Spousal Privilege

From a reader:

Jonah,

Maybe that mafia suggestion from yesterday wasn’t so far off:

From an article on Rosie O’Donnell’s decision to wed her long-time girlfriend:

O’Donnell said she decided to marry Carpenter, a former dancer and marketing director at Nickelodeon, during her recent trial in New York over the now-defunct Rosie magazine.

“We applied for spousal privilege and were denied it by the state. As a result, everything that I said to Kelli, every letter that I wrote her, every e-mail, every correspondence and conversation was entered into the record,” O’Donnell said. “After the trial, I am now and will forever be a total proponent of gay marriage.”
