U.S. Fifth District GOP candidate Chris Fields said the recent disclosure of a temporary restraining order his ex-wife filed against him in 2006 is a further example of dirty tactics that are turning people off politics.
City Pages published the article Thursday, Oct. 4.
“This is the politics of personal destruction,” Fields told Patch on Wednesday.
Fields released a statement (see the PDF with this story) and contacted Patch after he said City Pages interviewed him about the restraining order.
City Pages did not specify where it got the information—but it did publish Fields’ full release, which includes accusations.
Patch will update this story when it receives responses from people Fields mentions in his news release.
Fields said he was never served the temporary restraining order and hadn’t known it existed until City Pages contacted him. He denied that he was ever abusive to his ex-wife and said he still cares about her to this day.
The couple divorced in 2006.
