A married congressman and a congresswoman are reportedly having a secret affair, according to Breitbart News.

News of the affair broke after the Congressman, Rep. Rich McCormick (R-GA), filed for divorce from his wife of 12 years. According to reports, McCormick’s wife — Dr. Debra Miller, an oncologist— accused the GOP lawmaker of having an affair with Rep. Beth Van Duyne (R-TX).


When the Daily Mail reached out to Miller, who had seven children with the GOP lawmaker, asking if the divorce involved an alleged affair her soon-to-be ex-husband may have had with a colleague, she replied, “You should ask Rich [McCormick] and his colleague.”

Miller also texted the Daily Mail, saying I’m sure that he [McCormick] will not be forthcoming.”


According to the Daily Mail, two eyewitnesses say they have seen McCormick and Van Duyne holding hands, with one witnessing it as the pair were leaving votes.

One other Republican also told the outlet that they have seen McCormick and Van Duyne’ holding hands under the table’ at the weekly Republican Study Committee lunch within the last four months. The GOP member also noted that they had observed McCormick placing his arms on the small of her back while both lawmakers were on the House floor.


Another witness told the Daily Mail that they had seen Van Duyne holding on to the arm of McCormick while walking out of the Longworth Office building late at night.

Reports showed that McCormick and his soon-to-be ex-wife have both filed for a restraining order against each other.

A spokesperson from the Georgia Republican lawmaker responded to questions regarding the divorce and the alleged affair, saying that McCormick would like to keep things private.

“Congressman McCormick and Dr. Miller have been separated for quite some time. He has kept that private and will continue to keep his personal life out of the media spotlight,” the spokesperson said in a statement.

McCormick married Miller, his second wife, on August 16, 2011, according to his Facebook account.

Rep. Van Duyne, on the other hand, divorced her former husband in 2102 after 17 years of marriage and two children.
