Sad news for the Dann family:
The wife of former Attorney General Marc Dann, who admitted an extramarital affair while he was in office, has filed for divorce.
Alyssa Lenhoff, who married Dann on Aug. 30, 1987, filed divorce papers Thursday in Trumbull County Domestic Relations Court.
“After many months of living apart, Marc and I have decided it is in everyone’s best interests to make our separation permanent,” Lenhoff wrote in a prepared statement Thursday to The Vindicator.
Dann declined to comment Thursday in an e-mail to the newspaper.
The divorce filing comes as the two face an investigation into potential criminal charges during Dann’s tenure of less than 17 months as attorney general.
The statute of limitations on any misdemeanor crimes against the two expires May 14, two years after Dann resigned as attorney general.
The two, who live in Liberty, will share custody of their 15-year-old daughter, according to Lenhoff’s court filing. Their 18-year-old son will graduate from high school in June and is “considered an emancipated, self-serving adult for purposes of this litigation,” according to the filing.
“Differences have arisen between the parties, making them incompatible, one with the other, which has made the continuation of their marital relationship unendurable,” Lenhoff’s court filing reads.
In her prepared statement, Lenhoff wrote: “Marc and I intend to remain cooperative in order to serve the best interests of our wonderful children. Our children remain the top priority of both of our lives. During this extremely personal chapter of my often-public life, I respectfully request that everyone appreciate my family’s need for privacy and continued healing.”
The scheduler Dann had the affair with, Jessica Utovich was transferred to a new department after I posted about their affair… And the rumor is that Marc had to admit to the affair the day I posted.
Dann was always an out-of-shape loser and simply couldn’t resist the urge to use the power of his office for his own gratification. And while Democrats were often quick to defend him, by the time details came out about his condo love shack and the types of criminals he surrounded himself with in his office, Democrats were ready to throw him off of Rhodes Tower.
I wonder if this in preparation for Dann potentially facing prison time? And what ever happened to the serious allegations of drug use? I guess we will find out soon enough.
