Politico's Joe Williams pleads guilty to assaulting ex-wife
Political commentator Joe Williams, who was recently suspended for making controversial remarks about Mitt Romney on MSNBC, has plead guilty to assault charges involving his ex-wife. He will be on probation until the fall. The Daily Mail reports:
It has been revealed that disgraced political commentator Joe Williams pleaded guilty and was convicted of assaulting his ex-wife, author Amy Alexander on May 24 of this year.
The former Politico White House correspondent who lost his job last month for a racial comment aimed at Mitt Romney received a $200 fine and six months probation.
The probation ends on November 24 this year and comes on top of a year long court order against the controversial reporter that compels him to stay away from his two children’s school and to surrender all his firearms.
