Utah tea party activist Greg Peterson accused of multiple rapes

Utah tea party activist Greg Peterson accused of multiple rapes

Life sentence possible » In two cases, Gregory N. Peterson is suspected of taking victims to a cabin in Heber.

A Utah Republican activist is accused of raping four women — two of whom say they were taken to the Heber cabin where the man hosted major political events.

Gregory Nathan Peterson, 37, of Orem, was charged Wednesday 3rd District Court in Salt Lake City with 23 felony counts, including rape and kidnapping, and two misdemeanors. A jail log indicates U.S. marshals arrested Peterson in his home in Heber and booked him into the Salt Lake County jail. He remained there Thursday in lieu of $750,000 bail.

Charging documents allege sexual assaults against four women Peterson met in Salt Lake County beginning March 26, 2011. In the first case, the documents allege, he met a woman at a church function and she agreed to go to a movie with him.

On Peterson’s Facebook page, he describes himself as the owner of Peterson Wealth Management and features a photo of him meeting GOP presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Another photo shows an invitation to a Romney fundraiser that he co-chaired on Nov. 17, 2007 in Park City, Utah.

His most recent Facebook post was at 3:49 p.m. on Wednesday with an image of a spider in a web. The photo mocked a recent speech by President Obama with the text “Nice Web. You Didn’t Build That.”

None of the alleged crimes appear to be directly connected to Peterson’s political activities or the candidates he hosted fundraisers for.

5. This is nothing more than a distraction from the crimes committed by Occupy Wall Street

 

which include theft of a hottub time machine to commit a murder in 2004, and of course pissing on the sidewalk.
