Who can forget the terror that gripped the University of Wyoming campus in spring after this ominous Facebook threat:
“I want to hatef–k Meg Lanker Simons so hard. That chick that runs her liberal mouth all the time and doesn’t care who knows it. I think its hot and it makes me angry. One night with me and shes gonna be a good Republican b–ch.”
The victim of this Facebook threat cited it as “an example of rape culture,” and who could doubt she was an object of twisted GOP lust?
All over campus, plus-sized Women’s Studies majors hid themselves behind dead-bolted doors, while University of Wyoming officials launched an investigation to find the hateful misogynist responsible for this crime.
Except, of course, not really:
Because she is a liar, the obviously guilty hoaxer initially pleaded not guilty, but now admits that she lied about her lying lies:
A jury trial scheduled for next week in Second Judicial Circuit Court concerning an alleged social media hoax at the University of Wyoming has been vacated. . . .
Former University of Wyoming student Meghan Lanker-Simons, now attending law school in a western state, is charged in Circuit Court with interfering with a peace officer, a misdemeanor. She pleaded not guilty to the charge earlier in the case.
However, according to a court document, she now intends to change her plea pursuant to an agreement with the state.
Merseal and Lanker-Simons’ defense attorney, Vaughn Neubauer, appeared in Circuit Court for a motion hearing with Judge Randal R. Arp, who appeared via telephone.
Neubauer said his client intends to change her plea to no contest. . . .
In exchange for Lanker-Simons’ plea, Neubauer said the state agrees to recommend the defendant receive a “minimal” fine and no jail time.
He said his client is likely to waive her appearance for the plea hearing and sentencing.
So, a Democrat who deliberately perpetrated a hoax to smear Republicans is (a) attending law school, and (b) will receive a “minimal” fine, which is nevertheless far more punishment than most Democrats ever receive for their habitual dishonesty.
UPDATE: A reader e-mails this comment:
I don’t know if she’ll take the bar exam but they do ask all kinds of crazy questions on the application and do a background check. You have to provide addresses and places of employment for the last 10 years, answer a bunch of questions about criminal activity and ours had a final question that was basically “any other naughty thing we didn’t think of?” Character is an issue and, depending on the state in which she applies to sit for the bar, this may be considered a character issue that would eliminate her from the bar.
I know a couple of people who weren’t admittable; one guy, who was going to take the bar in CT, was denied as he was way behind on child support and when he sent his application in, they said not even to think it. The other guy was a gynecologist who had lost his MD license over abusing patients and was quite interesting as his was the moot court case when he was in law school.
If I recall correctly, Meg had other crimes in her past so may make sitting for the bar a moot point for herself, assuming she graduates.
Yes, as we reported in May:
“Meg Lanker-Simons” is the alias of a dangerously crazy criminal formerly known as Meghan Michelena, who in 2006 pleaded guilty to aggravated assault after getting fired from a Wyoming radio station . . .
Lanker-Simons walked into an Albany County radio station she’d been fired from with a Glock 22 .40 caliber handgun.
She confronted a man who had decided to terminate her, the affidavit reports. The man also told her, the court documents state, that she would not be rehired.
Lanker-Simons “pulled a semi-automatic pistol from her purse, waved the firearm around and pointed (the) firearm at (the man),” according to the affidavit.
With that kind of record, she might become a Harvard Law professor.
