She wept openly during the court session, twisting a handkerchief as she listened to the judge chastise the man she divorced in June. "This is a very sad day for me," she said outside the courtroom.

Enid Greene Waldholtz (R-Utah) on Monday said that blind love made her the innocent dupe of a husband who defrauded her family and possibly financed her 1994 campaign with tainted money. Speaking publicly about the scandal for the first time, Waldholtz also apologized, saying that she had been tricked by her estranged husband into filing false campaign reports and income tax returns.
