Maria Belen Chapur believes she was dumped by Congressman Mark Sanford because she was no longer of value to him politically.


Ms. Chapur said Mr. Sanford had asked to delay the marriage by two more years, when his son Blake would no longer be a minor and a divorce fight with his ex-wife over visitation rights would be moot.

“I’ve already been five years waiting and two years since the engagement,” she said.

Ms. Chapur was speaking from Paris, where she had just spent a week with Mr. Sanford.

“We had a great time here, we were like in a honeymoon,” she said. “I thought that he might tell me, ‘O.K., let’s put a date, end of 2015.’ But that didn’t happen. That’s why I wrote to him, ‘I had a spectacular week, you know I love you, but I don’t want to continue in the category of mistress, and if we continue like this I continue in that category, and I can’t bear it anymore. It has been really painful to me.’ ”

She continued, “His response was, ’24 months. If not I’ll say goodbye and I will look for you in 24 months.’ ” She said she had asked him to make their break public, but that Mr. Sanford did not warn her before announcing it on Facebook on Friday, catching her off guard. “I learned it from the press today,” she said Saturday…

Ms. Chapur said on Saturday that she did not buy Mr. Sanford’s explanation that his divorce was standing in the way of their marriage, and that he should not “leave blame on Jenny.” Ms. Chapur said she felt as if she had been cast aside now that Mr. Sanford was back in political office (he will face no major challenge this fall).

“I think that I was not useful to him anymore — he made the engagement thing four months before the elections,” Ms. Chapur said. “So this is not about his son, this is about his career and his ambitions.” Mr. Sanford, she said, “truly was the love of my life.” But, she added, “In 24 months, what was it going to be?”[su_csky_ad]

    Deere Ms. Used Mistress of Mark Sanford;

    As time passes (and it surely will), you will come to understand that people such as Mark Sanford can look you dead in the eye and LIE out their yazoo without so much as a moments indication. (what makes them successful Republican Elected Officials).

    His next tail hiked will no doubt be younger and by some estimates prettier (at least he will think so) than you, just as you were with Jen, howbeit there are a lot of men who would be willingly devout with Jen over you.

    You may at such time feel worthless, used, treated like a trashy little trollop , or feel like a cheap used hooker. That’s OK, as Mark doesn’t care, and very few if any of your friends will either. If, on the other hand, you would decide to accept the fact that you were used in full view of the world by the lying little lowlife and wish to even the score, I would suggest you contact Jen and see if you two girls couldn’t get together with a tell all book about the lying little weasel. It’s only a matter of time before somebody does, and makes a lot of money at it, might as well be you.?

      I fully qualify as a PROPHET OF GOD by biblical standards and am giving a green light to “not get mad, get even”. It’s OK -and-the right thing to do.

    I can’t even imagine anyone with a brain cell feeling bad for her. Karma is a b!%$*.

    sorry hunnie but he probably has moved on to a new girlfriend. as everyone knows, once a cheater always a cheater. Best of luck to you and sorry that you wasted so many years of your life being a mistress.

    The thrill is gone, babe. You’re yesterday’s news and it’s time for Sanford to move on, find someone younger, prettier and skinnier than you. It’s nothing personal. It’s just the GOP high moral and religious standards at work here, a value they hold very dear.

    I only hope that, during your fling with the married senator, you gained something more than a title of “ho” and “home wrecker”. I hope you received something of value from the scum, like a house, a nice car of a boatload of money.

    I think he was using his son and his custody battle with Jenny Sanford to avoid having to make a real commitment to marrying Maria Chapur. By doing this, he was able to have his cake and eat it, too. If he truly loves(d) her, he would/would have/ married her and continued working on the visitation/custody agreement with his ex. I find it amusing and ironic that all of a sudden he’s so concerned about spending time with his son when a few short years ago, he was MIA on Father’s Day because he’d slipped away to spend time with Ms. Chapur in Argentina.

    She should take a long shower to remove his scent from herself, call in a professional team of cleaners to sanitize her domicile(s,) spend a few weeks at an undisclosed location pampering herself, and forget she ever knew him. While she’s rethinking the relationship, she should ask herself why she wasted her time on him because she’s a beautiful young woman who shouldn’t have spent one second on this lying loser.
