By now any McHenry County lawyer with an internet connection has read the story about Maureen McIntyre’s divorce from her husband Raymond X. Henehan.
The went to law school together, fell in love and got married.
Henehan got into financial trouble, which led to his being disbarred.
To avoid financial disaster, it appears they divorced with McIntyre getting their Barrington Hills home and other assets. Henehan got the Cary law office, which went to settle debts…partially settle debts, that is.
The two still live together, according to the Chicago Sun-Times article by Tim Novak and Chris Fusco.
The article goes into Henehan’s mother’s running in the 1974 Democratic Party primary election against Glencoe independent Democrat Harold Katz. Katz won.
It is not hard to imagine that forces aligned with the first Mayor Richard Daley put her up to it. At the time, the article says, his mother worked for the Cook County Sheriff’s Department.
And his father worked for the Cook County Highway Department.
The Sun-Times did the story because McIntyre has been selected to try the “heater” case of Richard J. Vanecko, former Mayor Richard M. Daley’s nephew.
