Yet another affair among the GOP reps that have lived in the cult-like Christian “C Street House” in DC. This time, the wife is suing.
The estranged wife of former Rep. Chip Pickering (R-Miss.), who served 12 years in Congress before retiring in January, has filed a lawsuit against his alleged mistress, claiming their adulterous relationship ruined the Pickerings’ marriage and his political career. Leisha Pickering is suing Elizabeth Creekmore Byrd, her husband’s alleged mistress, for alienation of affection. The Pickerings filed for divorce last year, but the case is not yet final. 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. 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.”
That house sees more action than the Crew Club!
