During the Clinton administration the FBI Director was William Sessions. He had, to put it politely, a domineering wife. Her headstrong and lavish behavior eventually contributed along with Sessions own failings to his early dismissal as Director. An old Washington Post article on this story used a fancy word for "whipped". It was a multi-syllable word I had never heard of. I have not seen this word again, but it was a real word and not profane. Anybody know the term I am thinking of?
Go ahead and lay the best punch lines you can on me in response to this question, but I also hope someone comes up with the real term.
