Outgoing House Speaker Glen Casada has asked a judge to relieve him of obligations to pay alimony to his ex-wife, saying he no longer has the income to keep up with his obligations, NewsChannel5 reports. The filing blames the loss of Casada's job with Merck pharmaceuticals, a position he claimed he voluntarily resigned from earlier this year amidst the same scandal that led to him stepping down as House Speaker. "Due to his advanced age and the circumstances of his unemployment, it is highly unlikely that Mr. Casada will be able to secure comparable employment," Casada's attorney Sarah Richter Perky wrote in a motion.
