South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford’s Argentine mistress
has been identified as Marie Belen Shapur. According to reports, Shapur works
for Bunge y Born, a multinational agribusiness and grain trading corporation. She
is fluent in English, Portuguese and Chinese.
Shapur, 43, has two sons and lives in Buenos Aires,
Argentina. She knew Sanford for 7 years before they began their year-long affair.
In a press conference held yesterday, Sanford admitted he
cheated on his wife of 20-years, Jenny Sanford, with a woman who was initially
only a “dear friend.” He did not identify the woman.
“I’ve been unfaithful to my wife. I developed a
relationship with what started as a dear, dear friend from Argentina,” Sanford
said at the news conference held in Columbia.
Sanford, 49, admitted the affair amid speculation over
his whereabouts for the past several days. He had not been seen in public since the 18th
and his staff told media outlets he was hiking in the Appalachian Trail.
On Wednesday, Sanford admitted to being in Buenos Aires,
Argentina with the woman. Sanford, who is serving his second straight term as
governor, said he is at fault for “shrouding this larger trip.”
