Ohio Democrat Congressman Charlie Wilson was first elected to Congress in the Democrat wave year of 2006. Prior to that, he had been a long-time member of the Ohio state legislature, first elected to the Ohio House in 1996 and the Ohio Senate in 2004. (One of his four grown sons succeeded him in the legislature and is currently an Ohio State Senator.) He was also married for 27 years to his wife, Clara. The marriage ended in divorce in 1990.
BigGovernment has obtained a trial brief filed by Mrs. Clara Wilson prior to the formal divorce proceedings. The brief was filed November 9th, 1990. The brief is part of the public record and was obtained at Belmont County Court House in Ohio. (Other documents related to the divorce are sealed.) The brief, which is posted below, is shocking and details very serious allegations of spousal abuse. It states that the grounds of divorce are extreme cruelty.

Charles admits that early in the marriage he kicked and struck Plaintiff and accused her of adultery. Clara shall confirm the beatings, slappings, and kicking at the early stage of her marriage to the point where she was afraid to anger the Defendant and instead yielded to his demands
He jumped out of his chair and grabbed her about the neck as he slammed her into the refrigerator. He then grabbed her about both arms, shaking her as they both went over to the kitchen counter which Mrs. Wilson struck with enough force to take the breath out of her. She then fell to the floor, hitting the bottom door to the sink. As she lay there stunned, she couldnt move her head or pick up her arm.
Charles admits grabbing Plaintiff [his then-wife, Clara] by the arms and shaking her. He admits grabbing her around the neck with one hand. He admits bruising Plaintiffs arms and neck.
Clara was taken to the East Ohio Regional Hospital by her son. She initially lied to the emergency room physician that she had fallen down stairs. The physicians observation of a bruise on the back of the right shoulder was inconsistent with a fall down the stairs. He questioned her further and learned of her husbands assault.
Imagine, if you would, that Charlie Wilson was a Republican. Suppose the coverage (or lack thereof) of this race would change?
Charlie is being opposed by a great candidate, Bill Johnson. If you're thinking of making a donation that will make a difference, send Bill Johnson some bucks.
This is truly blockbuster stuff.
It needs sent to every news outlet and of course the campaign!
The creep deserves to be in prison, not Congress.
Oh, but wait, he’s a Democrap congresscritter. SOP.
The amazing stuff is he even admits to some of it at least.
An effective ad would include his admission of guilt and then say....would you want someone with a temper like that representing you?
Just for the record, there IS a Republican Charlie Wilson. And he’s a world apart from this douchebag.
so you're raising the race card
OOPS! Sorry, his name is Joe. Too many late shifts...
Hmmm. What to think about this?
Let’s see, he has a D next to his name.
Nothing to see here!
