Fred Thompson's Wife: Just Who Is She? 

Former Tennessee senator (and water-testing presidential hopeful) Fred Thompson's wife is getting the third-degree from the nation's media.

From The Washington Post: Fred Thompson's "testing the waters" campaign hasn't done itself any favors by being so evasive when it comes to questions about Mrs. Thompson.

Perhaps if the topic weren't so shrouded in mystery, Newsweek magazine wouldn't have created a mini firestorm with its story this week suggesting Jeri Kehn Thompson may have been married before - and possibly never divorced - since her name pops up in public records as Jeri Kehn Alvey, which is the last name of her ex-boyfriend.

"It's unclear exactly when she may have been married or when she may have gotten divorced," the magazine wrote. "When asked directly about it, the campaign would neither confirm nor deny a previous marriage."

Why the secrecy? ...

Why indeed, you may ask. Read the WP report here.
