Back On The Appalachian Trail: Mark Sanford Breaks Up With Girlfriend Via Crazy Facebook Post

Mark Sanford

Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC) has gone nuts again. This time he broke up with his girlfriend via a long rambling rant on his official Facebook page.

Here is just a snippet of the long-winded cray-cray that Rep. Sanford (R-SC) posted,

No relationship can stand forever this tension of being forced to pick between the one you love and your own son or daughter, and for this reason Belen and I have decided to call off the engagement. Maybe there will be another chapter when waters calm with Jenny, but at this point the environment is not conducive to building anything given no one would want to be caught in the middle of what’s now happening. Belen is a remarkably wonderful woman who I have always loved and I will be forever grateful for not only the many years we have known and loved each other, but the last six very tough ones wherein she has encouraged me and silently borne its tribulations with her ever warm and kind spirit.

Finally, Jenny and her lawyer also go on to ask me to undertake an array of programs and evaluations, each one more riveting than the next. As a public figure people have seen me over twenty years in the highs and lows and most trying of times, and if I was plagued by the afflictions they suggest wouldn’t people have seen me mad or angry by now? In simplest form I don’t understand how I can be elected by a wide array of folks at home to attempt to represent their interests in Washington, but if the Plaintiff’s view was to prevail, be required to take psychiatric and psychological evaluations to be with our youngest son. Posing those sorts of questions is destructive plain and simple, and in fairness to my friends in the media if those type questions are raised they will report them – which is why you have been subjected to reading this response and media accounts.

Sanford blamed his ex-wife for breaking up his relationship with his girlfriend with lawsuits. The problem is that Sanford didn’t post this rant on his personal Facebook page. He posted this on his official page as a member of Congress. Mark Sanford isn’t talking about policies that will help his district, or reaching out to constituents. Rep. Sanford is using his page to complain about his ex-wife and breakup with his girlfriend.

As Gov. Sanford proved, he was unstable by vanishing to go be with his mistress while he claimed that he was off hiking on the Appalachian trail. All of this bizarre behavior was brushed off by Republican voters who elected Sanford to fill Tim Scott’s old House seat. Rep. Sanford appears to have some emotional and possibly mental health issues. His election to the House is evidence that in some parts of the country anybody with an (R) beside their name on the ballot can win.

Mark Sanford shouldn’t be trusted with the responsibility of being a member of Congress. Mark Sanford is a fine example of why Congress is broken. The people that represent Republicans are just as unstable as the folks voting for them.

  1. Amazing article……correct on the fact that ANY and ALL right wingers will vote for anyone with a huge R beside their name and completely disregard any good/great Democrat running for office. I have found, as an independent, that most Democrats vote for the person R or D….but most Republicans hate the left and would rather stay home than cast a vote for anyone on the left…..sad times in America. I blame FOX news for the lies and spin they brainwash the right wing….then I find out that the FOX corp is owned by Murdock and the Prince of Saudi Arabia…(look it up its true) now I know they are destroying us from within… sheep to the slaughter house…..go the weak.

  2. The very definition of instability is to publicly display your break-up on a national level, not to mention that relationship torpedoed your marriage, political viability, and relationship with your children. That he will still be embraced by conservatives only speaks to their own instability.

  3. I jest don’t git how you atheists and other democraps come up with all this here lame stream media carp. Gotcha!

  4. EVERYone in SC is not an idiot…I didn’t vote for him. OR our governor. Granted, folks with common sense are a minority in many parts of the south, but we’re still here…the WEATHER is nice and the cost of liviing is reasonable. Heh…

  5. I think it’s telling that he doesn’t take any personal responsibility (GOP trait).
    Just before he was elected he was busted for sneaking around his ex’s house at night, by the light of his phone.
    He was still elected.
    SC Republicans and Dems(by not voting)
    got what they deserve.

  6. This was bound to fail. Serious problems from the get go…..yes he fell in love, but no one can build a foundation of a new relationship on the broken hearts of others.

    If his love is do great, He should resign his post ad congressman and go live in Argentina as an unknown.

