[IL] "Personal Matter" - Senator Schmidt's husband called police to home.
Illinois State Senator Suzanne "Suzi" Schmidt's husband called police during a "domestic incident" with her last week. Lake County Sheriff's responded. "At approximately 6 p.m., sheriff’s deputies were summoned by [Schmidt's husband] Robert to the Schmidt residence, where they took statements from both Suzanne and Robert regarding a verbal argument that resulted in this domestic call out." Legislative aide Lauren Fleming told the Chicago Tribune that the incident was a "personal matter."
What happened that lifted the words to the level that police should come? A bad choice or something more concerning? Something more dangerous would make it a public matter. Praying for them both.
