Other problem with messy divorces? Democrats have them, too.

Mike Flynn at Big Goverment has posted a story on Rep. Charlie Wilson, D-Ohio, whose ex-wife accused him of domestic violence in her divorce complaint:

Charles’ anger arose at his wife’s daring to oppose his demands. He jumped out of his chair and grabbed her about the neck as he slammed her into the refrigerator. He then grabbed her about both arms, shaking her as they both went over to the kitchen counter, which Mrs. Wilson struck with enough force to take the breath out of her. She then fell to the floor, hitting the bottom door to the sink. As she laid there stunned, she couldn’t move her head or pick up her arm.

Charles admits to grabbing plaintiff by the arms and shaking her. He admits grabbing her around the neck with one hand. He admits bruising plaintiffs’ arms and neck.

Wilson is facing a tough race in OH-6, which stretches along the Ohio River from Mahoning County to Athens. Expect an endorsement any day from the National Organization for Women.
