Former Sen. Bob Packwood, driven from office in three years ago by a sex scandal, has married his former chief of staff, Elaine Franklin.
The couple was married Tuesday night, and then left for England to spend time with Ms. Franklin's family, according to friends.
"They are going to London. Her mom has not met him," said Deanna Smith, Oregon GOP chairwoman and a friend of Ms. Franklin. "It will be interesting for her relatives to meet him."
