt Sanford politically. I know her and this is I what believe. Ramsdale is a Democrat to her very core and obsessively wants to be one of the big players in the SC Democratic Party. .

Marie-Louise might like to have his seat. I remember her from USC, sweet girl back then. Heard she married an older man and lived on an estate somewhere down there. It’s about time to run, she’s still in her 40s, can’t imagine why she hasn’t already embarked on a political career. Is she with a firm?

old lawyer September 4, 2014 at 12:05 pm

I have heard the same things about Marie-Louise – that she would do anything to get Sanford’s seat. I did not include that nugget in my first post. I have known her since she started with City Year….”sweet” is not the adjective I would have chosen…..But she is good at faking “sweet” as so many politicians seem to be.

Hey U September 4, 2014 at 11:50 am

I have every reason to believe that Ramsdale and Jenny’s other two lawyers are entwined in collusion with political motivations. Anyone who knows their history, like you obviously seem, would think so, too.

Rocky September 4, 2014 at 12:21 pm

No failure on the lawyers part. I’ve personally witnessed lawyers stare in utter amazement at how stupid their clients can be. They will usually put liens on the clients house to get payment – hoping to snap some sense into them – but it rarely works. Hatred is irrational, and and irrational client cannot be controled.
My wife has a cousin in Chicago who said “I’m going to be lawyer and do family law – because the courts treat the husbands like dogs and the wives always keep it going.”

What Is Real September 4, 2014 at 11:13 am

This report might be considered helpful. But the history here is salient that Jenny is bitter and being vindictive. Standard allegations for family court? Standard pleadings? Yes. With respect to most of the entire State of South Carolina alleging that Jenny is being vindictive, spiteful, and bitter – and from my view and understand of domestic matters as an outsider who has read hundreds of domestic cases and heard dozens of stories about SC family court where children are involved and who knows the tactics dirty lawyers will use? You bet.
Jenny is bitter, spiteful, and being vindictive. She wants to do anything she can to destroy the father of her three sons. And her three attorneys, they don’t care. They just want money. That is all four of their motives, in a nutshell.

Okay Will, you worked for the douchebag former goobernor for a while – does he have anger management issues or is his former douchebag wife just a bitter douchebag “ex-wife”? Sorry – I’m done with the feminine hygiene comments now…

Interesting that she would bring all of this up now – Sanford is running virtually unopposed and will easily defeat independent Dimitri Cherny (whoever he is).
Cherny for his part has little to say, his “website” url is a dead link, his Facebook Page has zero friends and there are all of about 20 hits on google for him. He is however a big presence on LinkedIn – the “Facebook for professionals”
He describes himself as a “…disciple of Michael Hammer, Six Sigma practitioner, efficiency nut…. I think he could have just said he was a nut and pretty much summed his existence up.

BrigidBernadette September 4, 2014 at 1:47 pm

Holy moly, look at three of his policy points:

• Creating a federal job guarantee program and paying a living wage

• Setting a national earning target of $1,000 a week; no person earning less than that would have to pay federal income tax.

• Implementing a 100-to-1 take-home pay limit; no American working
full-time would take home less than one percent of the earnings of any
other American.

The Colonel September 4, 2014 at 4:30 pm

Yeah cause that federal jobs program and living wage plan worked so well for the Soviet Union, wait…

Why does a 17 year old need “a living wage” the vast majority of minimum wage workers (nearly 80 percent) belong to families that earn nearly triple the poverty level for a family of four at $65,900 a year. Only 22 percent live at or below the poverty line.

I don’t even understand what his point is with his 100-1 plan – how would it be adjudicated?

BrigidBernadette September 4, 2014 at 6:53 pm

I know right, a guy named Dimitri promoting corporate fascist policies. But he tells us he’s a genius. Maybe he can brush up on Bastiat, Hayek, and Rand. I’d like to see him debate Sanford, on exactly those writers. If he got 10k signatures, he deserves a debate, several in fact.

