GOP fundraiser who won't be having his photo taken with top dogs anytime soon ... by gimleteye

Utah police contacted by the women in several cities at first declined to pursue GOP fundraiser Greg Peterson as he was so well connected politically. Then a cop linked all of the reports together: Utah GOP fundraiser Greg Peterson has been charged with kidnapping and raping multiple women. (We linked the photos, ourselves.) Sad and ironic that Peterson met at least one of the women he raped at church. Reminds me in a perverse way of Edward Abbey who wrote, "I always write with my .357 magnum handy. Why? Well, you never know when God may try to interfere." Who could object, the NRA? Go on Greg Peterson: stand your ground.

Republican fundraiser charged with kidnapping, raping multiple women

A high-profile Republican fundraiser who co-chaired at least one event for presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has been accused of kidnapping and raping several women that he met online and at church.

The Salt Lake Tribune reported that 37-year-old Gregory Peterson had been arrested on Wednesday and charged with 23 felonies and two misdemeanors. Charges included “nine counts of forcible sexual abuse, seven counts of rape, three counts of object rape, two counts of aggravated kidnapping, forcible sodomy, assault, burglary and sexual battery,” according to KSL. As of Thursday afternoon, we was still being held at the Salt Lake County jail on $750,000 bond.

Charging documents indicated that Peterson victimized a least four women, three of whom he met at an online dating site.

A fourth woman he met at a church function in 2011 agreed to go to a movie with him, but he allegedly forced her to go to his 3,000-square-foot cabin in Heber, Utah after telling her he had a gun. Peterson is accused of sexually assaulting the woman and hitting her when she didn’t follow his instructions.

He is also accused of threatening to report a woman he met online for having an expired visa. He then allegedly drove her to his cabin where she was raped and assaulted.

Peterson’s Facebook page showed a photo him meeting with Romney and indicated that he co-chaired at least one Romney fundraiser on Nov. 17, 2007, according to Talking Points Memo. ABC 4 obtained a photo of Peterson with his arm around a smiling Romney at another event.

Peterson owns Peterson Wealth Management and the online trading website He also holds an MBA in Finance & Entrepreneurship from Brigham Young University.

Can we resurrect those photos of John Wayne Gacy with Roslyn Carter?

Was John Wayne Gacy a major fundraiser for Rosalyn Carter? Or was he born in Kenya?
