PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL (WFLX) - New details Friday morning in the messy divorce case of disgraced South Florida Congressman Tim Mahoney.

Paperwork filed a few days ago by Mahoney's estranged wife list a number of allegations - including mental abuse.

Mahoney's wife, Terry, claims her husband is living in Canada, staying in their condo with his girlfriend.

The congressman's wife also claims her husband is restricting her from money and has taken two vacations since the divorce was filed. She also alleges that her husband "has been mentally abusing" her by filing pleadings suggesting a desire to reconcile, but continuing to see other women.

Just three short months ago, in October, Mahoney expressed a desire to keep the marriage going. "If I want my wife to love me and stay in this marriage, I've got to change, you know? If I don't, then I'll lose the most important thing."

Mahoney's wife is asking for temporary alimony and exclusive use and possession day and night of their home in Palm Beach Gardens.

Mahoney's attorney tells Fox 29, Mahoney is not dissipating their funds and would never leave his wife destitute. He calls the motion filed by the wife "overkill" and says it is just a bunch of excessive claims.
