McCain’s first marriage is in the news now, partly because John Edward’s infidelities (and how conservatives have condemned him) have brought up the fact that McCain cheated on his first wife and then lied about it repeatedly.
But now there is a more interesting twist. Even though McCain claims that his divorce was amicable, it turns out that there was not one, but two lawsuits between the McCains and his first wife. Both lawsuits were settled out of court, but as the electoral-vote site points out, “as a rule, in amicable divorces, the families don’t sue each other.”
But the bigger question is whether it is worse that McCain had a slightly messy divorce, or that he is old enough that he can’t remember a lawsuit or two that he was involved in?
