‘Baghdad’ Jim McDermott Divorcing, Asks for his Privacy to be Respected

by lewwaters

In what must go down as one of the most hypocritical comments ever spoken, Washington Democratic congressman Jim McDermott has announced he and his wife of 14 years are divorcing. He issued the statement, “The end of a marriage is difficult and painful. This is a personal matter and I hope you will respect our privacy.”


McDermott it should be remembered, fought unsuccessfully for several years against charges he “violated federal law by turning over an illegally taped telephone call to reporters” in 1996, violating the civil rights of now Speaker of the House John Boehner.

McDermott leaked the illegally obtained phone conversation between Boehner and then Speaker Newt Gingrich to the New York Times. He was ordered to pay more than $700,000.

McDermott had no respect for others privacy and now that he might be embroiled in scandal, depending on the reasons for his wife divorcing him; he asks that his privacy be respected?

That is hypocrisy at the highest level.

  1. And I remember that screwed up situation from 2005 or so?I remember it was from some time ago. Because he is not my congresssman, I doubt I’d would give him much of a grain of salt in his wounds.

    I’ll leave him to answer to his OWN constituents and colleges on the hill.


  2. It’s very apparent that the bulk of the stupidity in the State of Washington is centered in the Seattle area. Perhaps an earthquake will slide that whole area into the ocean someday and we will be rid of it.
