Rep. Sweeney today came out and announced that he "loves his wife and loves his children." The congressman did this in response to the likelihood that he actually beat his wife and that the state troopers came to his house Dec 2, 2005 in response to his wife's call to 911. His children are from his first marriage that ended in divorce in 1998 the wife that he alleged beat up in 2005 is Gaia Sweeney whom the congressman married a couple of years ago.
In the years in between the two marriages John Sweeney had long-term sexual relationship with his district office manager and Member of Saratoga County Board of Supervisor Anita Daly. It did not stop John Sweeney to pursue a relationship with Mrs. Daly even though she was still married. The Congressman's opposition to gay marriage while destroying his and other's marriages is one of many examples of the hypocrisy that John Sweeney is drowning in.
