DeMaio accuser lied to the FBI

Todd Bosnich admits he sent threatening emails to himself

Todd Bosnich, who made charges against House of Representatives candidate Carl DeMaio last fall, today (June 12) in federal court pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice.

In May of 2014, Bosnich had been terminated from DeMaio's campaign staff. Bosnich claimed he had been dropped because DeMaio had made sexual advances toward him and he had been offered a payoff to keep quiet.

The DeMaio campaign said Bosnich had been fired because of poor work performance.

In late May of 2014, an intruder did damage to DeMaio's office. On May 29, Bosnich wrote emails to the office of DeMaio's opponent, Scott Peters. Bosnich sent emails he had received while working for DeMaio and reiterated the sexual harassment charges. Peters's campaign sent the emails to the San Diego police, to whom Bosnich repeated the charges.

On June 5, 2014, Bosnich set up a dummy email account and sent an email to himself, threatening that if he didn't stop denigrating DeMaio, he wouldn't work in politics again.

Bosnich was interviewed by the FBI and speculated that DeMaio or an associate was responsible for the threatening email. In October, Bosnich told the FBI that he and his mother received three threatening emails and falsely told investigators that he didn't know who sent them.

Bosnich has now admitted that he was not telling the truth. He says he understands that, among other things, he could get 20 years in prison; however, the maximum sentence is not likely.

Just reading about local politics makes one want to take a shower to get the stink off.

I did take a shower and it didn't work. Considering the people that were involved I am just glad they "didn't make it".
