Who Is Megan Madden Rodham? New Details On Tony Rodham's Wife

Hillary Clinton's youngest brother Tony Rodham has died at age 65. He leaves behind his wife Megan Madden Rodham and three children. Hillary posted a heartfelt note about her brother on Twitter, saying: "We lost my brother Tony last night. It’s hard to find words, my mind is flooded with memories of him today. When he walked into a room he’d light it up with laughter. He was kind, generous, & a wonderful husband to Megan & father to Zach, Simon, & Fiona. We’ll miss him very much." Who is Megan Madden Rodham?

5. She stood by Tony during the Ashley Madison scandal

Megan prefers to stay out of the spotlight but back in 2015 she spoke to The Daily Mail when news that Tony Rodham had an Ashley Madison account leaked. Ashley Madison is a dating site for married people that uses the tag line: "Life is short. Have an affair." Megan stood by her man, saying: “I know everything about Tony and everything he does online. I know all his passwords…I’m fine with it. He is not the sort of man who would take it any further. He is a good man, a good father and a good husband. You can quote me on that.” She went on to say that everything was great with them.
