Former GOP Chief Beaten by 110-Pound Wife

So THAT's why they call it a playroom

Police in Inverness say former Cook County Republican Chairman Gary Skoien admitted having two prostitutes in his children’s playroom when his wife walked in on him early Sunday morning and began beating him.

But Skoien said the police report is wrong about the prostitutes in his home, the Sun-Times reported Wednesday. He claims he and a friend were talking in the playroom when his wife came down and went off on him.

The allegation is in a domestic battery report from Skoien, 55, against his 36-year-old, 5-foot-4-inch, 110-pound wife.

Skoien says she beat him with her fists and an electric guitar.

“That’s how it was reported to us,” Barrington/Inverness Police Deputy Chief Jerry Libit said.
