31. Another one--NY former congressman Randy Kuhl
Edited on Wed Jun-24-09 08:21 PM by BlancheSplanchnik
This article was written during his campaign. 2006 I think??? He did end up getting elected, sadly...a total boo$h rubber stamper.

Around this time, I happened to meet a couple who lived in the same town he did (still does?), who said he was often picked up drunk around town.

Perhaps he got elected because there was a blackout on news about his little character flaws.


The original photocopies of the Kuhl divorce papers may be found at a web site called Blue Lemur.

The basic lowdown:

* In September, 1997, Randy Kuhl was arrested for driving drunk, and then refused to enter counseling for alcoholism.

* Randy Kuhl tried to pick up other women in front of his wife at a bar in Syracuse, New York.

* While hosting a dinner party at their own home, Randy Kuhl "took out two shotguns and threatened to shoot" his wife.

* Randy Kuhl "has been guilty of cruel and inhuman treatment and of such other conduct as may render it unsafe" for his wife to live with him.

Randy Kuhl and his ex-wife has issued a joint statement criticizing whoever released their divorce papers. However, neither Kuhl nor his ex-wife have denied the truth of what was found in those papers. Essentially, Kuhl has admitted that it's all true.

....His campaign web site does not inform visitors of what his positions on various issues are. Instead, the web site is filled with announcements of endorsements by powerful people. Combined with Kuhl's abusive history, his public emphasis of power over substance should serve as a powerful warning to voters in his district. Kuhl seems more interested in what he has the power to get away with than in what he can accomplish with the power that he's given.
