Prosecutors have dropped kidnapping and rape charges against a former San Diego Tea Party spokesman after the alleged victim recanted her story.

Michael Kobulnicky, 54, was arrested earlier this month and accused of sexually assaulting a 56-year-old woman he allegedly picked up in his car. According to San Diego Fox affiliate KSWB-TV, the alleged victim appeared at a bail hearing Monday and told the judge Kobulnicky was not the man who assaulted her.

On Wednesday, she recanted her story to prosecutors and said she was never kidnapped or raped.

Liberal ploy to attempt to destroy a Tea Party bigwig?

The accusation made front page news. I kind of doubt this recantation will receive similar and equal coverage

If I recall, the founders of San Diego’s Tea Party rallies didn’t even know who this “spokesman” was.

Another citizen, convicted by some without facts, based solely on his politics.

She is a beast, isn’t she. If I were on the jury I’d have a hard time getting my head around the allegation that someone raped her.

Read the story. The guy had consensual sex with this hag. That gave the cops the physical evidence to collaborate her story. The mind numbing thing is he was engaged and ready to get married. The fiancee is still with him.

He brought this on himself.

From the article: “According to KSWB, Kobulnicky’s attorneys had said that their client admitted picking up the woman, then having consensual sex with her on Fiesta Island.”

Seems odd that source is KSWB instead of K’s attys.

Once again the Left steps on a rake in the tall grass and once again the handle flies up to hit them in the face.
