Joe Morrissey Promises To Marry Teenage Black Baby Mama
Former Del. Joe Morrissey promised Thursday to marry the mother of his latest child, which would cement a relationship that got him tossed into the jail cell that served as his nightly home during the last legislative session.
Via Daily Press:
Morrissey, 57, held a joint press conference with 19-year-old Myrna Pride Thursday to correct, he said, misinformation floating about their relationship and his fitness as a father.
He confirmed that he has four children by four women. Two of the children are adults, one a young child and the latest a two-and-a-half-month old named Chase, he said.
Any talk of him not being involved in his younger children’s lives is false, Morrissey said. With Pride seated next to him and Chase in another room at Morrissey’s office the long-time – and once disbarred – criminal attorney known as “Fightin’ Joe” said the three live together in downtown Richmond.
When Chase cries out at night, it is most often Morrissey who gets up, they said. In the mornings, he wakes first for diaper changes.
Morrissey also re-confirmed his plans to run for the state Senate as an independent, where he hopes to take down Richmond-area state Sen. Rosalyn Dance. Morrissey resigned his House seat twice over the last six months; first in December, when he took an Alford plea on a misdemeanor charge stemming from an accusation that he had sex with Pride before her 18th birthday.
The politician’s young girlfriend denied smashing the senate hopeful before she was of age. Where is Tyga!?
Pride called him “Mr. Morrissey” Wednesday as she denied having sex before she became a legal adult. From the beginning, Morrissey has said explicit pictures law enforcement found on his phone were hacked there. He said Wednesday that the relationship blossomed from friendship to intimacy while Pride worked at his law office, but not before she turned 18.
Morrissey won his resigned seat back during a pre-session special election, but was shunned by colleagues, kicked out of the House Democratic caucus and stripped of all committee assignments. He resigned again in March to make this Senate run, initially as a Democrat. Party officials denied him ballot access after the local registrar declared some 750 signatures he collected for the run invalid, putting him 28 short of the 250 he needed.
Do you think Morrissey will be able to be an effective leader or too busy chopping down teenagers? Hit the flip for more pics of the odd couple next…
