Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor, wife file for divorce

By The Associated Press

— U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor of Arkansas and his wife are divorcing after 20 years of marriage.

The two-term Democratic lawmaker’s wife, Jill, filed for divorce on Friday in Pulaski County court. The two were married on July 4, 1992 and the filing said the two separated in July of this year.

A spokesman for Pryor said the divorce was a mutual decision between the two and asked for privacy. The couple has an 18-year-old son and a 17-year-old daughter.

Pryor was elected to the Senate in 2002 after defeating incumbent Republican Sen. Tim Hutchinson and won re-election without any major party opposition in 2008. Pryor announced earlier this year that he’ll seek re-election in 2014.

She must have gotten tired of living with a Republican.

I don't agree w/ all of Pryor's positions, but this is sad and unfortunate.

I like him because both Reps and Dems don't.

Let's see, he maintains his do-gooder image, shields her and family from the IRS tax evasion investigation, she takes the money to the Caymans and blows him off. Nice! Looks to me like Jill is sensing a change in the wind for the Senator and wants to bolt before the ship sinks. Maybe the "Girls Gone Wild" intern thing was too much.

I just find it ironic that he won election back in 2002 by being the "family values" alternative to his opponent who had just gone through a divorce.
