Hell, if this weren't so horrible it would be laughable. Except it isn't funny, not at all, it's shocking.
Tea Party Leader and supposed Christian Michael Kobulnicky was arrested today for the brutal kidnapping and rape of a 56 year old woman.
Don’t tread on me? It is confirmed today that it was Tea Party leader Michael Kobulnicky who was arrested Thursday in San Diego for the alleged brutal kidnapping and rape of a 56 year old woman.
According to East County Magazine, Michael John Kobulnicky is accused of offering a woman a ride on February 25, but instead of taking her home, he drove to secluded island, pulled the victim out of the vehicle, sexually assaulted her, and left her in the sand. San Diego Police Lt. Andra Brown said, “He dragged her out of the car and sexually assaulted her pretty brutally.”
According to his Facebook Page, the divorced father of five was engaged and planning on getting married in April. He also writes, “I am one of the leaders of the San Diego Tea Party and I am the Public Relations representative and leader of our media team. I am also in charge of recruiting new members….Mr. Kobulnicky cherishes our Constitution and values the sacred freedoms we have unlike all other countries! His passion is to educate youth and adults concerning the Constitution and other topics and to motivate people to take action and protect our Constitution, country, and our American way of life.”
Cherishes the Constitution, values sacred freedoms, passion to educate youth and protect the American way of life?.............Excuse me while I gag a little.

Ugh! Gets worse, if possible...
He is charged with rape, kidnapping, and forcible sex with a foreign object. Evidence includes surveillance video shot at a local convenience store shortly before the kidnapping occurred. Kobulnicky is being held without bail pending arraignment on Monday.
4:42 PM PT: Just want to point out that at this stage it is still alleged, not proven.
Apparently the man has a history of domestic assault, but still, this is just alleged at this stage.
