More shocking accusations about people from the "Christian Party of Law and Order".
The San Diego Tea Party Public Relations Spokesman has been charged with rape, kidnapping, and forcible sex with a foreign object. The evidence against him includes convenience store CCTV. He has been held without opportunity of bail.
Michael John Kobulnicky, 50, is the Public Relations spokesperson of the San Diego Tea Party and the former regional director of the Southern California Conservative Party.
He has been arrested for a vicious and violent rape of a 56 year old woman. According to the police, Kobulnicky offered a ride to a woman walking on Linda Vista Road. Instead of taking her home, he drove to Fiesta Island. There, the 205-pound, 6 ft. 3-inch tall man pulled the victim out of the vehicle and sexually assaulted her.
He has pleaded not guilty, with bail set at $500,000. Deputy District Attorney Renee Palermo had asked the judge to set bail at $1 million because she believes the defendant is a danger to the community.
His website was arranging a "Patriot Voices Summit" on behalf of the Tea Party. Sickingly, it asks "What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?"
His currentfacebook campaign is against Red Bull for not being a Christian drink.
Kobulnicky according to his site supposedly supports Christian values, is a father of five sons and is Co-Founder of a charity that supposedly helps young people.
The San Diego Tea Party issued a statement indicating that Kobulnicky took leave the group in January for personal reasons and had not been in touch since then, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. His facebook page puts lie to that story. After announcing his engagement, a Tea Party backer, Karen L Grube wrote, "Make sure you bring her to the Tea Party meeting to say Hello to us all!"
Violence against women is nothing new to Kobulnicky, he was accused of domestic violence in 2008, San Diego Superior Court records indicate.
Our hearts go out to the victim of this horrible crime.