“Access to the children has been held over (Mark Sanford’s) head,” the source told us. “He would have married (Maria) Belen by now were it not for Jenny’s threats.”
Anyone who knows how bitter ex’s can be where minor children are involved, would understand. Sadly, many old school mentalities don’t get it. I think Sic does. Family Court can be a tangled mess of wild allegations and crazy emotions. Lawyers who practice in the area of family law will, and do, take advantage of wealthy clients and their weathly adversaries. It is easy to read into the Sanford case, sure enough. And Jenny is showing that she refuses to let go. Her lawyers ( who are hard core democrats with ties many of you do not know about ) see it as an opportunity to score points with their party, inter alia.
I wonder about Jenny’s lawyers likelihood of having US Congressman Mark Sanford followed and/or being electronically and/or physically spied upon. They need to be questioned and put on the stand – under oath.
I do not like this case. Upon its face, it seems to be nothing more than a political stunt … Jenny being vindictive … and a way for her to possibly get back on main stream tv shows, and to generate another story line for another possible book. You have to remember what Jenny comes from. She is not the little frail looking darling that she and her cronies will try to have you believe. She has many of the traits of a charismatic psychopath.

From the SCPSD site: “Sanford returned five days later from Argentina to publicly confess an affair with a woman he says he is going to marry. But you know how that perpetual “fiance” claim goes with some people in the South. The live-in only turns into a “fiance” if they are on TV, being arrested or one (the non-fiance) hits the lottery.”

The boys are of age to decide for themselves,if and when they want to see their father.

Do you know anything about The Family/The Fellowship/C Street, the religio-political-business-military cabal he mentioned in his post ‘hike’ news conference?
Of course, he has bats in his belfry!

Hey U September 4, 2014 at 11:58 am

I think a there needs to be a Congressional Investigation launched into Jenny’s lawyers …… Putting a gps tracking device on a member of Congress’ automobile without a court order is very SERIOUS CHIT!!

snickering September 4, 2014 at 12:06 pm

Not one thing Mark Sanford sounds plausible. I heard thru the grapevine Maria doesn’t like the US and won’t marry him. Talk about familiarity breeding contempt.

99 September 4, 2014 at 12:27 pm

But she is still right by his side. You can tell, the way she looks at him, that she does love him.

carrie September 4, 2014 at 12:30 pm

Read somewhere that she said she loves her country. Mark loves the Low Country and will never leave. Could geography be a drawback to their wedding plans?

snickering September 4, 2014 at 12:13 pm

Maybe Jenny’s Father (Owner of (SKIL) and extremely wealthy is keeping it going until he exacts revenge with Mark Sanford. He did try to get ALL the money he contributed to Sanford’s campaign. LOL I really wanted to see that.

99 September 4, 2014 at 12:26 pm

Good point. Chicago gangster tactics.

Philip Branton September 4, 2014 at 12:14 pm

Dare to wonder who will get “torpedoed” when it is announced that South Carolina has a “leviathan” off its coast…and has been known for…DECADES..!?

Wonder if we will SELL to Jordan…?

BrigidBernadette September 4, 2014 at 7:16 pm

WOW! Well, if this has been known for decades, what is the reason no one has developed it? SC needs something like the Alaska Permanent Fund, and I’d like to see it work the way Palin did in 2008, with an annual tax time dividend check. Palin the socialist–who knew. Put half the fund payments into the Fund for SC’s future, give the rest directly to the citizens in cash payment.

And that story is remarkable–SC and Sanford aside.

Philip Branton September 4, 2014 at 8:12 pm

Brigid………..When you use Google Earth and realize where the Nile River ran MILLIONS of years ago………you can predict very easy where OIL or GAS is going to be in a basin.

SO…….look up and down the Eastern Seaboard and think MILLONS of years ago.

My Geologist roommate in college was not god; but he sure knew how to explain geological deductive reasoning and “predictability risk”…!!

When history is revealed……….about our political leaders………its not gonna be pretty.!!

Our founding fathers hoped for so much better….

Bible Thumper September 4, 2014 at 12:19 pm

“He would have married (Maria) Belen by now were it not for Jenny’s threats.”
Jenny’s lawyers have thrown everything and the kitchen sink at Mark. What threats could she make?

Would it hurt him legally in regard to Jenny’s filing if he married? He is legally divorced. He wouldn’t have to worry about having Maria overnight when with his son.
Sounds to me that one or both don’t want to get married.

Rocky September 4, 2014 at 12:28 pm

The wife would go ballistic. When mine found out about my marriage to my South American sweetie – within four hours I had a flurry of hateful phone messages, and then was back in court within a month.

Bible Thumper September 4, 2014 at 12:30 pm

Court? That bridge has been crossed.

