Bill Pulkrabek domestic assault victim: Married GOP politico dragged mistress by her hair

"Male beat up female," reads the incident report from yesterday's domestic assault arrest of Washington County Commissioner Bill Pulkrabek, one of Michele Bachmann's early mentors.

But the full account of the incident, obtained from police by City Pages, provides a much more disturbing look at the violent 4:20 p.m. incident on Memorial Day.

According to the police report, the incident began with an argument between Pulkrabek and his girlfriend, whose name is redacted from the report in accordance with privacy law.

The fight turned physical when Pulkrabek hurled her onto his bed by her hair. Once he had her down, Pulkrabek put his forearm across her throat, cutting off her breathing and choking her nearly unconscious.

She fought back, trying to get him off, and kneed him, according to the police report. But Pulkrabek wasn't pacified. He grabbed her by the hair and dragged her down the stairs and out of the building.

Lori and Bill Pulkrabek
Initial press reports of Pulkrabek's arrest hinted that his alleged victim was his wife, Lori Pulkrabek, an Oakdale City Council member who is prominently featured on her husband's campaign website.

Not so, say the police. The woman who lodged the complaint isn't Lori, but rather Bill Pulkrabek's girlfriend--which means he's accused of domestically assaulting his mistress.

The Washington County Attorney Pete Orput isn't getting involved in this case in order to avoid any appearance of conflict of interest with a fellow elected official. He's passed the case on to the Ramsey County Attorney's office, which isn't expected to file charges against Pulkrabek until tomorrow at the earliest.

UPDATE: GOP mistress choking happened at Pawlenty adviser's house

Here's the Initial Complaint Report from the Woodbury Police:

I would like to see the pictures of her bruises, abrasions etc . . . certainly if she was dragged down a flight of stairs there will be marks . . . gravity . . . you should be more circumspect in your writings as an open-minded publication - I love CP but this reporting seems to be a bit presumptive - almost gleefully . . . not your best work . . . BTW when is Edward Sharpe coming back to MNPLS?

What a cheap shot.  What does the fact that he once worked for Bachman or that it occurred in an advisor of Pawlenty's house have to do with anything?  This rag will do anything to gain attention.

Sounds suspiciously like acceptable behavior for many or Rep Ellisons constituents and co-religionists.......

But since there is the flisiets thread of connection to Bachmann, lets have at it CP!!!

This story just keeps getting better!  (Except for that poor woman - and that douche's wife.  I hope they both dump his sorry ass right quick.)

Ahhh, Washington County's "Mr. Environment", & "Mr. Rail Transit."I've always said; "there's a good reason the word "mental" is in there."So, wouldn't it be more appropriate to link this guy to the environmental movement, or perhaps the anti car nazi's?  Nah, that wouldn't fit the leftist narrative of CP.

Isn't it great?Protect the environment, strangle a fellow human.  What did she do, put the recycling in the garbage?

Can't you think of something else to do @ 4:20 on Memorial Day Mr. Environment?Perhaps that was the problem;  she was puffin, but would not give...

In most abuse reports, one or the other has to be arrested. Given he's a public figure of sorts, he's going to go. I know the mistress & her stories are ALWAYS fabricated. You are exactly right, she should have some sort of bruising, esp if she was drug down the stairs. If she was tossed outside, there would possibly be scrapes. I think this is a case of "you pick her or me" given that he's married & the mistress the puke have been dating for roughly 3 years. This woman is out for media attention & wants to make Bill now publically choose between her & his wife & his career is unimportant if she can't be on his arm as a trophy. I'm glad to hea the county is investigating. I hope they start interviewing people that she knows & has had history with. Her words won't stand w/o proof or an eye witness. Both of them are made for eachother, they're both insane.

Maybe CP can now do an article on the many glowing, upbeat, warm things Amy Klobuchar said about John Edwards?

If he was the rare pro-domestic violence politician (He is GOP after all, we are the big tent party)   would you be fine with him staying in office?

So he has former Sen. Brian LeClair's house in Woodbury and left Oakdale?Where's Brian?  Was it Brian's wife?  Whose the chippy?

Pulkrabek should resign. He is an embarrassment to the entire county.

Kirk--I live in Washington county--Bill P. missed most-many of those meetings for the environment and transit because he was "bored" and considered them a waste of time...http://stillwatergazette.com/a..."Earlier this month, commissioners slammed him for attending just five of this year's nine budget workshops. The Gazette found similar patterns for his committee and board assignments. Pulkrabek missed eight of nine regular meetings this year for the Metropolitan Energy Policy Coalition. He also missed both meetings of the Ramsey/Washington Resource Recovery Joint Powers Board. But Weik also described a much different purpose for the committees that Pulkrabek missed most. These are groups dealing with issues that must be confronted whatever one's philosophical leanings. The energy policy committee, for example, is crucial because new rules require energy policy to be tied to transportation policy."He thinks he is for "taxpayers" but he doesn't show up to required meetings and still collects a paycheck."Weik, who calls Pulkrabek's argument "smoke and mirrors," added that the economic crisis makes it more important than ever for commissioners to make the county's work their priority - especially since taxpayers are paying him a $52,713 salary and expect him to work full time."I don't think that's doing full service to the taxpayers," she said. "If you've got other career responsibilities, than that might not be the appropriate time to serve. Why are you running for office if you've got another job that's going to take from these duties?"So take heart--he's a GOP conservative Jerk too! :) However, his political leaning or lack of work ethic (or anybody else's for that matter) do not have any bearing as to what he's been accused of doing.

Kirk you see the reason for the attachment to Bachmann instead of environmentalist is because one is inflamed in anger and hatred and the other is usually associated with a passive nature. peace brother.....maybe Michelle will bail him out.

Those ink fumes have to be confusing you!Lets see.Some NON-PEACEFUL Environmental lunatics1. EarthFirst2. Earth Liberation Front3. Sea Sheperd Conservation Society4. Greenpeace5. Animal Liberation Front (ALF)6. the Earth Liberation Front (ELF)7. The Coalition to Save the Preserves 8. PETAThere are even members of Animal Rights groups such as Greenpeace and PETA on the terrorism watch list!!!!Don't forget about Theodor John "Ted" Kaczynski (AKA the Unabomber)How about the nut job who held people hostage at the Discovery Channel last year?Then you have groups like the Sierra Club, who get funding from those mentioned above.Yes, that "peaceful" environmental left.

See, with Citypages rational of linking M.B. to this guy; this can easily be applied to anyone who ever supported any of these environmental movements.

I wonder if Barack Obama has EVER given ANY money to these groups.  Wouldn't that link him to "terrorist group

Does anyone know what "anger and hatred" ink-boy is talking about?s" according to CP's standard?

Maybe the 11 1/2 % DROP in Real Estate caused by O'bama inflamed this idiot. Of course the 9% unemployment rate has nothing to do with it. Maybe like Clinton he has a wandering prelidiction towards young fat girls. What the hell does bachmann have to do with this idiot in the last 10 years? All this yellow rag does is slime a good person because of your idiology. Where is your article on good ole John Edwards the guy who almost was president?

Once again the clear thinking of Tea Party Republicans shines through.  Of course this is the fault of Obama and PETA.    When will the lamestream media report on the voices in Kirk's head?   One of the biggest problems with have in society today is the anti-car nazis.   Just the other day I had to save my car from an automobile concentration camp.

To continue to smear a decent, law abiding person for political ideology is shameful and lazy. Nick Pinto is a SEXIST. that is the only explanation.
