War on Wehby continues; new police report leaked
The hard left Oregonian newspaper is reporting on another leaked poilice report involving probable GOP Senate nominee Monica Wehby.
This one has to do with a difficult divorce Wehby went through in 2007. Her husband at the time claims that Wehby was guilty of "on-going harassment" and that she got physical with him on several occassions.
Wehby says she has documented proof, including doctor's reports, that her husband physically abused her.
Jim Grant, Wehby's ex-husband, accused Wehby of slapping him with a pad of paper during a verbal dispute, according to a Portland police report from Dec. 16, 2007.
"Jim said they are currently in a divorce situation and is tired of the ongoing harassment by his wife," the police report said. "Jim said over the last year Monica has pulled his hair, slapped him and thrown items at him. Jim said he had been violent with her in the past approximately three years or so ago."
Wehby denied touching him with the pad of paper, according to the report. She told police that Grant had been physical with her in the past and that she had documented it with her doctors, but did not report it to police.
Grant did not return messages seeking comment. Wehby, in a statement Monday evening, said she was "deeply saddened" by the release of the reports, calling her divorce a "very trying time for me and my family."
In a Feb. 10 interview with The Oregonian, Wehby was asked if there were any major issues from her divorce that opponents might dig up.
"No, we live four houses apart," Wehby said. "And we're good friends."
This is the second police report on Wehby to surface in the past few days. On Friday, Wehby was faced with questions about a report in which her former boyfriend, Andrew Miller, called police alleging that she was harassing him and his employees. Miller said on Friday that he regretted calling 911 on Wehby and supports her campaign.
Funny how these men who have accused Wehby of "harassment" end up being friends with her, or supporting her campaign.
It only goes to show why relying on a police report when they are called to the scene of a domestic dispute where the couple is breaking up or divorcing, is foolish. The raw emotions of the moment are not an indication of anything in one's personality but rather reflect the bitter dregs of a relationship gone bad.
That hasn't stopped the Oregonian from fanning the flames of this issue:
The 2007 report said the couple's four children were asleep upstairs at the time in their Southwest Portland home. Wehby's mother was also asleep in the house, the report said.
The couple had been at a Christmas party earlier, where Wehby had "a few drinks," the police report said. Grant did not drink, he told police.
One of the officers saw "a slight red dot" on Grant's right cheek, the report said, though it might have been a zit.
Or he might have cut himself shaving, or run into a door, or gotten a bug bite -- I like the idea it was a zit. It makes the Oregonian look ridiculous for publishing this tripe.
The paper says it got the police report via a public records request. You just can't ask for all police reports involving Wehby. The request must be very specific. That means someone put a bug in the ear of the Oregonian regarding the time and date of the police report.
This thing stinks to high heaven of Democratic shenanigans. They must be terrified of Wehby's challenge to incumbent Senator Jeff Merkley to try so hard to smear her on the even of the GOP primary.
