Oh my!

Sara Evans is evidently a country star and also appears on the show "Dancing With the Stars". I've never heard of her, but she recently quit the TV gig and filed for divorce. It sounds.... icky.
Sara Evans filed for divorce Thursday from her husband of 13 years, Craig Schelske, in Williamson County, alleging that he had committed adultery, verbally abused her and frequently watched pornography at home. On Thursday, Evans announced that she has dropped out of the ABC show “Dancing with the Stars” to give her family her full attention.

According to the document filed in chancery court, Schelske allegedly has on his computer at least 100 photographs of himself posing in an aroused state. There are several photographs of him having sex with other women, the filings stated.

“On his computers, husband maintains ‘Craigs Lists.’ Many of them involve requests for three party sex and anal sex. Husband’s ‘Craigs Lists’ are composed of personal ads on his personal sex engine involving him and prospective sex partners,” the documents stated.

The court document included an exhibit of nine recent “Craigs Lists’’ items stored in the temporary files of his computers.

Craigslist is an online ad service.

On Sept. 28, one of the children confronted Schelske, 43, at the couple’s Franklin home when he was watching pornography on TV, the filing stated. The couple’s children are 2, 3 and 7 years old.

Evans, 35, requested a temporary restraining order prohibiting Schelske from physically and verbally abusing her, exposing their three young children to pornographic materials of any kind, consuming alcoholic beverages to excess in front of Evans or the children, and taking their children to Oregon, which would interfere with her temporary and pending custody.

This would just be another tawdry tabloid tale, if it weren't for the fact that the hubby in this case is a big Republican who ran for Congress. He's also
chairman of Craig PAC, a national political action committee dedicated to electing Republicans at the federal and state level, and executive director of the conservative organization American Destiny Inc.
according to this account in the Washingtom Post, which also interestingly tells of Tom Delay's attempts to influence the vote on "Dancing With the Stars".
When DeLay resigned from Congress, several months after stepping down as House majority leader last September after a Texas grand jury indicted him on charges stemming from a campaign finance investigation, he said he would continue "to engage in the important cultural and political battles of our day."

Who knew that would include a campaign to squash liberal "Dancing With the Stars" contestants -- like Jerry Springer.

Shortly before the show debuted, DeLay sent out a blast e-mail, asking his supporters to vote for Evans on the dancing competition series because she had been a strong supporter of the Republican Party and "represents good American values in the media" while "ultra liberal talk show host Jerry Springer" does not.

"We need to send a message to Hollywood and the media that smut has no place on television," DeLay said.

Ironically, at the time, there was some speculation DeLay's endorsement of Evans had something to do with her husband...

I'm SHOCKED! A hypocritcal Republican exposed as an over-sexed, abusive jerk? Unheard of.
