re: #312 Obdicut
I think those allegations were included in the sealed portion of their divorce (or child custody) proceedings. Mrs. Ryan later disavowed the allegation and blamed her lawyers. That sometimes happens in heated divorce cases…which is why the records are often sealed.
So, we really don’t know what happened between Mr. and Mrs. Ryan. We do know that the Illinois Republican Party did not want Mr. Ryan as their candidate (even before the divorce records were unsealed) and were eager to find a way to get rid of him. They got their wish and the candidate who took Ryan’s place made a fool of the Illinois GOP.
