State Senator John Ford of Tennessee is trying to make use of a law that he authored in order to resist increasing the child support he has to pay. Ford, who in testimony stated that he splits his time with his ex wife and the two children he has with her, and his girlfriend an thier two children. The case for increased child support comes from yet another woman.
MEMPHIS, Tennessee (AP) -- A state lawmaker who heads a committee on child welfare has acknowledged that he lives in separate homes with two women whose children he fathered.

Sen. John Ford testified in a Juvenile Court hearing in November as part of his defense in a child support case over increasing his financial support of another child he fathered with a third woman, The Commercial Appeal newspaper of Memphis reported Sunday.

The Memphis Democrat has tried to make use of a law he authored that keeps court-ordered support lower when a father is financially responsible for other children.

Confused? I sure am, So 3 women, he splits his time with two, and there is a third woman seeking more support. So we are talking six children by 3 women. I hope there was a reasonable amount of time between the kids, but what are the odds. You have to wonder if he thought about this scenario when he authored the bill?. Ironically he head the states child welfare committee.
