Steve Galvin’s campaign for the City Council is over; he just doesn’t know it yet.
In case you are not spending your Saturday reading about Galvin’s misdeeds, here’s what you missed:
As part of its screening process before making its candidate recommendations, the Tampa Bay Times asked Galvin if he has children or if he has ever been sued. Galvin answered “no” to both questions.
Both answers are lies, say the Times.
After a little digging by the newspaper, they discovered Galvin fathered a child in 2004, with a California woman he met online and had a long-distance affair. The woman subsequently sued him for child support two years later. Galvin agreed to pay the woman $243 a month. When confronted with California court papers, Galvin relented, and confessed about both the child and the case.
Galvin’s political consultant has since resigned from the campaign, while Galvin is making the horrible mistake of discussing the scandal in the comments section of the Times‘ website.
Galvin should save himself and his wife any further embarrassment by dropping out of the race before the scandal deepens. Because soon enough an enterprising blogger will find comments made by Galvin’s wife in 2005 about her husband’s affair … comments made on the message board of a website called CheaterNews.com.
Oh wait, I already found them.
“FaithfullyStupid” writes about how boyfriend Steve, whom she describes as a “con artist”, had proposed to her in 2000, “but never honored his proposal.”
Five years later, Steve “declared his adoration and said he wanted to give me a ring.” But when he started dragging his feet on their wedding plans, Galvin “finally admitted to me that he cheated last Nov and Suzanne Rasque was accusing him of being the father of her child.”
Here’s where Pam (who once had the audacity to insult me for carrying my baby’s diaper bag) really turns on the charm…
“She refused to abort it,” writes the future Mrs. Galvin, “but told him she would put it up for adoption. Then when it was too late to get rid of it, she announced she was keeping it. … People like that have no business breeding at all. She is 31 and Stephen is 47. She lives with her father still and works part time. Getting pregnant will now be the perfect excuse for her to continue to be a useless member of society.”
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorn, right?
“(T)his has ruined all my hopes and dreams of the last 5 years and wasted 5 years of my life,” concludes Mrs. Galvin. “I am now awaiting results of my first AIDS test because of Stephen’s a/k/a Lestat (sic) infidelity and Suzy Rasque’s promiscuity.”
What a sweetheart!
