64 Year Old Republican Family Values: Abuse Your 29 Year Old Mistress!

Rep. Don Sherwood reached a settlement Tuesday with a former mistress who accused him of abuse in a $5.5 million lawsuit, according to his lawyer.

Terms of the settlement between Sherwood, R-Pa., and Cynthia Ore, with whom he acknowledged a five-year affair, will remain confidential, said Paul Clark, a spokesman for Sherwood's attorney, Bobby Burchfield.

"Attorneys for Cynthia Ore and Congressman Don Sherwood announced today that their clients have resolved their differences, and the lawsuit will be dismissed," Clark said, reading from a statement.

Sherwood, 64, and Ore, 29 when the suit was filed in June, do not plan further comment, the statement said.

Ore's attorney, Patrick Regan, did not immediately return a message left at his office Tuesday evening.

The settlement was filed in federal court, Clark said.

Sherwood, a fourth-term congressman, is married with three daughters. He issued a statement this summer apologizing for the affair but denying he physically hurt Ore. He also said she never lived with him, which she had claimed in her lawsuit.

Ore filed suit after it became public that she called police from his Capitol Hill apartment on Sept. 15, 2004. According to the police report, Ore called 911 on her cell phone from the bathroom and reported that Sherwood had "choked her for no apparent reason."

Both parties said he was giving her a back rub, but he said she "jumped up" and ran to the bathroom.
