It seems perfectly timed to do the most damage to him. Things like this are meant less about divorce than the ability to get even. Who knows, who cares. Politics changes people. Even at my level, I see it every day. I’ve changed, for sure. Some for the better, some for the worse. I think I’ve gotten less patient and a bit tougher.
Wouldn’t it have been worse before his re-election?
I’m also suspicious of the timing - anti-repubbie/christian/straight/conservative southern white governor in a white-led osuthern state trending repubbie? Reasons abound for his “destruction” this way..
