First Come Police, Then Comes Marriage

From Times Wire Reports

Colorado's House speaker plans to leave politics for good next year, thanks to term limits, and marry the woman who got a restraining order against him in May.

Doug Dean, 40, said his decision to wed lobbyist Gloria Sanak had nothing to do with a domestic violence incident involving her.

On May 10, the Colorado Springs Republican used a screwdriver to enter the house the couple shared; Sanak had changed the locks.

Despite calling 911, Sanak insisted that no crime was committed. Sanak got a restraining order but later asked a judge to withdraw it. Dean has been cleared of any wrongdoing.
