Because we’re slaves to voyeurism and internet traffic, here’s another pic of former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford and his Latin lover Maria Belen Chapur on the beach at Punte del Este, Uruguay. That’s where the couple (yeah, we’re officially calling them that) first met a decade ago and where they went to rekindle their long-distance romance last week.

“I think it’s good,” a former Sanford confidant said of the ‘Luv Gov’s’ romantic getaway with his soul mate. “The guy deserved a lot of what happened to him but I’m glad some good came out of it for him. I sincerely hope he’s happy with her.”

And no … as far as we know, former S.C. First Lady Jenny Sanford never wore a thong (tha-thong-thong thong) …