Rocky September 4, 2014 at 1:10 pm

Yeah court. Visitation is like a monetary judgement. Constant enforcement required.

Bull Shit!!
He will NEVER trust her, nor her him. Once a cheater, ALWAYS a cheater!

Rocky September 4, 2014 at 12:27 pm

Mark Sanford – through all this is saying – “the hottest chick in the room is with me. I have my soulmate. So Jenny – who gives a damn what you think?”
My only question to Mark would be, if I was single, “does she have a sister?”

guest September 4, 2014 at 8:32 pm

So shallow.

99 September 4, 2014 at 12:29 pm

So, did Jenny’s lawyers hire their private investigators to spy on a member of Congress?

nitrat September 4, 2014 at 6:06 pm

I’m more concerned that people like Mark Sanford get security clearances.

aikencounty September 4, 2014 at 6:54 pm

Can you get a clearance while shacking with a foreigner?

?!? September 4, 2014 at 8:39 pm

The Argentine peso is sinking. What are the implications for Chapur as ex-pat/resident alien? Better marry quick before Argentina claws back their wealthy.

aikencounty September 5, 2014 at 5:59 am

She got money?
The story line on her at first was she was a TV reporter who had a history of “crawling uo under’ men of position or supposed wealth.

99 September 4, 2014 at 12:35 pm

The NSA refused to deny whether or not they spied on members of Congress, but says it would’ve been illegal if they had. <<< Tell this to Jenny's lawyers.

99 September 4, 2014 at 12:41 pm

There is going to have to be a Congressional investigation as to whether or not Jenny’s lawyers secretly has had anyone spy on Mark, or were at least involved with such.

Deo Vindice SC September 4, 2014 at 2:25 pm

I could make Jenny forget there ever was a Sanford, uumm !

Rocky September 4, 2014 at 2:56 pm

Too bad you’d never forget there was a Jenny. Maria is so super hot. Just check out that picture. She makes all others look like second rate beef. I mean, she’s smokin’ hot. She’s Maurice-alisious.

TSIB September 4, 2014 at 3:21 pm

This is bullshit. Your “source” is blowing smoke up your butt. The reason is that if Sanford MARRIED Maria then he wouldn’t have to justify to a court having her around his kids. SC family courts are pretty conservative and they would frown on a divorced parent having his or her kids in the house when a “paramour,” as opposed to a second spouse, sleeps over.

In short, if Sanford is claiming that his reason for not marrying Maria is fear of losing access to his kids, he’s lying like a rug. Which seems to be his default mode.

Dr. D September 4, 2014 at 3:35 pm

Yeah, he really cared about his Kids while “hiking the App. Trail” and sneaking off again on FATHER’s DAY, no less.
Just more betrayal and lies and neglect of “Jenny and OUR FOUR (4) little boys!
No different than Eckstrom, Peeler and Haley. None put anyone, not even their children and especially the children of their paramour’s. ll of whom will carry life long scars their cheating parents gave them!
What lesson does this leave those children in their lives and formative years?
Work with these children and you will have NO sympathy for any of these narcissist and self absorbed, who plave themselves above all else!

anon. September 4, 2014 at 5:45 pm

Jenny Sanford, GET A LIFE!

CharlesDikkens September 4, 2014 at 6:01 pm

Maybe the kid walked in on his Dad’s soulmate holding those two magnificent parts of her with the setting sun illuminating her tan lines. Those Sanford men dig tan lines.

SC LAST STATE IN US September 4, 2014 at 6:02 pm

Family court is old and very out dated. Way out of the times, indeed. The old case law that repeats and repeats from the 60s and 70s, actually worthless in today’s times. South Carolina is the only state in the USA where voters have no say in who sits on the benches.

nitrat September 4, 2014 at 6:22 pm

Do you not pay attention to the absolute scum who get elected on all levels of government in this state?
And, you trust SC voters to elect judges?

nitrat September 4, 2014 at 6:03 pm

“National reporter will likely attend”
From trashy blogs?

Bad Storm Brewing September 4, 2014 at 6:06 pm

They are going to make Jenny’s lawyers all look like psycho man haters. You better believe it. 100s of reporters want the dirt on her land sharks, and they are being well fed with lots of it. There is already lots of talk about her lawyers having a GPS device put on Mark’s automobile.

aikencounty September 4, 2014 at 7:51 pm

What kind of visa is the “soul mate” here under?

