ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Congressman Austin Scott and his ex-wife accused each other of substance abuse during their 2001 divorce case.
Those records were released Monday, five months after a Democratic blogger sued to unseal the documents.
Scott's ex-wife, Leigh Jordan, accused Scott, a state lawmaker at the time, of erratic behavior.
She said he used alcohol as an escape device and that he was involved with pornography. The documents don't elaborate.
Scott also accused Jordan of abusing alcohol as well as prescription drugs.
A judge granted the couple shared rights to their son. Scott called the divorce a "personal matter" in a statement and declined to comment further. An attorney for Jordan did not return a message seeking comment.
