State senators husband arrested on suspicion of lewdness toward her

By Gregan Wingert (contact)

Thursday, Oct. 27, 2011 | 6:47 p.m.

The husband of state Sen. Elizabeth Halseth has been arrested on suspicion of "open and gross lewdness" -- commonly defined as inappropriate touching -- after his wife alleged that he tried to force himself on her for sex.

Daniel Halseth, 32, was booked into Clark County Detention Center and released following his arrest on Friday. Elizabeth Halseth, a conservative Republican, was elected last November to represent District 9 in Las Vegas. It was her first try for pubilc office.

Metro Police say they were alerted to the case by Elizabeth Halseth's mother, Candy Schworak, who flew to Las Vegas from Oregon the day after she received a troubling phone call from her daughter.

During a phone conversation, Elizabeth had told Schworak that she and Daniel were having marital problems, that he had become controlling and tried to force her to have sex, according to the police report. According to the police report, Daniel also threatened that if Elizabeth didnt submit to him as her husband as the Bible says he would destroy her.

this so public, or is that the whole point, publicity? Why not just kick him out if she's so threatened by him?
I guess you'd have to be there to actually know what went on.

When people rape their spouses, it usually is not reported though, you're right.

6. Yes, I read that, but I imagine her daughter gave her
permission. Anyway, this is strange.

And HELLO! Long time! :hug:

12. Hello!
:hug:

It's very strange... I what drove her to risk this kind of exposure. It pains me to think of what so many women go through.

9. I'm gonna say it: He looks like he'd clean up REAL well. This is a weird story. I mean, the husband
was "lewd"??

13. Yeah, seriously, he looks like a model or actor. That said, I imagine
he might have been getting threatening or violent--lewdness is generally expected behavior of husbands, I would think...

10. She obviously does not adhere to Michelle Bachmann's standards and example of being a wife.
Then again , I doubt Michelle has ever been forced by her husband to have sex with him.
