Tim Donnelly is supposed to be a Christian. The Bible is clear about fortune tellers, psychics, Ouija Boards, Divination, etc… Heck in the old testament, King Saul lost his anointing as King because he saw a fortune teller. (King Saul and his Son Jonathan were killed in battle shortly thereafter)
If this sounds a lot like someone who is only a Christian when he thinks people are looking, your intrepid blogger agrees.
Many moons ago in 2012, Tim Donnelly was challenged by Bill Jahn. Donnelly ran as the Conservative against the establishment and beat back the challenge. I’d imagine if we knew then what we know now – these mailers would have had even more information in them and Bill Jahn may well have been the Assemblyman.
That said, given Donnelly’s long term mental health and financial issues, it does not surprise me at all to see that he was spending campaign money on this crap years ago when he held office. This is part of why Tim Donnelly is Right on Daily’s “Grifter of the Decade” 2010-2019. I knew he was a fraud in 2013 when I first met him.
It is time to dispense with this guy once and for all. IF you have any information – please email firstname.lastname@example.org, you can remain anonymous.
As a convicted felon, Donnelly couldn’t own a gun, so he bought one illegally, tried to take it on a plane, and then lied about it.
In February 2012, Donnelly was arrested at the Ontario Airport for attempting to carry a loaded .45-caliber Colt Mark IV pistol on to an airplane. Not only was this illegal, but he didn’t even have a permit to carry a concealed weapon. In fact, the gun was not even his own. Donnelly plead guilty to two misdemeanor charges and then used his political position to get a sweetheart deal of three years of probation and a ban on using, possessing, or owning any firearms.
Donnelly then violated the terms of his probation. Once again, his political connections prevented him from going to prison.
In 2016, Donnelly’s wife called 911 to report Donnelly had abandoned his family and stolen from her, and she disclosed a secret behind his often-denied felony.
On June 19, 2016, Donnelly’s wife Rowena called the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department from the Donnelly home in Twin Peaks. She reported that Donnelly had abandoned his family and stolen her guns. She informed police that he was a convicted felon who was barred from owning firearms:

Throughout his life, Donnelly has shown a reckless disregard for the law. Whether it was violently breaking into people’s homes as a young man or mixing guns and alcohol as an adult, Donnelly has shown that he is a danger to his family, to society, and even to himself. Do we really want a repeat criminal who steals from his own family representing us in Congress?
Tim Donnelly was named Right on Daily’s Grifter of the Decade 2010-2019 for stuff like this. To be continued…
