I wonder why I haven't heard about this on the news. There was something on a blog about GA government(Capitol Impact) but nothing on the local evening news on the tube. I found this on TPM .
"Glenn Richardson, the family-values Republican who represented the county and was speaker of the house, stepped down after his ex-wife publicly accused him of having "a full-out affair" with a lobbyist while he was married.
So when Paulding County voters went to the polls for a special election Tuesday, they selected ... another family-values conservative who had admitted to an extramarital affair"
When Richardson resigned, the media just said he resigned. They didn't say whether he just resigned as Speaker of the House or if he resigned as a representative. After he resigned, I didn't hear anymore about him and nothing about his replacement.
"His campaign Web site touts his conservative, pro-family bona fides. "I believe Paulding County wants someone who will stand strong for the conservative principles we've always believed in ... lower taxes, limited government, personal responsibility, and valuing Life from the womb until natural death," he says.
But, as the writer Tom Crawford of Capitol Impact noted this week, Stout "has been compelled to address a personal incident from 10 years ago: he had an affair with his first wife's mother while his first wife was pregnant with their daughter. Stout and his first wife subsequently divorced"
"He also said the relationship with his mother-in-law "was stopped short of 'sex'"
How in the Hell can you have an adulterous affair that stopped short of 'Sex'????
