GOP recall candidate Kim Simac says her ‘spouse swap’ just ‘one of those quirky American stories’

By Tom Kertscher of the Journal Sentinel June 6, 2011

Kim Simac, a “Tea Partier” Republican candidate in one of the recall elections expected this summer, said Monday the fact that her ex-husband married her current husband’s ex-wife is “one of those quirky American stories.”

Over the past week or so, websites have picked up a report by PolitiScoop.com, a liberal “citizen journalism website,” that said Simac “swapped spouses.” The report says she is a hyopcrite because she promotes family values.

Court records show that both Kim Simac — then known as Kim Maillette — and Arthur Simac filed for divorce from their spouses on Dec. 15, 1993, in Vilas County.

Kim Simac said she married Arthur Simac in 1995 and that their ex-spouses married each other sometime later. She said she is not proud that she divorced, but feels fortunate to have married Arthur Simac, as they have helped raise nine children from their previous marriages together.

Simac, founder and president of the Northwoods Patriots tea party group, is challenging state Sen. Jim Holperin (D-Conover).

  1. Sounds like a mountain out of a molehill here and probably says more about her ex and her husband’s ex than it does about her and her husband.

    From a brief perusal of your blog, everything you say or post is worth a huge grain of salt if you revere WEB Dubois, an ardent communist.

    — As an aside relevant to your site, I don’t care for public school or charter schools. We intend on homeschooling. The left’s involvement in the educational system of this nation for the last century has led to much of the problems the public educational system is now having and has had for the last three decades plus with increasing difficulty.

    • Before I vote for a person I like to check them out a little . One place I go is the Wisconsin CCap web site. When I look up Kim Simac , 2 results are found . And when I look up Kim Maillette ( court records show that both Kim Simac — then known as Kim Maillette — and Arthur Simac filed for divorce from their spouses on Dec. 15, 1993, in Vilas County. ) many results are found. Not the past I want to see in a candidate for State Senate.
