Police Chief Tried To Set Up Tea Party Leader As A Porn Fan

A police chief in Wisconsin has admitted to setting up fake accounts on pornography websites (among others) for a local tea party leader. The chief said his actions were retribution after the local tea party group complained when his department made them take down signs from overpasses.

Town of Campbell Police Chief Timothy Kelemen set up accounts under Gregory Luce’s name after he and fellow Tea Party members allegedly harassed Kelemen’s department after it banned their protest signs on overpasses, a police report filed in a federal court case showed.

According to the report, Kelemen retaliated by using Luce’s personal information to create identities on dating websites, pornography websites featuring homosexual men and healthcare.gov.

“I’m like, all right, buddy, you cause us a hassle, we’re going to cause you a hassle,” Kelemen said in a video clip posted on the La Crosse Tea Party website, showing an interview investigators did with him in May. Campbell borders on La Crosse.

“I’m not denying I did it … I didn’t think it was that big of a deal,” he added.

Maybe, in an America where the Obama administration has used the IRS to target conservative and “tea party” groups, this chief honestly didn’t see the big deal in this sort of character assassination.
