One Argentine legislator believes that Sampallo is doing the right thing:
"This is a brave decision," said Victoria Donda, the first known child of disappeared political prisoners to become a lawmaker in Argentina.
"This decision builds a path to justice, which is what our nation needs," she added. "I've come to support her because I think it's really important to be here."
Sampallo found out about her true identity with the help of the Madres de la Plaza de Mayo- a group of mothers and grandmothers who have sought for justice for those “disappeared” and killed during the “Dirty War.”
