The specific statement from

The images that are exclusive C5N issued a recent press coverage that María Belén Chapura conducted in the United States met during the first month after the fall of the Twin Towers.

Original post: Well, we now know the name of Mark Sanford’s Argentinean lady friend. It’s Maria Belen Chapur.

She: “runs marathons and is fluent in English, Portuguese, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese.”

The lady in this pic might or might not be her, but it came from the Facebook of a Maria Chapur and she’s standing in front of an Argentinean flag.
