BUZZ: Mark and Maria on the town

Mark and Maria made a rare appearance together Tuesday.

The report from the Washingtonian :

South Carolina Congressman Mark Sanford and Maria Belen Chapur, the Argentine woman for whom he gave up his marriage, and—briefly—his political career, appeared together Tuesday at a party to celebrate 30 years of democracy in Argentina.

The couple, whose affair became public in 2009, were among about 200 guests at the Spanish Colonial mansion that is the century-long headquarters of the Organization of American States.

They slipped in virtually unnoticed, and remained in the back of the room, for part of the program of speeches, music, and tango. The Ambassador of Argentina, Cecilia Nahon, welcomed them and stayed with them for only a brief conversation.
