Skip to comments.Former governor Sanford proposes to girlfriend

A newspaper in Argentina is reporting that former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford has proposed to his girlfriend, Maria Belen Chapur.
The relationship was revealed in June of 2009 when Sanford, who was then governor, took off without telling anyone where he went. It was later revealed Sanford had been in Argentina visiting Belen Chapur.
After his return, Sanford admitted to the extra-marital affair, which eventually led to the divorce from his wife, Jenny.
Clarin.com reports Sanford and Belen Chapur became engaged last Wednesday through a proposal Sanford planned with the employees of a Palermo restaurant where the couple had met for lunch. When translated from Spanish to English, the report described the proposal as "a scene from a novel."
Sanford has four boys with Jenny.
Yeah, those Latin spitfires are something else!!!/s;)
I’m kind of surprised the whore stayed with him through all of this.
I hate to say this but I can’t blame him. He’s in love. Women do it too ya know.
I am sorry his family couldnt stay together.I wonder what the kids think of all that has happened.
At least the Republican way to cheat involves falling in love with one other woman as opposed to the Democrat way which involves a long string of meaningless physical encounters with women you barely know.
Wish he’d take on light loafer Lindsay in the primary for the Senate.
Eh, good luck to him in repairing his relationship with his kids, sincerely. My dad did the same thing to us (including running off with a South American woman) and I could never really respect him again.
Was this the guy who was planning to hike the Appalachian Trail, but decide to go to the Argentine instead when he heard the Trail would be full of nakedists?
Maybe she’s good at de-chroming trailer hitches.
Is that the “other woman”? I suppose that’s an awful picture of her. She looks like a Kennedy.
This man was completely derelict in his duties. He should have resigned.
I think his former wife is a wonderful lady. Maybe we’ll see more of her when her children get a little older.
satan is at work, sanford is a fool, God didn’t bring him that tramp, satan did
yeah but his wee wee was happy and that is more important to his narcissistic self than the happiness of his children and grandchildren
Whew, for moment there I thought you were going to guote Obama.
But who cares about them? All that matters is that their dad has his every itch scratched. That will be his lasting legacy to these young men God placed in his care. Wouldn't be surprised to see him get a speaking role at the GOP convention.
I hate to say this but I cant blame him. Hes in love.
I don’t think “love” is defined by his actions. It looks a lot more like simple, sinful “lust.”
I nominate Gov. Stanford for father of the year...
Wait'...you would rather have a lying, cheating, adultery committing, POS as your senator...
Well, at least we know he's straight...
I am surprised he waited this long, especially when it was obvious he had found his soul mate. He gave up so much for this woman that I can only hope they both find happiness as they grow old together.
Wow, she looks like a Kennedy woman in that picture.
Maybe that’s the appeal Yech!!
Should check all the posts before commenting :-)
Arn’t y’all glad it aint Bawney the Frank?
He gave up his political career for love. Unfortunately it was with another woman from the one he married and had children with.
I don’ t care if Lindsay is gay or straight. Michael Graham weighed Lindsay’s loafers in Charleston, and found them to be regulation weight, by the way.
I don’t like Lindsay because he is moderate in a conservative state. He doesn’ t represent SC well, and tries to cut deals with libs to ingratiate himself.
If he is gay, he keeps it pretty much to himself.
Sanford is a decent guy with a good track record who made a mistake. He’d be a much better senator for SC.
