A year later, Moore wrote in a column, "No, Allison STILL doesn't have a job, but thanks SO much for asking."
In a statement issued to CNBC in early April, Stephen Moore had said, "Allison Moore and I were married for 19 years and have three wonderful sons whom we have co-parented. Our divorce was settled amicably many years ago and we remain on friendly terms to this day. She is a terrific mother and I hold her in the highest regard."
"Allison, our kids and my current wife would hope that the media would please respect our privacy. I am happy to speak to the media on any matters related to the economy or my views on the Fed," Stephen Moore said at the time.
Allison Moore, in a statement issued to CNBC through Stephen Moore's spokeswoman in early April, said, "Steve Moore and I reconciled through our divorce many years ago and we would hope the media would respect our privacy. We remain on cordial terms."
David Roop, the lawyer who represented Allison Moore in her divorce, declined to comment Tuesday when asked about Stephen Moore's columns.
In his 2003 column, Stephen Moore wrote that "one highlight" of that year was getting his 2-year-old son potty trained by his "brilliant idea of pasting a photo of Hillary Clinton with a bullseye target on the bottom of the potty."
"And ever since then, it's been like Niagara Falls — and with perfect accuracy — every time nature calls."
In her divorce filing, Allison said Moore in 2010 had created two Match.com accounts with the aim of connecting "romantically with other women." The filing said Moore began what was "by his own admission ... a romantic adulterous relationship" with a woman, and that he once said to the Moores' children in front of Allison: "I have two women, and what's really bad is when they fight over you."
Nine years earlier, in a National Review end-of-year column entitled "Some Christmas Jeer," Moore wrote: "Will someone out there please help us get Allison a job? It's not so much that we need her income, but that when she sits at home idly day after day she becomes a compulsive shopper."
But Moore also noted in the same column "that Steve, too, has done his part to nudge the economy along. A few months ago he bought a cherry red Camaro convertible," which his "22-year-old college intern" told him "''screams midlife crisis!'"
"On more than one occasion Steve has been cruising around town with the top down and a gorgeous 20-something blond has pulled up beside him: he looks longingly at her, she gives him a 'come hither look,' and then the mood is spoiled when she sees [one son] drooling in the baby seat and then [the older sons] start making weird faces at her," Moore wrote.
"She sticks her finger in her mouth and zooms off and Steve is left screaming at the kids: 'How many times do I have to tell you tyrants to stay out of sight when I'm hitting on girls?'"
"And then [one son], with a puzzled look on his face says, 'but daddy, we already have a mommy,'" Moore wrote. "And then Steve says, 'Yes, but imagine, just for a moment, how nice it would be if you had a much younger mommy.'"
