Israel blamed for Dodgers owners’ divorce


The details emerging in the divorce filings of Frank and Jamie McCourt seem to have been cut and pasted from a soap opera script. Why else would TMZ be all over this one? I can assure you, it has nothing to do with what the divorce could mean for the future of the Dodgers.

Among the accusations from Frank’s lawyers: That Jamie was having an affair with her personal assistant, who had been the Dodgers “director of protocol.” You’d probably already heard that. But what about Israel’s role in the whole mess?

The documents filed by the team accuse Jamie McCourt of taking a trip with her bodyguard in early July to Israel on team business, but then heading to France for 2 1/2 weeks and billing the Dodgers for the trip.

That unholy escapade looks a lot like the time McCourt spent in the Holy Land for the Maccabiah Games, at which she threw out the first pitch.
