Former Missouri House Speaker Rod Jetton is facing assault charges for allegedly beating the shit out of his mistress while having sex. A female mistress.
The Scott County court clerk confirms that a felony complaint has been filed against republican Rod Jetton, who “recklessly caused serious physical injury” by hitting his inamorata on the head and “choking her resulting in unconsciousness and the loss of the function of part of her body.”
The affidavit claims the assault occurred during the night and into the morning of Nov. 16. It says Jetton and the victim agreed on a “safe word” “to use as a stop word during intercourse.”Though, as Wonkette points out, a “safe word” is hard to utter when you’re being CHOKED TO DEATH.
Bonus: Jetton, who has filed for divorce from his wife, has three children and “attends Methodist church regularly.”
