Love, etc: Rep. Chellie Pingree and financier Donald Sussman wed


Donald Sussman and Chellie Pingree. (Office of Congresswoman Chellie Pingree)

Married: Rep. Chellie Pingree (D-Maine), 56, and hedge-fund founder Donald Sussman, 65, in a quiet home ceremony in North Haven, Maine, attended by their kids. They only announced the nuptials after the fact, at a party for a few hundred friends who thought they were there to celebrate his birthday. (“You’re too early, and you’re too late,” the groom announced, according to a witness. “My birthday is Tuesday, and we got married this morning.”) They met at a party in 2007, during her first run for Congress. Opponents criticized her in 2010 for traveling on his jet — he’s a major Democratic donor in Maine — but ethics cops said the flights were OK since they were engaged.
