Oregon’s 5th District isn’t exactly known for having Representatives with happy marriages—in fact rumor has it that the district is cursed! OregonLive noticed that “every person who has represented Oregon's 5th Congressional District has divorced while in office. Democratic Congressman Kurt Schrader is the latest. He and his wife, former state Sen. Martha Schrader, filed for divorce last week. His predecessor, Darlene Hooley, was divorced not long after she took office. The guy before her, Rep. Jim Bunn, divorced as well. And even the first two occupants of 5th District seat, which was created in 1981, also divorced while still in office.
Could the 5th District be cursed?!
