The Dennis Smith “Affair”
State health secretary resigns after legal motions filed by accused murderer claiming his wife had affair with Smith.
Dennis Smith has resigned as Gov. Scott Walker’s health secretary shortly after more legal motions were filed in the case of Andew D. Spear, who is charged with the attempted murder of his wife Mary Spear, and who claimed she was having an affair with her old friend Dennis Smith.
Smith was appointed secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services on Jan 3, 2011, and was instrumental in Walker’s efforts to oppose Obamacare.
Smith hired Mary Spear as his department’s chief legal counsel in January 2012 and has known her since they were in grade school in a small town in rural Illinois.
