"Reality Show Contestant Backed By DeLay For Her ‘Good American Values’ Quits Show, Files For Divorce"

She even had the support of Tom DeLay, who sent a letter to his supporters asking them to vote for her because she represented “good American values“:

Sara Evans has been a strong supporter of the Republican Party and represents good American values in the media. … One of her opponents on the show is ultra liberal talk show host Jerry Springer. We need to send a message to Hollywood and the media that smut has no place on television by supporting good people like Sara Evans.

Unfortunately for DeLay, Evans herself is ruining his plans:

Country singing star Sara Evans has announced she is quitting the hit ABC show “Dancing with the Stars” and also filing for divorce after 13 years of marriage.

DeLay sure knows how to pick ‘em.

Wonkette has more.
