Joe Wilson’s Wife Roxanne Has Swine Flu

sROXANNE-WILSON-largeCNN—Rep. Joe Wilson’s wife Roxanne has been diagnosed with swine flu, the congressman’s office confirmed to CNN on Thursday.

The South Carolina Republican who gained instant notoriety in September for shouting “You lie!” at the president told The Hill newspaper on Thursday that he plans to keep his distance from his wife when he returns home this weekend.

Wilson said he plans to get the H1N1 vaccination soon, but only after “the majority of the American people” receive it.
