Stories that you don't want to see your name in No. XXII

Democrat family values?

Wife of Congressman Involved in Bar Fight
DETROIT (AP) -- The wife of Democratic U.S. Rep. John Conyers has been accused of punching a woman in the eye during a bar fight.

A spokesman for Monica Conyers, a city councilwoman-elect, confirmed Friday that she was involved in an altercation. But he said Conyers merely defended herself after being attacked by another woman.

Strange. I didn't see anything about his on his blog.


Columbus Mayor's Wife Gets 3 Days in Jail
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The wife of Mayor Michael Coleman pleaded guilty Wednesday to being drunk when she ran into a parked pickup truck with her car in October, and a judge sentenced her to three days in jail.
"I made a mistake, I've accepted the consequences and I want to move on with my life. That's all," Frankie Coleman said in Franklin County Municipal Court.
Attorneys for Coleman, 55, had fought the charge, which carries mandatory jail time and was based on a breath test that found she had a blood alcohol level of 0.271 percent - more than three times the legal limit for driving of 0.08 percent.
Mayor Michael Coleman, a Democrat, had recently dropped out of the governor's race citing family issues. He accompanied his wife to the court appearance.

Frankie and Monica should get together.
They'd make such a fun pair.
