Family Values: Ex-teacher Mary Kay Letourneau separates from former student years after sex scandal

Back in 1996, Mary Kay Letourneau, 34, was a married mother of four who taught at a Seattle elementary school. Vili Fualaau was a 12-year-old sixth grade student in her class. They began a sexual and romantic relationship that would lead to nationwide television coverage, multiple jail stints, books about forbidden love, two children and in 2005, a marriage.

Now, Letourneau and her husband Fualaau are making yet another tabloid headline – they are legally separating, according to TMZ.

People magazine, which confirmed the story, quoted an unnamed source close to the couple saying “they’ve been having issues for awhile now. They tried to work through them, but it didn’t work. They’re still committed to being good parents to their children.”

Letourneau’s lawyer, David Gehrke, told People that Fualaau filed for separation.

Letourneau’s relationship with the boy was first exposed after a relative of her husband found out about it and told police. After Letourneau’s first arrest in March 1997, she gave birth to her first child with Fualaau, a daughter named Audrey, while she was out on bail.

She pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree child rape and was sentenced to six months in jail. She was required to undergo sex offender treatment.

She was released from jail after serving three months. Two weeks later, she was caught having sex with Fualaau in a car. She was arrested again and sentenced to seven years for violating the terms of her parole. While in prison she gave birth to Georgia, her second child with Fualaau.  (more...)

What, you ask, could this possibly have to do with "family values"? Explore this rabbit hole. It's far weirder than you can imagine:

Conservatives really need to watch out for right-wingers who want to appropriate and exploit their movement. You're being had.
