OKLAHOMA CITY -

A judge has decided to unseal Oklahoma City mayoral candidate Ed Shadid's divorce records Friday morning.

According to the Oklahoma Gazette, those divorce records would reveal Shadid "used cocaine in 2000, and again in 2004." The mayoral candidate also admits he threw a chair against a wall, kicked a hole in a wall, and broke a lamp during a heated argument with his ex-wife.
