Florida (US), May 13 (ANI): South Carolina Governor. Mark Sanford has revealed that he spent last weekend in Florida with his Argentine girlfriend, hoping to rekindle their relationship.
The governor and his girlfriend, Maria Belen Chapur, were spotted by tipsters for the website Gawker over the weekend, and Sanford confronted the rumors head-on Wednesday, conceding during a news conference back home that he had seen the woman.
"As a matter of record, everybody in this room knows exactly who I was with over the weekend," Politico quoted Sanford, as saying.
"That is no mystery to anybody given what I said last summer. And, you know, the purpose was obviously to see if something could be restarted on that front, given the rather enormous geographic gulf between us. And time will tell. I don't know if it will or won't," he added.anford called Chapur his "soul mate" during an emotional press conference last June in which he admitted that he had been unfaithful to his wife, Jenny.
The governor said little else about his relationship with Chapur, though he suggested to reporters Wednesday that it was time to back off. (ANI)
