Update May 12: Shock. Awe. The Post and Courier has confirmation that it was Maria Belen Chapur.

First reporting:

Everyone's favorite Gov. Mark Sanford was spotted this weekend in the Florida Keys with a "mystery woman" that was purported to look a lot like everyone's favorite Argentine mistress.

I'm not really sure how much of a story this is, but I figured I'd pass along word as you'll surely hear something sooner or later.

Gawker has the jump on the story while local station NBC News 2 has the confirmation that Sanford was in the Keys.

Update May 11: Judging by this article at The Post and Courier, it looks like Sanford's getaway may well add new life into legislation that requires the governor to notify the lieutenant governor when he'll be out of state.
