Glenn Richardson’s ex-wife Susan cuts loose about the real reason behind his suicide attempt. And she’s got text messages and emails to boot. Hell hath no fury indeed.
Yep, this is more like the Glennzilla we know & properly loathe. ‘Controlling & abusive’, who from a hospital bed will badger his ex wife to ‘take him back’ for the sake of his career goals. Nice that she also mentioned [several] GF’s on the side too.
I say he probably hangs on, but none too bravely or decorously and then slowly start to make an exit after this session. If he’s fortunate. If not? He’ll elect to ‘fight on’, and more GF’s will come out of the woodwork perhaps, and he’ll use whatever political capital he’s got defending his indefensible actions for months if not years at a time. But yeah, Susan better watch her back too, I’d put nothing past these Rethugs in the way they’d seek revenge upon her. We’ve seen it all before too. JMP
I’m still of the opinion that a suicide attempt should no more warrant his removal than, say, a heart attack.
But if what his ex-wife says is true, and this suicide attempt was part of a broader pattern of domestic abuse, including threats to use his authority as speaker to have her followed by the police, then he shouldn’t just be removed as Speaker, he should be ejected from the House.
Oh, and it’s nice to see that Erik Erickson believes that a person who speaks out against an abuser is a bad parent and attention seeker.
