Former U.S. Rep. Tammy Mallory, D-N.C., said Monday that she would not speak out publicly about the 2016 presidential election after she said in an interview she did not believe her husband was elected president.
Mallory said her husband’s campaign was a distraction from her fight against her own family.
Mallories husband, Tammy Mallories, had been on the House Ethics Committee, the House Oversight Committee and the Senate Judiciary Committee investigating the 2016 election, when he was arrested on a drunken driving charge.
“If we were running for president today, I would not be talking about the election.
I would be talking to you on the issues,” Mallories told CNN’s “New Day” Monday.
He had no chance of winning. “
The truth is, we did not vote.
He had no chance of winning.
We are the victims of a conspiracy.
I am the victim of a fraud.” “
He was a fraud.
I am the victim of a fraud.”
Mallories’ comments came in a new memoir, “I Am Tammy.”
She said she has been a Democrat since the 1960s, and her husband, a lawyer, served as a state senator from North Carolina.
“My husband’s life was full of love and kindness, and I knew the truth, which was that he was not qualified to be president of the United States,” Mallys book says.
Mallies told CNN that she was “not sure” whether she would speak out about her husband again.
“I have my own issues,” she said.
“When we get through it, we will be free.
And I think I will tell you this: I am still going to be a Democrat.”
