He’s headed down that road, but it seems in the AJC’s zeal to get the scoop, they botched the story.
House Speaker Glenn Richardson isn’t divorced, two Paulding County judges said Wednesday. At least not yet.
Paulding County Superior Court Judge James Osborne, Richardson’s former law partner, said Wednesday he had only put the records under court seal.
“I have not granted a divorce,” he told The Associated Press.
Osborne said the case is now in the hands of fellow Paulding County Superior Court Judge Tommy Beavers. Beavers told the AP that he hasn’t dissolved the speaker’s marriage either.
What’s really so funny about this story can now only be found in the Google cache. The AP, pursuing the story to get it right, had ended with “The [AJC] did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.”
At least the Speaker’s Office promptly calls even little ol’ me on stuff. The AJC might want to do better.
