Last December, Paulding County GA lost its representative in the Georgia House when he resigned in a high profile sex and conflict-of-interest scandal.
Glenn Richardson, the family-values Republican who represented the county and was speaker of the house, stepped down after his ex-wife publicly accused him of having "a full-out affair" with a lobbyist while he was married.
So when Paulding County voters went to the polls for a special election Tuesday, they selected ... another family-values conservative who had admitted to an extramarital affair!
Meet newly minted Rep. Daniel Stout.
His campaign Web site touts his conservative, pro-family bona fides. "I believe Paulding County wants someone who will stand strong for the conservative principles we've always believed in ... lower taxes, limited government, personal responsibility, and valuing Life from the womb until natural death," he says.
But, as the writer Tom Crawford of Capitol Impact noted this week, Stout "has been compelled to address a personal incident from 10 years ago: he had an affair with his first wife's mother while his first wife was pregnant with their daughter. Stout and his first wife subsequently divorced."
In a statement to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Stout apologized and said, "This humbling experience changed my life dramatically."
He also said the relationship with his mother-in-law "was stopped short of 'sex.'"
Here is how Stout describes himself on his website:
Hello, I’m Daniel Stout. I am married to Kelly who works as an administrator at Georgia State University. Kelly and I love to take leisurely drives in Paulding’s countryside on beautiful afternoons. We enjoy camping and spending time with friends and family.
I’m the proud father of nine-year-old Elizabeth (“Libby”). Libby loves anything pink, and especially loves dancing the “Pretzel” with her rhythm-less dad.
I’m the son of Marc and Pam Stout, and brother to Micah, Matthew, David, Elizabeth, Luke, Justus, and Benjamin.
I am a community banker for Highland Commercial Bank. I am a member of the Paulding County Republican Party, and a member of the National Rifle Association. I serve as Vice-President of Paulding County Right to Life and have served on the Board of Cobb Street Ministries since March of 2007.
I am a Christian, a Conservative, and a Republican.
Hmmmm...nothing about jumping his mother in law while his wife was pregnant.
Stout ran on the formula platform of family values in replacing
Glenn Richardson: “I believe Paulding County wants someone who will stand strong for the conservative principles we’ve always believed in … lower taxes, limited government, personal responsibility, and valuing Life from the womb until natural death.”
Har dee har har...
