Republican Jim Galley, who is running for Congress as a “pro-traditional family” candidate, was married to two women at the same time, defaulted on his child support payments and has been accused of abuse by one of his ex-wives.Of course this is all the fault of those who want to legalize gay marriage.
The San Diego Union-Tribune discovered the personal history in making public-records checks on Galley, who is making his fourth run for elective office in four years. These checks are part of the newspaper's election reporting process.
Galley married his second wife, Beth, in 1982 when, unbeknownst to her, he was still married to his first wife, Terry. Beth and Galley divorced in 1990 after she sought a restraining order alleging abuse.
The child support was owed to his first wife.

More great Republican family values
Well the hypocrisy of Republicans preaching family values is nothing new, think Newt Gingrich and Rush Limbaugh. But down in San Diego we have a new poster child, Republican Jim Galley. Mr Galley's ideas of "family values" apparently include being married to two women at the same time, spousal abuse and skipping out on child support.
