Chip Pickering's wife sues alleged mistress

The estranged wife of former Rep. Chip Pickering (R-Miss.), who served 12 years in Congress before retiring in January, has filed a lawsuit against his alleged mistress, claiming their adulterous relationship ruined the Pickerings' marriage and his political career.

 

Leisha Pickering is suing Elizabeth Creekmore Byrd, her husband's alleged mistress, for alienation of affection.

 

The Pickerings filed for divorce last year, but the case is not yet final.

Leisha Pickering says in her lawsuit that Creekmore Byrd originally "met and had a romantic relationship with [Chip] Pickering which ended prior to their college graduation."

 

The Pickerings were married after that, but Leisha Pickering now says that, unknown to her, "Creekmore Byrd for a number of years met and rekindled her relationship with Pickering." Leisha Pickering charges that the adulterous relationship between her husband and Creekmore Byrd ended both their marriages.

 

Leisha Pickering alleges that Creekmore Byrd's "extramarital relationship" with Chip Pickering began again while he was "a United States congressman prior to and while living in the well-known C Street Complex in Washington, D.C."

Chip Pickering, like Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) and South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, has lived in a Christian fellowship home on C Street. Both Ensign and Sanford have been the subjects of adultery scandals in recent weeks. Ensign had an eight-month affair with a former campaign aide, Cindy Hampton, and he resigned his leadership post after admitting to the relationship. Sanford secretly left the United States to met his Argentine mistress, setting off a national furor over his disappearance.

Leisha Pickering also charges that Creekmore Byrd secretly rented a lodge near the Pickering family while they were on a ski vacation in Colorado.

And she claims that Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour offered Chip Pickering the seat of former Sen. Trent Lott in 2007 but Creekmore Byrd "insisted that if Pickering accepted the position in the Senate that their relationship would not be able to continue." Barbour eventually named then-Rep. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) to Lott's seat.

A Barbour spokesman denied that Chip Pickering was ever offered Lott's Senate seat.

 

"The only person the Senate appointment was offered to was Congressman Roger Wicker, who accepted the job," said Buddy Bynum, Barbour's communications director.

Leisha Pickering separated from her husband in June 2008, and Chip Pickering began divorce proceedings against her.

Leisha Pickering is seeking unspecified damages from Creekmore Byrd.

In response to his estranged wife's lawsuit, Chip Pickering said he did not want to engage in a public fight with her over his relationship with Creekmore Byrd.

"I still believe it is in the best interest of our five boys if our differences are resolved privately and before the appropriate court and not in the media," Pickering said in a statement, according to The Associated Press

Infidelity is no respector of persons, party affiliations, or what have you. Your point is? A slam against Christians, Republicans, or both? How petty.

Sad end result of liberal society.

 

Folks only have a problem with perceived hypocrisy... if the guy wasn't a church type, the act of screwing around wouldn't even raise an eyebrow. "It's just sex" would be the comment, I believe.

It is disgusting when Liberal values and behaviors seep into the traditionally decent segments of our society. They must be destroyed/eliminated post haste.

View PostIt's remarkable how so many of you turn a story about hypocritcal phoney conservatives into a commentary on the evils of liberalism.

 

 

Now, see, we thought it was story about human failings that result from a pervasive liberal "your OK, I'm OK" philosophy. Didn't realize it was just a partisan hack job.

I just don't follow. You really blame liberals for the actions of a bunch of phoney's that think mostly with their little heads? What happened to personal responsibility? Does it really have anything to do with liberals or is just more of an disconnected elitist class? Do as I say not as I do? Blaming this on liberals just seems to be glossing over the fact that guys are phoney.

These news stories do tell us something. See, things that are to be expected aren't "news". That's why you don't hear much about *********s having affairs, frequenting bathhouses, cavorting with hookers or even marching in gay parades. That's expected from them.

 

We expect more from Republicans, who are supposed to support VALUES. And we need to get rid of the scum that are supposed to support conservative values but behave like democrats.

I personally don't give a crap who cheats on who, because it is their business not ours.

 

Thats great how the Media finds this really important, but Cap and Trade and the New health Bill, Meh not so much...

 

You guys seem to think this is a big deal, cheating on wives, well it is to the current partners, but to us it should mean nothing.

 

It doesn't reflect how a person does their job, the only effect it has is on you people who find it funny to air out another persons personal life situations.

 

Schmucks!
