State Rep. Bill Hager wants his share from the $1.3 million-sale of the house he owned with his ex-wife in the fancy Patch Reef Estates in Boca Raton.

But for Hager to get a check for $872,000, his cut, he needs the ex’s cooperation.

And, the Republican lawmaker claims in court documents, that’s been hard to come by.

UPDATE: Family values State Rep. Bill Hager marries his mistress!

The ex, Florida Atlantic University nursing professor Beth King, isn’t returning his calls.

So Hager, 65, had a Palm Beach County family court re-open his divorce case and asked that his wife be forced to sign off on the distribution of the proceeds of the sale.

The divorce became final in January after nearly two years of legal wrangling.

Gossip Extra broke the story in 2011: Hager was busted with an exotic-looking chickadee in her early 40s while on business in New York City!

Word got back to the wife in Boca, and the split was consummated as Hager, an attorney specializing in insurance laws, filed for divorce.

A former Boca city councilman whose goals at the state level include restoring the public’s trust in politicians, Hager deemed the marriage “irretrievably broken.”

Hager has not replied to requests for an interview about re-opening the divorce case.

    Ah yes, another God-fearing Republican caught in the sack with someone that’s not his wife. What a bunch of hypocrites. Hope the wife keeps all the money!
