Phoenix Mayor Gordon and wife have “grown apart,” file for divorce

The daily reports that after a 15-year marriage and a year-long separation, Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon, 57, and his wife, Christa Severns, 45,  filed for divorce today.

Last November, in response to an inane Republic puff piece titled Flashy Gordon, (which even included tips on how to achieve his hip and trendy look) we noted that he was sprucing up his former disheveled appearance.

The newspaper likened Gordon to what reporter Jaimee Rose gushingly called “San Francisco’s heartthrob Mayor Gavin Newsom.”

Newsom and Gordon do have one thing in common. Both mayors preside over sanctuary cities —  catering to illegal aliens.

    Can we divorce him too? Christa could have a long line joinng her!!

  2. Ricky Lujan says:

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who Gordon loves to rail against, has over 50 happy years with his wonderful lady.

    Here’s wishing Sancturary City Phil all the worst!

  4. Sally Forth says:

    I’ve grown apart from him, also. I wish he’d move up to San Fran with his chum Gavin.

    This man is on his way to the top. In pursuit of bigger and better things, he can’t be hampered with the liability of a traditional wife. There is too much at stake for His Eminence, so it is only fitting that he reach out for a more cosmopolitan bunny who is more in tune with his global aspirations.
    Make way for Phil the philanderer, er, philanthropist.

    Philly’s been awfully busy these days, heading to Washington,DC to testify against our sheriff, then jetting off to Dubai to cut megadeals. He can’t be hampered by a wife and family. He has places to go, people to see….

    I hope this doesn’t have anything to do with his repeated trips to Thailand on the taxpayer dime. It all started after the massive flooding there several years ago when Phoenix helped them out. However, the trips to Thailand by Phoenix officials never stopped. They might still be occurring. New Times, anyone? :)

    Wow, 15 years and a 9 year old. It’s seems like he’s to busy to concentrate on his own family life. I hope everything works out for them.
