For tonight’s Weird Weiner News we travel to Boise, ID where I’ll introduce you to Jonathan Parker.
Police arrested Johnathan on a felony first-degree stalking charge, alleging that Parker “did knowingly and maliciously engage” in conduct that “seriously alarmed, annoyed or harassed Kelly Parker,” his ex-wife.
Jonathan Parker is a lobbyist and the former Chairman of the Idaho Republican Party. His former wife currently has a restraining order filed against him.
According to the complaint filed against Parker, he was “repeatedly hiding in bushes, masturbating, disguising himself with a wig” at or near Kelly Parker’s apartment.
During his arraignment, the prosecutor told the judge police responded to a report of a man looking into windows and fondling himself. When police arrived, they learned that Parker’s estranged wife lived in the complex.
Police located Parker told police that he was there to scare a different female, but police said they were not able to contact this person. Probably because she didn’t exist.
Former GOP Idaho attorney general David Leroy represented Parker during the arraignment. Leroy told the judge that the while thing was a “grand misunderstanding” and that Parker had been invited to a costume party at the apartment complex.
His bail has been set at $80,000 and he faces up to 5 years in prison.
