Glenn Richardson’s wife has decided to speak out.
In a nutshell, she thinks the suicide was a cry for attention designed to bring her back to him and she hates his guts and wouldn’t mind if he died and wants the world to know all about it and this is her excuse to get her revenge for him having an affair despite not having conjugal relations with the Speaker for a long time even before this all happened, not that this is an excuse for adultery.
Sounds like somebody wants attention and it ain’t the Speaker.
So much for the kids. Mom is going to have it out now in tabloid fashion.
Oh, one additional footnote — the former Mrs. Richardson is under the impression that people blame her for the Speaker’s suicide attempt. Really? Wow.
UPDATE: Good point in email — bring on the text messages and emails. Surely Mrs. Richardson saved them. If she’s got them and they back up what she said, we need a new Speaker yesterday. But I’m kind of surprised she didn’t do a doc dump with the interview, as opposed to potentially dragging this story out further. There are, after all, kids involved.
