Chris Simcox: Broke and Demanding Spousal Support from Estranged Wife

How the not-so-mighty have fallen. According to a recent filing in his pending divorce, former minuteman leader and one-time dark horse U.S. Senate candidate Chris Simcox claims he's eking by on $1,000 a month, and he wants his estranged wife Alena Simcox to pay him "spousal maintenance" in the amount of $1,500 for a full 24 months, a nice $36K.

Simcox complains that the $1,075 per month in child support asked of him is too much, and he thinks Alena should shoulder 50 percent of all he owes, including a $200,000 debt from his failed Senate bid.

"These debts were all incurred during the parties' marriage and benefited the community," states the October 28 filing. "The community had an especially high interest in Husband's senatorial campaign. Wife supported Husband's decision to run for the Senate and Husband's victory would have greatly benefited the community financially and in other meaningful ways."

Simcox wants $1,500 a month in spousal support from his estranged wife

"Husband's victory"? Um, yeah, right. Simcox was the first to challenge pseudo-maverick U.S. Senator John McCain in the Republican primary, but he polled in the single digits. He eventually dropped out, lent his endorsement to radio lip-flapper J.D. Hayworth, and copped a job from Hayworth as an advisor.

In an affidavit of financial information to the court, Simcox reveals that Hayworth's campaign was paying him $3,500 a month, but Simcox only got to work for Hayworth as a consultant from March 1, 2010 to April 16, 2010. The reason he left the job? "Wife and boyfriend got me fired," states Simcox.

A list of Simcox's debts: He wants Alena to pick up half the tab

See, on April 16, a Maricopa County court commissioner granted Simcox's wife's petition for an order of protection, keeping Simcox 200 feet away from Alena and their two children. Alena alleged that Simcox drank heavily, pointed a gun at her, and threatened to kill his family and any police who responded to the incident.

Simcox denies the allegations, but after I broke it in June, the rest of the media picked up the story, and Simcox insists this has prevented him from obtaining meaningful employment.

"Prior to the onset of these proceedings," Simcox's filing relates, "Father was able to earn a modest living working on political campaigns and as a political consultant. However, the serious, yet unfounded, allegations made against Father by Mother in these proceedings have resulted in extremely negative press for Father and caused Father to lose his job with the J.D. Hayworth Senatorial Campaign."

Thing is, there was no press until long after Simcox had been cut loose by the Hayworth camp. 

After Alena's allegations made the wire, Simcox's blood enemy, minuteman and bounty hunter Stacey O'Connell, issued a "wanted poster" to the press for Simcox. O'Connell has denied to me that he's had any sort of romantic relationship with Simcox's wife.

Alena, who is claiming spousal abuse, is the beneficiary of a trust with a big fat bank account, and Simcox apparently wants a piece of it. More recently, Simcox has been cashing checks from a Fountain Hills business called "Advanced Energy Saving Systems" for "labor" and "driving."

One of the witnesses Simcox wants to call for the family court trial scheduled for February 28, 2011 is Carmen Mercer, to whom Simcox relinquished control of the now defunct Minuteman Civil Defense Corps when he decided to run for Senate.

Simcox's life has always resembled a white-trash reality show. According to a 2005 report by the Southern Poverty Law Center, Simcox's two ex-wives have claimed erratic behavior, violent outbursts, and other weirdness on Simcox's part. 

Still, Simcox was a nativist hero for many years for his minuteman activism, including the so-called Minuteman Project.

Governors and congressmen embraced him. The public regarded him as the face of the minuteman movement, despite the fact that Simcox's organization was rent by internal strife, and claims of financial mismanagement.

He's still quoted from time to time in the press on immigration issues, but without an organization or a platform or a candidacy, there seems little reason to take seriously this one-time nativist icon turned laborer/driver. The "Little Prince" is prince no more.

Id like to see the financial reports that state that Simcox contributed monies to his new family during their 5 year marriage. He made a salary from Deiner Associates/MCDC/Declaration Alliance during his days as 'head minuteman douchbag', Id like to see the bank statements that show he actually turned that salary into his families bank account. He never did. It went elsewhere, but where exactly?

He also sold his life story to HBO for $25k back in 2006.....that money never went into the Simcox family account either.....and nobody knows where that money was stashed except the douchbag himself. Self proclaimed national leader gets 25K for his life story......talk about HBO getting a smokin deal. Simcox should have waited a few years to make that deal....let his life get really fucked up and the story worth a lot more. When HBO finally decides to do something with the story......they will likely go to Alena Simcox for the details, and Ill bet it will cost them a pretty new penny for her version, called the truth.

And then of course Id like for Simcox to submit to the court all the income and expenditures he made under his personal business "Secured Borders". Thats the company that Hayworth paid Simcox while he worked as Hayworths 'immigration' advisor for 6 weeks. And Simcox was paid by other persons and groups over the past few years to Secured Borders.....but that money never made its way into the families personal banking accounts.

What exactly did Mr Simcox contribute to his new family for 5 years? The family had 2 cars. The Buick (wifes car) was sold to Simcoxs pal for less than what was owed to the bank earlier this year, right before the seperation occured.....leaving one family car...which was the Jeep Simcox drives around in. Then when wife filed the Order of Protection, and then the divorce, Simcox took off in the family Jeep....leaving wife stranded with his 2 girls, and her young son. What a stand-up guy! And to top that, he managed to drain the personal bank account of wife, and make a run to hide out in Cochise County, and then off to California while some bounty hunter was looking for him to have him served......run like the wind he did indeed! Looks like HBO is getting their monies worth this year alone!

