Sanford's Mistress Identified as Professional, Passionate and Beautiful Brunette
FoxNews ^

Posted on 06/25/2009 8:58:56 AM PDT by traumer

South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford's mistress is a 43-year-old employee of an international agriculture company who speaks several languages and lives in an upscale apartment building in Buenos Aires, Argentina, local media there are reporting.

Though details are sparse, Terra Noticias reported Thursday that the woman's name is Maria Belen Shapur and she works for the international agribusiness firm Bunge y Born.

The newspaper, along with Buenos Aires Continental Radio, reported that she lives next to the Buenos Aires Zoo in a 14-story building. A witness described her as a beautiful brunette with big eyes who plays tennis on a nearby lawn and runs every morning in her neighborhood.

The witness told the radio station that Sanford arrived at the complex, alone, with a small sports bag last week and asked to go inside the building.

Sanford admitted Wednesday to having an affair over the last year and covering up a secret trip to visit his mistress last week. The admission rocked the South Carolina political scene and has also captured the attention of the Buenos Aires media, as the governor provided few details about his lover.

Terra Noticias reported that Belen speaks English, Portuguese and Chinese, and that the company she supposedly works for is massive, with 25,000 employees in more than 30 countries, including 1,000 in Argentina, according to a profile on the Bunge Limited Web site.

Maria Belen Shapur sounds kind of Portuguese/Indian ~ could be she’s from Goa or was once married to an Indian guy or something?

That makes sense—he probably met her originally on some sort of business junket (since SC has a lot of agriculture and she works in agribusiness).

Shapur is a Persian name (Several Sassanian Kings were named Shapur... it’s a male given name and also a family name).

I wonder how he met her. She was originally a “dear, dear friend.”
One has to assume that this wasn’t just a hook-up with some Internet chat-room “friend.”

I just feel badly for his wife. He told her he was going hiking in the Appalachians - even tossed a sleeping bag in his car as cover. “I just want to get away, honey. I’m even going to have my phone off.”

What a humiliating way to find out your husband has been cheating on you. Now all your trust seems like naive foolishness. She’s a brave woman.

So, she's a seed collector, I take it.

The MSM would rather Sanford’s picture to be in the news than Al Gore. This way they can sneak through their Cap and Trade legislation. Watch our right hand while we hold you down with our left hand.

Its my guess this was a hit job to pull him out of the next election. He is a maverick and the GOP does not like mavericks.

Details on Bunge y Born, for the curious. But a photo of the homebreaker would, I admit, be more interesting.

He has a wife that loved him enough to bear him four healthy and handsome sons and he goes and screws another woman, on fathers day no less.

Just once I would like to see one of these wives walk out from behind the podium and kick the guys gonads up to his throat, THEN say they will enter counseling.

LOL... that’s kinda like a neighbor turning in the bank robber that lives next door to him. And someone else says, “He’s just doing it for the reward!”

My answer to that would be “Don’t rob banks and then your neighbor won’t be turning you in!”... :-)

Well, I agree that he is to blame. But if two people have an adulterous affair, they share the blame.
