Disgraced Former South Carolina Governor Engaged to Ex-Mistress, Proves True Love Is RealS

Remember Mark Sanford? He was the South Carolina governor who disappeared for five days a few years back to go have sex with his Argentine mistress in Buenos Aires but told campaign aides that he was on the Appalachian Trial, doing whatever it is people do when they're on the Appalachian Trail. Anyway, it turns out Sanford was right to abandon his state and wife and family to go have sex in Buenos Aires because now he and the mistress, TV reporter Maria Belen Chapur, are getting married. As CNN reports:

"Yes, we are engaged, and I'm both happy and excited for what that means," Sanford said in the statement. "I have long expressed my feelings for her, she's a wonderful person. My closest friends have met and love her, and I look forward to introducing her to still many more that have yet to do so."

True love, it's real.
