Another Casualty Of Susan Brock's Infidelity: Maricopa County Supervisor Fulton Brock Will Not Become Chairman Of The Board Of Supervisors

Buried in the avalanche of publicity over the shooting of Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is another development in the story about Susan Brock, who was first arrested back in October 2010 and has been charged with 15 different counts relating to sexual offenses against a teenage boy. One of the casualties has been her husband Fulton Brock. His political ambitions have been temporarily blunted. All previous posts on this case are available HERE, with the most recent post appearing first.

Fulton Brock was slated to become the next chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors. But on January 4th, 2011, Fulton Brock announced that he was withdrawing his name as a contender in order to focus on family matters. "Serving as chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors is not more important than serving as a father for my daughters who need me and my attention right now," explained Brock. He has recommended his colleague, Andy Kunasek, for the position.

Fulton Brock will remain a member of the Board of Supervisors, however. He has initiated divorce proceedings against Susan.

The reference to his daughters not only reflects the fact that their mother, being in jail, is not available to care for them, but also the fact that his oldest daughter, 21-year-old Rachel Brock, also got caught up in the scandal. Rachel has been accused of molesting the same boy, but was released on her own recognizance without being charged because the Pinal County Attorney's Office, which is handling the case, requested more information. If the case is pursued against Rachel Brock, she will be rearrested.
