Richard Mellon Scaife, billionaire bankroller of conservative crusades, spent heavily to expose Bill Clinton’s “Troopergate" misbehavior. Now Scaife’s divorce from his second wife, Ritchie, is providing another unsavory saga…adultery! addiction! assault! dognapping!?!
I used to joke that there is no vast right wing conspiracy, but there is Richard Mellon Scaife. I’ve also referred to him as the conservative Keyser Söze.
