We probably won't see any comment from Yankee on this one. Clark is a Republican. Have to give him credit for countering the stereotype though. He did it for sex, not money.

Ah he did it for the sex not the money, did the secret service try using that same story?

Man, for that kind of grief, he should have held out for a real affair.

Nice to see a heart balm tort case put to good use. Personally, I am glad we still have them in NC.

@1 Like John Edwards - - a Democrat also from North Carolina - - - David Clark, a Republican from North Carolina, appears to have a weakness for the ladies.

Unlike Edwards, who was elected to the United States Senate, Clark never make it through the primary when he ran for District Attorney;

Obviously, Republican primary voters did their job in keeping this fellow out of public office. Democrat primary voters can't make the same claim.

As usual, your conclusion is utterly specious. In what way did Republican primary voters "do their job when, in that 2010 GOP primary race, the incumbent received 50% of the vote to Clark’s 49%where only 200 votes determined the outcome. Once again, your ignorance of the facts has hoisted you upon your own petard.
