John Kalal's mugshot: Meet the wholesome spokesman for BirthOrNot.com

John Taylor Kalal has been the face of BirthOrNot.com in Apple Valley.
Turns out everyone involved in this BirthOrNot hoax has something to hide.

The last two times we've tried to get Alisha and Pete Arnold to explain the trail of internet evidence that shows BirthOrNot.com -- the supposed poll to determine if they should terminate Alisha's pregnancy -- is a hoax, we've been headed off at the door by John Kalal.

Kalal, it turns out, has left a bit of a trail of his own.

When we talked to Kalal earlier today, he helpfully confirmed that Zeeboid is indeed Pete Arnold's online identity. He used it to troll DailyKos's pro-choice page, as well as one of Gawker's own commenters just hours before the fake story "broke" on that site.

But it turns out that Kalal has some skeletons in his own closet. His criminal record reveals Kalal has a pretty long rap sheet of multiple DWI's and a recent conviction for domestic abuse and violating an order of protection.

Worst fake abortion-poll spokesman ever?

The first DWI came at the tender age of 18 in Washington County:

Another reared its drunken head four years later in Hennepin County, graduating Kalal up to gross misdemeanor charges.

Yet again in 2001 after refusing to take a sobriety test in Hennepin County:

Another refused test and DWI in 2005:

After getting popped driving without a license in 2008, Kalal was busted in Falcon Heights for driving under the influence and refusing a test -- this time at 3 p.m. on a Saturday. That last time earned him felony charges.

And to top it all off, he was most recently convicted of domestic abuse and violating an order of protection.

Kalal previously accused us of making up our dissection of the BirthOrNot.com hoax, but -- as it turns out -- once you do a little digging, all kinds of mud comes up.

UPDATE: Alisha Arnold loses job after BirthOrNot hoax