Shamrockjoe September 6, 2014 at 3:13 am

Fiancée visa I would imagine.

Call Dusty And Ask Him September 5, 2014 at 3:18 am

I find it very odd and bizarre that Jenny Sanford has hired 3 different lawyers to go after Mark. And saying that the pleadings are “standard” allegations, that is like saying there are ‘standard lies.’ Sham pleadings can cause a lawyer to end up being disbarred. But from what I hear, Marie-Louise Ramsdale is likely foolish enough to do it because of her close relationships with the judges in Charleston. I have seen this before. Lawyers stand right up before a court, and knowingly lie on record. The system is self policing in South Carolina. Its a cesspool of corruption, I tell you. Just ask Attorney Dusty Rhoades in Charleston. He has more balls to speak out against the system in the face of a camera than any other lawyer down there.

Call Dusty And Ask Him September 5, 2014 at 3:29 am

Marie-Louise Ramsdale Review: ” She was my divorce attorney and quit on me. Personally her inexperience allowed me to get hung with a bad mediation agreement costing me $100,000 over 7 years. I think she felt bad and when I asserted myself and push, she quit on me and said our objectives were different. What did she think family law was going to be a cake walk – it is dirty business. She screwed up not me, now I have to hire another attorney and put up thousands of dollars for another retainer. “

“I am not at all satisfied with [the article],” said Marie Louise Ramsdale. “It trivialized what we on the ‘left’ are working for.”

Jenny's Lover Dumped Her Too September 5, 2014 at 9:56 am

Apr 15 2010 — SULLIVAN’S ISLAND — Divorced former first lady Jenny Sanford confirmed that she’s dating a Georgia businessman whose coastal vacation home is a few doors down from hers.

Sanford on Wednesday told The Associated Press she met Clay Boardman when he attended a speech she gave at the College of Charleston on March 17.

The two have gone out in Charleston and also attended The Masters in Augusta over the weekend.

Sanford said she and Boardman are “getting along beautifully.”
(Update — Her Lover Dumped Her. They stayed Over At Each Others Houses, According to Rumors From Neighbors ).

aikencounty September 5, 2014 at 6:48 pm

He is “old” money from Augusta. Rather large clan, and NONE of then seek out the “limelight”.
I was mildly surprised when I read they were keeping company.
Not surprised when he dumped her.

Jenny's Lover Dumped Her Too September 5, 2014 at 10:05 am

The couple’s 2010 divorce settlement says neither may enter the other’s home without permission. Mark Sanford lives about a 20-minute drive away in downtown Charleston.

Jenny's Lover Dumped Her Too September 5, 2014 at 10:06 am

Jenny Sanford’s 2010 lawyer, Deena Smith McRackan

Q September 5, 2014 at 11:19 am

A flunky family court judge has ordered U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford and his ex-wife, Jenny, to work with a mediator to resolve a dispute over money for their two youngest sons. They sit down and mediate. But within a couple of days of that, Jenny’s 3 lawyers (all members of the democratic party) are filing a separate court action, an action which asked for orders already found in the body of their divorce decree. This is odd. Then we have seen where Jenny was considering running against Mark Sanford when Tim Scotts Congressional seat became vacate. Then, Jenny applied for the position at the College of Charleston that Glenn McConnell now holds, but she withdrew before considerations were made.

Jenny states that she has tried to email Mark dozens of times about matters concerning money for the teenage boys’ college education. But emails? Evidence rules on emails … proving they were received … its an interesting subject. Courier services or US certified mail with return receipt, might sound old fashion – but still the best route when you want proof of delivery.

“Jenny Sanford testified that she and two attorneys have e-mailed Sanford a number of times about the trust account issue.”

“To date he has refused to respond to any e-mail from me or anyone else,” she said, adding that her ex-husband has not put money into the accounts.
Jenny’s Attorneys, they should be put on the stand, placed under oath, and examined. I think they need to provide those emails and allow for a full forensic investigation. But nevertheless, sending emails is not exactly wise. Sending hard mail with proof of delivery or service, is. Lawyers do lie. Lawyers will distort the truth. And there is motivation for Jenny’s lawyers to do just that. Perhaps they sound be investigated; more so, with rumors flying around that they had gps tracking put on Mark’s automobile.

Are they afraid he is going to leave the country?
