Archie Parnell
Parnell admits ‘inexcusable’ acts

Archie Parnell’s congressional campaign imploded Tuesday as his staff, major supporters and Democratic Party leaders deserted his run after reports that he physically abused his then-wife 40 years ago.

Parnell, who lost a close 5th District special election to Republican Ralph Norman last June, did not deny the abuse, which surfaced in documents from his 1974 divorce. 

He called his long-ago actions “inexcusable, wrong and downright embarrassing,” but he refused to withdraw from the race.
