Meg Lanker, Feminist Who Threatened to ‘Hate-F*ck’ Herself, Cops a Plea Bargain

Posted on | October 2, 2013 | 49 Comments

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.”

A wave of horrified panic swept through Laramie:

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:

Police: Student Faked Rape
Threat Against Herself

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.

    DIsgraceful to permit the plea, and I hope this is a request that the judge refuses to approve. It is, though, exactly the ending I predicted. It allows her to maintain a fiction among her friends that she was conspired against and isn’t really guilty, and to argue that she should not be prevented from taking the bar, if she manages to get through law school.


    Refuse to bake a cake for a lesbian wedding and you get charged with violating their civil rights and death threats then have to close up shop.Claim you were threatened to be hate f%^$(@ that leads to investigation which shows it was actually the threatened person just say my bad and you get to go to law school and a small fine

  • robertstacymccain

    Exactly: Crimes committed to advance a progressive agenda are not actually crimes.

    Bill Ayers could not be reached for comment.

  • darthlevin

    Sorry, I have trouble telling this one apart from the fake-Native-American one who took the flags down from the 9/11 memorial. I guess fattish pinko drama chicks all look alike.

  • richard mcenroe

    Come on, Stacy, if we punished EVERY Democrat as they deserved we wouldn’t have the cell space for lesser threats to society like dope smugglers, armed robbers and thrill-killers.

    OK, granted, there is considerable overlap…

  • richard mcenroe

    Look at the eyes on that woman. What else is she ever going to have in her life?

  • Ministry of Tooth

    She’s so innocent that she left the University, left the state, and poofed her social media footprint. I need to ping ThinkProgress and ask them when she’ll be receiving an award. Liberals love dishonesty, especially if it pushes a social agenda.

  • Tex Lovera

    Goodness! A lying, ugly, feminist, criminal, liberal hag!


    Well, knock me over with a feather

  • Unix-Jedi

    Let’s not forget that this was hardly the first incident, as you already know.

    (What law school *admitted* her with her record – or did she kind-of-forget-to-mention-these-hardly-worth-remembering-items?)

    Meghan Michelena, who in 2006 pleaded guilty to aggravated assault after getting fired from a Wyoming radio station:According to court records, she was charged in November 2005 in District Court with aggravated assault.

    Lanker-Simons, then Meghan Michelena, pleaded guilty to the charge in May 2006 as part of a plea agreement, records indicate. . . .
    She confronted a man who had decided to terminate her, the affidavit reports. 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.

    I’m sure it’s the NRA’s fault. Those lying liars.

  • Unix-Jedi

    And let’s not forget that this caused the “UW Crushes” website to be taken down.

    Which was her goal.

  • M. Thompson

    She just plead ‘no contest’ to a charge. I hope the appropriate State Bar Association says she lacks the appropriate moral character to be an attorney, not unlike a Neo-Nazi in Illinois in the late 90’s.

  • robertstacymccain

    “… lesser threats to society like dope smugglers, armed robbers and thrill-killers.”

    Minor offenses, compared to what Democrats are doing to America.

    Cell space? Sir, there is plenty of empty public land on which to construct flogging posts, gibbets, and impalement stakes. I see no need to waste valuable prison space on such scum as this.

  • sarah wells

    I read they are still hammering out details of the plea. I’d be less appalled by a no-contest deal if she is forced to admit authoring the offensive post to the court (which is not the same as admitting the charge).

  • richard mcenroe

    Sorry, that land is unavailable due to the eeeeeevil GOP shutdown. There are, however, booming opportunities in yellow tape sales, which are doing quite a bit to offset the downturn in red tape consumption.

    Figures ….no time for lanker the wanker

  • Bob Belvedere

    Trouble is, too many Bar Associations have been taken over by Marxists.

  • WarEagle82

    Maybe we could hook up this babe and Li’l Katie Hunt. Wouldn’t that be a win/win situation?

  • miznitic

    She’s pled out to a meager fine. C&F will ask questions about this, and the gun waiving incident.
