By FITSNews || U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford – branded a nut job by his ex-wife and an opportunist by the woman he cheated on her with – is allegedly involved with a married woman from Georgia, the website East Coast Politics reported this week.
“Several sources close to Sanford tell East Coast Politics the former governor recently started seeing a woman from Georgia and went out with her to dinner publicly before he and Chapur broke it off,” the website reported. “These details have been repeated in conversations with other individuals familiar with the situation.”
The website purports to know the identity of the woman, but declined to name her “because she is married.”
Sources familiar with the report tell FITS the website may have been threatened with legal action after reaching out to the woman.
“Her husband, a businessman, is a past donor to Sanford, according to campaign finance records,” the website reported.
Wow … and the plot thickens.
The former two-term (2003-11) South Carolina governor – whose affair with Chapur derailed his 2012 presidential aspirations – called off his two-year engagement with his “soul mate” last Friday via an uncomfortably personal 2,400-word Facebook post.
That tome – which prompted national ridicule – has since been removed from Sanford’s Facebook page.
Meanwhile Chapur has told reporters that Sanford strung her out for the past few years and failed to notify her that he was going to declare their relationship “mutually” concluded.
