Husband of Katherine Harris kills himself, police say

(CNN) - The husband of former Florida congresswoman and Secretary of State Katherine Harris was found dead Tuesday morning, apparently by his own hand, Sarasota police and the family's pastor said.

Anders Ebbesen, 68, had been ill, "but it is unknown if that is why he took his own life," Pastor William Hild, of the First Baptist Church of Sarasota, said in a statement released by Sarasota police. "The family is asking for privacy, prayers, thoughts and love from the community."

    It's called Karma. When you do people dirty, like she did, it all comes back to at you. Bush never should have been in the White House in the first place. Think of the lives we would have saved and the strong economy we would have if this liar didn't get involved in the Florida fiasco!
