Former state Auditor Adam Edelen and his wife Melissa have reconciled after the pair nearly split last year.

Melissa Edelen filed for divorce in Fayette Circuit Court Oct. 2, saying their “marriage is irretrievably broken,” Pure Politics reported in November.

The couple are back together a family spokesperson told Pure Politics this week.

“Adam and Melissa Edelen have reconciled and they thank everybody for the support they have received,” the spokesperson said.

The two have been married since November of 2012, the second marriage for both.

    Adam Edelen is one of the 122 “Democratic” Party felons who rigged and stole the 2015 “Democratic” gubernatorial primary from me and who have been covering it up ever since. I’ll never stop trying to get these 122 corrupt, democracy-hating “Democrats” indicted, tried, and convicted of felony election fraud in 2015 and again this year.

    Geoff Young (D): Kentucky “Democratic” Party Can’t Stop Rigging Primaries

    Please contact U.S. Attorney Robert M. Duncan, Jr. at the Lexington Main Phone Number: (859) 233-2661 – and leave a message asking him to indict 122 powerful “Democrats” for ongoing election fraud. He has the authority to do it, based on the information I mailed to him. If the month of April goes by with no indictments, I am going to demand the immediate arrest of these 122 crooked “Democrats” by federal marshals.

    Media Release – For Immediate Release – March 30, 2018 – Lexington, KY

    On 3/22/18, the Kentucky “Democratic” Party and/or the “Democratic” Woman’s Club of Kentucky called the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office to send an officer to remove me from the club’s annual meeting. The location was the “Democratic” Party Headquarters building on Democrat Drive.

    During a break in the meeting, Deputy Sheriff James Stepp walked up to me. I was sitting at a table in the back of the room minding my own business. He asked me to come outside, and our conversation is summarized on pp. 25-27 of the following document, which I mailed to U.S. Attorney Rob Duncan yesterday (March 29, 2018):

    Young also has a federal lawsuit pending against the KDP and FCDP for election fraud, which is now before the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati. Young stated: “This criminal conspiracy has been continuing to violate my freedom of speech, the KDP Bylaws, and Kentucky election laws, even while my civil lawsuit is still pending against them. They don’t seem to pay any attention to election fraud, the rights of Democratic voters to participate in fair elections, or the rule of law.”

    Mr. Young, this post may be your low point. Making a political point in a story related to family reconciliation gives us pause to consider your suitability for public conversation, let alone holding public office. There are standards of decency that we should all universally embrace, and we encourage you to set an example of decency by using wise judgement on when and where to post your political entreaties.

    While we are no fans of Mr. Edelen in the political realm, we certainly celebrate the reconciliation of his marriage and the reunification of his family. And we celebrate the closing of what is surely a very painful period in the lives of Mr. Edelen and his wife.

    Believe it or not, Mr. Young, there are things more important than politics and even more important than you.

What do you have to say?
