Sorry Daily Kos. Sorry Little Green Troll.
Unlike the #occupy movement… Sexual assault charges were dropped against the supposed tea party “leader” Michael Kobulnicky yesterday. There was no rape, kidnapping and sexual assault. The victim accused the wrong man.
The So Cal Tax Revolt Coalition released a statement, via Lipstick Underground. Kobulnicky is not a member, spokesman or volunteer with the group. But it didn’t matter, Democrats ran with the story anyway.
Yesterday, charges were dropped against Michael John Kobulnicky. The victim identified the wrong man.
Prosecutors have dropped charges against a man accused of sexually assaulting a woman in Fiesta Island.
Michael Kobulnicky, a former San Diego Tea Party spokesperson and Mormon Church leader, had faced charges of kidnapping and sexual assault for a sexual encounter that he said was consensual. Prosecutors dropped all charges Thursday morning.
Kobulnicky was emotional and cried when John Reis, a district attorney, announced that charges were dropped.
He spoke on Thursday after being released, but did not want to talk about the case.
“I just wanted to clear my name,” he said.
Kobulnicky said he lost his job as a result of the incident, and had to cancel his wedding. He said both himself and his fiance “went through hell” during the ordeal.
“The police department went with the best information that we had and the forensic evidence and in a complete investigation we did the best job that we could, and that of course included the arrest of Mr. Kobulnicky,” said San Diego Police Department spokesperson Lt. Andra Brown. “We don’t understand why [the victim] changed her stories, but we do understand the district attorney’s actions.”
The victim of a recent sexual assault spoke in open court Monday claiming the police have arrested the wrong man.

If they really want to find the rapist maybe they should look at the local #occupy camp?
They’d probably have better luck.
