Photo Search for Sanford Mistress, Maria Belen Shapur, Yields Beaver Shot

posted at 12:52 pm on June 25, 2009 by

Fox News is reporting that Mark Sanford’s Venezuelan mistress is said to be a “professional, passionate and beautiful brunette.”

Nobody seems to be able to find a picture of her though, but it’s certainly not for a lack of trying.

I gave it a shot at Google Images — searching the name of the woman, Maria Belen Shapur — and here was the top search result:

Yes, that’s the MIT beaver mascot. I could make a connection here, but I refuse to lower myself.

The search turned up a few other completely unrelated things as well.

Hey, maybe Sanford was up to something else in Venezuela (if that’s where he was) and “Maria Belen Shapur” is just his version of Captain Tuttle from M*A*S*H*. Ya never know with politicians these days.

Update: Actual photo found?

Shapur is the name of a Persian king. Is she married to an Iranian?

There might have been a foreign policy angle to this “affair.” Perhaps Sanford was in Argentine merely to poll the Iranian opposition?

Thanks for the photo link, Doug. We Canadians love beaver shots.

Finished with the moose knuckle?

Anyway, this is a better beaver shot than the one in breakfast of champions…

Well at least she is not a younger woman!

Hmmmm…if the News Bizarre photo is actually the Maria, Sanford has better taste in homewreckers than John Edwards.
