Family values at work

We don't know why the NY Times didn't feature this one on its webpage. But we thank a paper reader for noting it.

Country singer Sarah Evans has dropped out of the ABC hit "Dancing with the Stars" because she's filed for divorce from her husband, a currently unemployed Republican fund-raiser and former congressional candidate, Craig Schelske. Said the Times:

In unusually explicit court papers, Ms. Evans accused her husband of adultery with the couple’s former nanny, excessive drinking, soliciting sex via an Internet site and maintaining a library of pornography that included pictures of him having sex with other women.

This (the mister denies all, by the way) is all going to be very sad news for another paragon of virtue, Tom DeLay, who'd been lobbying for Evans in mass e-mails.

Saying that Ms. Evans “represents good American values in the media” and noting that one of her opponents in the competition was “ultra-liberal talk show host Jerry Springer,” Mr. DeLay added: “We need to send a message to Hollywood and the media that smut has no place on television by supporting good people like Sara Evans.”

Oh, and we don't want to forget:

Mr. Schelske, who ran unsuccessfully in 2002 for the Republican nomination for the Fifth Congressional District in Oregon, is also listed online as the executive director of American Destiny, a nonprofit organization that promotes the role of religion in the founding of the United States.
