Former Idaho legislator was returning from Central America when arrested in Georgia

Former Idaho legislator Aaron von Ehlinger had been in Central America since May and was in the process of returning to Idaho when he was arrested in Georgia over the weekend, his attorney said Wednesday.

After hearing of the two felony charges he faces — rape, and sexual penetration with a foreign object, both filed more than two weeks ago — von Ehlinger contacted Boise attorney Jon Cox. Von Ehlinger was out of the country on a previously planned vacation, as well as a potential business interest, according to Cox.

The former legislator planned to turn himself in and contest the charges, Cox said.

Von Ehlinger, who lives in the Lewiston area, planned to arrive in Spokane last Friday on his way home, but had a “hiccup” in his travels and missed a connecting flight to Houston, Cox said. He ended up flying to Atlanta on Saturday instead.

2. Agreed. I'm giving him no benefit of doubt: He's twisted.

His "vacation" was about something else other than vacation OR business. Maybe he decided the possibility of being held in jail down there was worse than facing the music here. Dunno.

This news, Rep. Giddings actions in harming his victim and today's news of L.G. McGeachin's failure to release those documents as ordered is leaving me especially pissed off at Idaho's seeming inability to keep from electing knuckleheads.

I've about had it.

3. He was Aaron Anson Ehlinger. Who changes their name to Von Ehlinger? Is he trying to promote a

neo Nazi image? Looks like it with his little fasci hairdo. He should have been in that tiki torch mob at Charlottesville.

4. Probably was there. With luck, he'll wind up at the

'City of Lights' south of Boise. Sure hope so — he deserves it.