  7. Personally I just want these politicians to be real. I don’t want to know about his personal life. I think he is a beat down man with a exwife who can’t move on. I went thru that but I moved on. Don’t make children suffer and make them have to pick parents. I am sick of their soap opera life. Just get in politics and do your job or get out and live your life. If you want your fiancee don’t let anyone stop you. YOu got a lawyer use them. You can still see your kids. Leave each other alone and move on with your lives. Quit making SC the butt of all the stupid Sanford jokes everyone tells. We got enough reality shows with what’s his name, oh yeah Ravenel and now he wants to run, please. what about Myrtle Manor and Party Down South and Reckless. They all make us look stupid. You all stop it. Good gosh.

  8. Another example of Republican, white, males not holding themselves accountable for their actions and decisions. Last week it was Bob McCain, this week its Mark Sanford.

    The only people Sandford and McDonnell care about are themselves. Both continue the Republicans theme of using women, then throwing them away like rotten garbage when through with them.

  9. Well they should interview him on Meet The Press about wether or not the president is doing a good job; now that its been certified he’s a blithering idiot. ;he’s gotta be chucks friend.

  10. And this THIS was (past tense) his SOULmate? What crap. He’s divorced, why didn’t he marry Ms. Don’t Cry for Me Argentina?” Knew it wasn’t going to happen. Mark is all about Mark. Period. Mr. “Family Values”. What a joke.

  11. One cannot go MIA to go backpacking through his mistresses vagina and expect to come out unscathed. He and John Edwards pegged the needle on the narcissistic meter.

  12. MHIOKALAYAR = Mental Health Issues OK As Long As You’re A Republican


    MHIOKALAYNAD = Mental Health Issues OK As Long As You’re Not A Democrat

  13. The TP is so mesmerized by ISIS that they are putting gas in their diesels!!!! LOL It is amazing that all these tough guys are scared to death of some 140 pound wise guys who live in the desert 7000 miles away.

  14. The kind of people that air their dirty laundry on Facebook are drama queens and white trash (Palin family). Just think, that white trailer trash was close to being VP of this nation. That party sure has changed since I gave up on it in the 80’s, but still kept their registration up until I voted for President Obama.

  15. The republican party is slowly and surely going down by the wayside and no one crying the blues about it. SC is getting what they deserves, those who stayed home and didn’t vote,was the ones who elected him back into office. When we don’t vote we get what we deserves and can’t blame no one but ourselves. That is how a lot of teaparty people got elected in 2010 because a lot of people didn’t vote. People learned a lesson from that time and bitter lesson it was as they watch a lot of their rights get taken from them and not by the president. They were led to believe that the teaparty was going to repeal obamacare, impeach the president, instead they saw women rights get trampled on, voter id laws get ambushed, workers rights get bushwacked and human rights issues rights torn to shreds by the right. All because the teaparty didn’t want a black man in the white house and convince the american people that it was the wrong thing to have a black man there as well.

  16. I can easily construct an alternate history which explains Sanford’s behavior.

    1. He is a complete narcissist.
    2. He completely believes the bilge out of Tom Coburn’s C-street house and ministry that he can do no wrong–lies, cheating, megalomania, infidelity, and self justifying narcissism: the entire immoral rotten battalion is present–because he is in service of God, defined mostly by enslavement of everyone who doesn’t look like him.
    3. Maria Belen, after living with the reality of this selfish lout, and possibly finding out that being exiled in the sticks while he was in Washington wasn’t her cup of tea, and possibly after the former wife unloaded with the police, finally caught a clue and dumped him.

    Cue to violins!

  17. Years ago I read a grim statistic that only 3% of relationships where the husband leaves his wife for another woman actually work out.

    97% of the relationships between the man and his mistress DON’T work out.

    Or as my mom always said: a man who marries his mistress creates an opening for the job.

  18. Your comment has been up for 4 hours. You’ve got 1 agree, and 2 disagree votes. For the life of me, I don’t see anything to disagree with about with your comments.

  19. Typical republican. Waiting to lay getting out of a terrible situation created by his self, by laying the blame on someone else.

    Suspect maybe family siblings, have given this creep Sanford an honest and intelligent choice, “them or her”. lol

    Keep hiking Sanford, because you are a republican and are not able to discern fantasy, between reality. While destroying those around you, with your need for greed and selfishness.

  20. Please don’t call the Democrats “the left.” They are not “the left” and are center right as a party. Sometimes it seems that all it takes to make someone a ‘leftist’ in the US is that they feel bad while they go about destroying the middle class and handing the country over to the super wealthy.
