Rep. Chip Pickering & His Scorned Republican Wife:

Do Republicans wives suffer from an inability to accept and or place blame squarely at where it belongs? In a new twist surrounding the well-known C Street Complex, apparently now suspected to be a Cat House, the wife of Rep. Chip Pickering (R-Miss.), has filed a lawsuit against his alleged mistress, claiming the adulterous relationship ruined their marriage and his political career.

While Leisha Pickering is suing Elizabeth Creekmore Byrd, her husband’s alleged mistress, for alienation of affection, it is more likely that the basis for her lawsuit is for the alienation of the money and lifstyle that comes when your husband has a lucrative career in Washington.

Leisha Pickering says in her lawsuit that Creekmore Byrd originally "met and had a romantic relationship with [Chip] Pickering which ended prior to their college graduation."
The Pickerings were married after that, but Leisha Pickering now says that, unknown to her, "Creekmore Byrd for a number of years met and rekindled her relationship with Pickering." Leisha Pickering charges that the adulterous relationship between her husband and Creekmore Byrd ended both their marriages. Yet she doesn't seem to place any blame at the feet of her falandering husband.

Leisha Pickering alleges that Creekmore Byrd’s "extramarital relationship" with Chip Pickering began again while he was "a United States congressman prior to and while living in the well-known C Street Complex in Washington, D.C."

Chip Pickering, like Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) and South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, has lived in a Christian fellowship home on C Street. Both Ensign and Sanford have been the subjects of adultery scandals in recent weeks. Ensign had an eight-month affair with a former campaign aide, Cindy Hampton, and he resigned his leadership post after admitting to the relationship. Sanford secretly left the United States to met his Argentine mistress, setting off a national furor over his disappearance.

Leisha Pickering also charges that Creekmore Byrd secretly rented a lodge near the Pickering family while they were on a ski vacation and that somehow her husband bares no responsibility for driving his happy ass over to the lodge to visit Mrs. Creekmore. It's as if Mrs.Pickering is saying that if Mrs. Byrd hadn't rented the lodge then Chip wouldn't have been tempted to go over there and dip his pen in her ink.

And she claims that Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour offered Chip Pickering the seat of former Sen. Trent Lott in 2007 but Creekmore Byrd "insisted that if Pickering accepted the position in the Senate that their relationship would not be able to continue." Barbour eventually named then-Rep. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) to Lott’s seat. Once again, her husbands choice to pass up a senate seat in order to maintain his relationship with his mistrees was her fault and therefore, she is responsible for the loss of income that she and her horny husband suffered.

It's sick! - It's just plain old sick a twisted the way that these women rationalize their own failures.

"I still believe it is in the best interest of our five boys if our differences are resolved privately and before the appropriate court and not in the media," Pickering said in a statement, according to The Associated Press. So she wants to do this "privately", but is giving quotes to the God Damn Associated Press! -

Pickering is now a lobbyist for Cellular South, a telecom company owned by Creekmore Byrd’s family. Perhaps Mrs. Pickering should simply come to terms with the fact that she picked the wrong man to be her husband and that if it hadn't been Mrs. Byrd, it would have eventually been someone else.
