Former Texas GOP official arrested for ‘aggravated sexual assault of a child’: report

Published

on

The former sergeant-at-arms for the Hays County Republican Party was arrested for aggravated sexual assault of a child, the San Marcos Record reports.

“Bo Michael Dresner was booked into the Hays County Jail on April 3 and had not been released as of press time,” the newspaper noted.

Dresner is being held on $250,000 bond.

“The affidavit also states that Child Protective Services (CPS) Investigator Alexandra Rodriguez removed four children from Dresner’s custody on March 28,” the paper explained. “County court records show that there were three CPS cases filed on March 29 regarding the custody of four children in which Dresner was named as a party.”

The abuse may have gone back seven years.

“An archived copy of the Hays County Republican Party’s website from March 2018 lists him as the Precinct 336 chair and sergeant-at-arms for 2016-2018,” the newspaper reported. “The affidavit states that the victim was younger than 14 years of age at the time of the offense and that, during a forensic interview, the victim said Dresner gave her ‘unidentified medicine’ before the alleged offense.”

Dresner is faced with a minimum prison term of 25 years.

President Donald Trump's conservative opponents have been publicly debating whether the GOP deserves to survive, but The Week columnist Damon Linker says reducing the party to cinders and ash won't root out the party's rotten core.

"The head of the party is a corrupt and malicious imbecile," Linker wrote. "Republicans in Congress are a mix of Trump enablers, obstructionist-demagogues out to maximize the wealth of their donors, know-nothing conspiracist loons, and a few reformers experimenting with the most politically palatable way to blend nationalism with socialism. All of them are primarily motivated by the drive toward self-promotion within the right-wing media complex. And when we move further down the Republican hierarchy to the state and local level, things only get worse."

President Donald Trump on Wednesday told "Fox & Friends" that the novel coronavirus "will go away, like things go away."

Back in February, Trump said the virus "miraculously goes away," then said in March that "it'll go away," and then in April declared that "it's going away."
