Monica Wehby on Families & Children
Jim Grant, Wehby's ex-husband, accused Wehby of slapping him with a pad of paper during a verbal dispute, according to a Portland police report from Dec. 16, 2007. "Jim said they are currently in a divorce situation and is tired of the ongoing harassment by his wife," the police report said. "Jim said over the last year Monica has pulled his hair, slapped him and thrown items at him. Jim said he had been violent with her in the past."
Wehby denied touching him with the pad of paper, according to the report. She told police that Grant had been physical with her in the past and that she had documented it with her doctors.
[When asked about] any major issues from her divorce that opponents might dig up, Wehby responded, "No, we live four houses apart. And we're good friends."
Wehby was questioned by a police officer on April 3, 2013. Miller, the wealthy owner of a timber company, had been romantically involved with Wehby but their relationship was ending at that time, they both say now. Wehby was not arrested in the incident.
Miller has helped fund radio and billboard ads slamming one of Wehby's rivals for the Senate nomination, state Rep. James Conger. Miller has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in recent years backing GOP candidates in Oregon.
Wehby said she was unaware that a police report had been filed over the 2013 incident and downplayed the episode. Miller said he now regrets calling the police on Wehby. The couple had dated for about two years, but broke up in 2013. Miller, divorced with 4 children, said they remain friendly.
