Maria Belen Chapur’s lone appearance on Argentinian television eight years ago is now making the rounds on the Internet, and grainy screen captures from the September 2001 video represent the only available images of the woman whose affair with S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford has made international news.

Paparazzi, TV cameras and dozens of reporters have been stalking Chapur’s residence in Buenos Aires for days, but Chapur – if she is inside – has not shown herself.

FITS has now been able to confirm that the Maria Chapur that Argentine media initially claimed was Sanford’s lover is actually Maria Elisa Chapur, a Buenos Aires artist.
