Mahoney’s Wife Files for Divorce

The wife of Rep. Tim Mahoney (D-Fla.) filed for divorce on Monday, according to the Associated Press.

Terry Mahoney’s actions follow allegations that began trickling out last Monday that detailed the lawmaker’s payment of $121,000 to a former staffer to stay quiet about their soured affair. Last Friday, Mahoney came clean about the affair with the staffer — and another with a local Florida official — but hinted that the procession of former lovers is unlikely to stop at two.

“I don’t know what other women are going to come out,” Mahoney said at a press conference last Friday.

Terry Mahoney appeared at her husband’s side when he held a press conference following the original report of his affair with a former staffer. The wealthy lawmaker — worth at least $3.5 million, according to financial disclosure statements — is in his first term and is now an underdog for re-election.

The House Committee on Standards and Official Conduct announced Friday that it is investigating Mahoney, likely over allegations that he funneled campaign money to the staffer, a charge he denies.
