Have Hacking Accusations Gone Viral?
Is there something in the water? We reported Thursday a twist in the divorce of GOP lobbyists Juleanna Glover and Jeffrey Weiss: His small consulting firm sued her for allegedly breaking into his e-mail and computer files. Must be going around! Turns out last week Weiss's partner Katherine Friess also sued her estranged husband for allegedly breaking into her e-mail to snoop for intel about their divorce.
Coincidence? Stephen Neal, the attorney for Weiss and Friess's Global Policy Partners in both matters, declined to comment. Meanwhile, Friess's ex, Brent Yessin, says he's GPP's managing partner and that they have no right to sue in the firm's name. Neal called this "patently false."
Glover, a former aide to Dick Cheney known for her glittery media-political parties, declined to comment; a rep for her firm, the Ashcroft Group, called the computer hacking suit "baseless." She and Weiss, with three children, remain mired in a custody dispute. Last year, court records show, he was charged with hitting her in the face. He pleaded guilty under an agreement allowing him to withdraw the plea after counseling; charges were later dismissed. But last month, he was charged with making threatening phone calls to her home. "This will be heard and will be dismissed," Weiss told us.
