He Did Not Have Sex with that Woman
Benton County's own favorite son and former United States Senator Tim Hutchinson says he and Randi Fredholm, formerly a young member of his staff and now his wife, were not canoodling while she was on the public payroll and he was still married to his former wife, State Representative Donna Hutchinson (R-Bella Vista). We're sure glad he cleared that up and put an end to all those unfounded rumors that they were shacking up for several years in a steamy little love nest on Capitol Hill.
Senator Hutchinson voted to convict President Bill Clinton for fibbing about his relationship with Monica Lewinsk during the same time that everyone figured Ol' Tim was sneaking back to the apartment after a hard day and getting randy. He won a Diddly Award for his hypocrisy in 2000. George Bush and John Boozman stood firmly by Tim and Randi even when they were a joke to the gossip mongers and everyone else during the losing 2002 re-election campaign.
Now the self-righteous former Senator is having to answer questions about his own private life, and he doesn't appreciate it very much. He can be thankful that he wasn't under oath when asked about his alleged affair that led to the breakup of his marriage, his definition of family values, and his alleged involvement with another woman who was not his wife.