Will Simcoxs adult child who he attempted to sexually assualt, allegedly....show up at the divorce trial? Will his exwife #2 Kim show up and testify to her personal experience with him and why she got full custody of their child? Will the judge take into account how he lacks paying current child support, and how a previos judge earlier this year provided a protection order against him stating 'likley that domestic violence has occured'? Will the judge look at the lack of financial support this 'man' provided for his family in 5 years of marriage and see him for the bum he really is? And what will an upcoming court ordered mental exam of Chris Simcox state? Will Mr Simcox yet again claim that Alena Simcox got her black-eyes last year from giving some guy a blow-job? Insanity.........HBO, man did you guys get the deal of a lifetime.

If you want to learn more about Mr Simcoxs insane statements to the court, you too can order the CD version directly from the courts! Meanwhile, get out the popcorn......lets see if Simcox is smart enough to 'settle' prior to his divorce trial! But my magic 8-ball says, 'Doubtful'.

$200K for his campaign debt? Bullshit. Lemons, please contact the agency that maintains detailed copies of campaign finance reports, and get a copy of his detailed debt report. Lets take a close look at who he claims to owe money to. I bet they are the same companies that Minuteman CDC paid all of their monies to. Remember, he didnt enter this campaign against McCain to win, he entered this race to make money.....beleive it. Example: Alan Keyes.......he owns Declaration Alliance, who in turn owns MCDC. Think Keyes ran for president mulitiple times to win or to raise money? And Simcox learned this scheme from Keyes, and they are business partners under Declaration Alliance and now the defunct MCDC.

Anyhow get a copy of his debt report from the Federal Campaign Finance people......there is a major story in that document alone. You'll understand more about it if you understand the motive, the players etc of the Minuteman Fence Project scheme.

And the Simcoxs' need to be probed a lot harder on this claim by CS that she had an affair with the bounty hunter. Simcox is making a lot of claims, lets see how he intends on backing that one up. Maybe, just maybe, Alena is ready to chat with you. If not, call Simcox after 9pm on any given night when hes three fingers deep into a bottle of his favorite whiskey, he will certainly talk.

One would think that if he was so motivated Chris Simcox could get off his nalgas and take one of the following jobs that are traditionally done by border crossers:

RooferAgricultural workerHotel housekeeperNannyConstruction WorkerMeat cutter

On second thought, forget it - he couldn't hack working hard at low wages...

What a douchbag. The prick is living in a apartment paid for by yet another female, so is his lawsuit against his soon-to-be-ex-wife. His old newspaper, paid for by a woman and given to him, so is the Jeep hes driving, and so was the truck he used to drive....this mother fucker couldnt pay for his own dinner much less his own life. If it werent for the women he dupes in his life, hed be living in a cardboard box in LA. The prick hasnt once in the course of this divorce....asked to see his 2 children, and has barely made an effort to pay child support. Hes too busy writing on his Facebook page about how he has found Jesus, politics and still slamming others.....way too busy to find a job.

Guess that bounty hunter dude was right.......he fucked Simcoxs life so bad he cant even land a job in this state.

Im thinking his outragous claims of his wife sleeping with this other guy, is going to land him a nice libel-slander lawsuit soon. Its gonna get real ugly......just a guess though. Too bad the prick doesnt own a fucking thing.

This is too funny - I'm glad the wife opened her eyes and left his ass. Yeah, I suppose he's a hot pick for any gal out there.. ha ha ha. There's always Anna Gaines, her last husband was a drunk 18 years younger than her.

I'm confused... where are all of his nativist thug friends now? Surely Rusty Childress can find something for poor Mr. Simcox. Perhaps J.T. Ready will let him spoon while they couch surf. And why hasn't Governor Brewer helped him up? Surely Wilcox knows where those headless corpses are in the desert.

If anyone had any outstanding doubts as to the masculinity of nativists, look no further than Simcox.

Excellent story Stephen. And what about the $100's of thousands of dollars he scammed from his followers?

Today Chris Simcox, tomorrow ALIPAC's Willy Gheen!

From a man's perspective this kind of 'guy' makes me ill. What has happened to men who actually felt an obligation to their children and don't rely on the purse strings of their wife or ex-wife. If you're having trouble with finances, Chris, get yourself a second job. I just read something about the roofing industry needing skilled workers. Maybe go out and get a blister on your velveteen hands for the first time in your life, weenie.

Chris Simcox is to the AZ political establishment what the underwear bomber is to global terrorism; a half-wit patsy manufactured to take the fall in order to achieve a desired end.

Anyone with half a brain knows that neither of them ever had a chance. It sucks to be duped - to be used up and spit out, but when all's said and done, some people deserve it more than others.

Goodness, Fuego. Too much knowledge of what's really going on? You should concentrate more on how you're going to get the Flaccid Fool out of his bind, instead of worrying about the likes of Dennis and others.

That's because they (border crossers) are hard workers - Chrissie, on the other hand, can only make money as a parasite, feeding off hate and paranoia.

Scallions, you have a point about the potential for a libel/slander suit, however you also said he owns nothing and apparently owes tons. That said, there is no real basis for filing a lawsuit. The only outcome might be a judgment that would never be paid. It might be better to just try to collect child support for his kids. But, it sounds like his kids aren't a concern for him. It's frustrating to see how this guy apparently sucks off the teat of society and isn't criticized, yet we have undocumented workers here who work hard, pay all their debts in cash, and are good 'citizens' without citizenship papers, and they are heavily criticized by the likes of pearce, simcox, ready, etc...

Mr. J, I do believe all of the above you have mentioned would (1) take effort on the part of Simcox and (2) further involve the Republicans who no longer need or wish to be involved with Simcox and his ilk. This man makes me sick. Thoroughly sick.
