Republican candidate for governor Stacy George has filed for divorce from his fourth wife.
The former Morgan County commissioner filed divorce papers Monday in his home county. He and Tammy George were married on May 19, 2012. His divorce papers say they have been separated since February 2013 and attempts at reconciliation are futile.
George, a state correctional officer, said Tuesday that he wanted to file before the June 3 Republican primary because he didn't want any voters to think Alabama would have a traditional first lady if he should win.
George says that after four marriages, he knows he's difficult to live with, but he's hopeful he will find the right woman the next time.
He faces incumbent Robert Bentley and Scottsboro businessman Bob Starkey in the GOP primary.
