Paulding County voters elected Daniel Stout to fill the seat of former House Speaker Glenn Richardson, who resigned earlier this year after his ex-wife confirmed that he’d had an affair with a lobbyist.
Stout, a 29-year-old banker from Dallas, garnered 935 votes, or 59.5 percent of the votes cast Tuesday, to win the District 19 seat in the state House of Representatives.
With 99 percent of the precincts reporting, Ronny Sibley received 560 votes, while Jody Cash got 77 votes.
Stout had earlier confirmed that he also had an extra-marital affair, with his first wife’s mother, 10 years ago. He and his first wife divorced, and Stout remarried in 2005.
