After becoming embroiled in scandal last year as a result of his affair with an Argentinean woman, South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford acknowledged today that he reunited with her this past weekend.
Sanford told reporters that he met with Maria Belen Chapur in Florida to see if they could restart their relationship, the Associated Press reports. The Republican governor would not reportedly say whether this was the first time he had seen Chapur since.

Sanford, who has reached his term limit, will leave office in January.
