When Glenn Richardson stepped down as speaker of the Georgia House in a sex scandal with a lobbyist, it was widely denounced as another politician who ran on “family-values” while living la vida loca. Voters of Paulding Country, however, quickly replaced him with another Republican running on family values, Rep. Daniel Stout. Stout, however, may be a bit too close to family: he was divorced in 10 years ago after his wife accused him of having an affair with her mother while she was pregnant with his child.
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.” The local GOP was ecstatic over his election, here.
Here is how he describes himself on his bio:
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.
He left out the business of jumping your mother-in-law during periods of pregnancies. After the scandal became known, Stout insisted that the relationship “stopped short of ‘sex’.” Now that sounds pretty Clintonesque. It is not clear if that means he made it to second or third base with his mother-in-law. It suggests a political sliding scale of what is unacceptable: home run with your mother-in-law, third base with your father-in-law, second base with a niece, or first base with a nun.
Stout added “this humbling experience changed my life dramatically.” “Humbling”? I could think of horrible, disgusting, and other descriptions, but humbling?
