Tim Donnelly has a criminal history that includes a felony, two misdemeanors, theft of his wife’s property, and (likely) a DUI.

Ironic that Tim Donnelly rails against illegal immigrants when he himself is a felon and then some. In fact, two years ago, he stole from his own wife.

Tim Donnelly is above all else, a criminal. In college, Donnelly’s time as a student at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor ended when he was convicted of larceny following a botched burglary. After publicly denying his felony conviction, Donnelly was caught in his lie and admitted to “breaking into somebody else’s room and stealing a stereo from them” while drunk.

Donnelly’s alcohol problems continue.

Following this conviction, Donnelly left Michigan and moved to California, but his problems with alcohol might have followed him. In 2003, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department recorded a “driving under the influence” arrest for Donnelly’s Twin Peaks residence [full address redacted, see below for full report and other details]:

Donnelly claimed publicly that he “quit drinking” following his larceny conviction. That too is a lie. On social media, Donnelly has made many references to his problematic alcohol consumption such as this one in 2017:

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…

Tim Donnelly scammed a senior citizen for tens of thousands of dollars.

The video above chronicles the plight of Anna from Palm Springs, now 77 years old. Anna was an early supporter of Tim Donnelly in 2010. An advocate for greater border security, Anna thought she had found a champion in Donnelly. Instead, Donnelly found what he was looking for: access to money for his massive debts, and lots of it. In total, he took $65,000 from Anna.


Donnelly used Anna’s money illegally on his campaign, to pay off other debts, to pay off his misdemeanor fines, and to fund his lifestyle – all despite earning $91,000 per year in salary and over $30,000 per year in tax-free “per diem” pay as an Assemblyman for four years (December 2011-December 2014).

Want proof? Here’s a copy of a $10,000 Bank of America cashier’s check from Anna to Rowena Donnelly dated April 30, 2012, when Donnelly was already in office as an Assemblyman:

In 2011, while an Assemblyman with a huge salary, Donnelly’s wife Rowena even sent Anna the bill for their children’s private school tuition:

(Download this bill and email here.)

In 2012, while still an Assemblyman, Donnelly borrowed Anna’s 2008 Nissan Xterra and damaged it. The bill came to over $2500. What did Donnelly do? He sent the bill to Anna:

The file above shows Donnelly’s name on the bill from Tire Guys and Anna’s DMV registration for the Xterra (she still owns the vehicle). The matching license plate number is found on both the bill and the DMV registration.

(Download this bill here.)

While Donnelly lived on the high horse, Anna suffered. Donnelly never reported the loans on financial disclosures, nor did he disclose all monies Anna provided for his campaign efforts (a clear violation of California law).

Anna now lives on credit cards and can no longer afford her rent. Donnelly has yet to pay her back. This 2015 email exchange between Donnelly and Anna proves his liability:

(Download this email exchange here.)

In the exchange, Donnelly states plainly, “Rowena and I were separated, and I did sleep in my truck and studio. We are no longer separated.” One wonders what his wife learned about Tim that caused the latest separation.

Donnelly’s perpetual office seeking becomes clear when he says, “If I do get
back in office or get more steady work, I’ll get a loan, and pay you off in full immediately.” Simply put: he can’t find work, so he keeps running.

Donnelly closes by threatening Anna, “You need to decide if you want to harass me to death, or get paid a little each month, until things improve and I can pay you off.

Is this the Congressman you want? One who needs to be elected to address his monetary woes? One who threatens an elderly woman who he’s scammed for tens of thousands of dollars?

HELL NO!

Please note that Tim Donnelly never disclosed these loans on his Form 700’s, which is a violation of the law. The statute of limitations has passed or else I’d have filed a complaint against him.

Donnelly-LogoI have written ad naseum about Tim Donnelly. He is a fraud. I have made a clear case to prove it. He makes conservatives look like frauds. I have been pretty clear about my disdain for a lot of conservative frauds in office – but Donnelly is in a league of his own.

In my opinion, Donnelly should be in jail for fraud along with Lauren Stephens, his pet Chiahuahua who is also running for Fresno County Supervisor.

In 2013 – Sharon Gilbert of the Examiner sounded the alarm about Tim Donnelly’s plans. She wrote clearly about a contemptible man she knew well:

Donnelly was telling people to vote for Paul Cook, not Gregg Imus. For many, that was perplexing. For those in the know, it was not surprising.

Donnelly’s rationale was simple. He did not like Cook as Cook was a moderate Republican and could walk across the aisle to cut a deal, something Donnelly was incapable of doing. But Cook was also up there in age and has had serious health issues. The thought was that Cook would be in Congress less than ten years and likely only three terms. At the end of three terms, if not sooner, Donnelly could pick off Cook.

Donnelly’s goal was, and is, to be the next CD8 representative. The voters of CD8 are conservative enough to elect a Tim Donnelly as their representative.

I believed Sharon then and Tim Donnelly’s disaster of a guv campaign made it clear that Gilbert had nailed his agenda.

Donnelly is a disaster personally. He owes a ton of people money and had to try to raise a few bucks as his radio show was not cutting the mustard. Lauren Stephens and Tim Donnelly hatched a plan to try a referendum against SB277 – the third referendum Tim Donnelly was involved in.

I wrote about the SB277 “effort” a few times. The bottom line – I believe that Tim Donnelly ripped donors off for as much as $70k. The reports from the effort made it clear that Donnelly did indeed rake in $25k for his radio show, but there was a lot more money unaccounted for. Read More about the SB277 Referendum Scam here and Read more about the SB277 Referendum Scam here.

Sharon Gilbert’s Second Post in 2013 (after former Donnelly Chief of Staff Gregg Imus was defeated for Congress by Paul Cook) was a brutal expose’ of several things I would learn about Tim Donnelly over the last three years both factually and via anecdotal evidence:

The next time Tim is in a public forum, here are some questions to ask him (and demand full answers):

  1. Why were you in possession of an illegal firearm in an airport?

  2. Are you allowed to legally register firearms in your name now? Is that a term of probation or are their other reasons? What are those reasons?

  3. Prior to the airport incident, why were you not allowed to have a firearm registered in your name?

  4. How many bankruptcies have you filed, either as an individual or as part of a company or partnership?

  5. How many properties did you or do you own that have gone into foreclosure? In what states?

  6. Have you been convicted of a felony?

  7. Have you been taken into protective custody for being a danger to yourself or to others? Have you been subjected to a 72-hour mental health hold?

  8. What is the story with the strippers? How much debt do you have due to your sexual addiction?

  9. Why did you refuse to endorse Gregg Imus for Congress?

  10. Why did you provide the photo of the Imus house in Maine to the Paul Cook campaign?

  11. What other information about Imus did you (or your wife or thru a friend) did you provide to the Cook campaign?

  12. Why did you privately tell some of your supporters to vote for Paul Cook?

  13. When you were at the border, did you ever make racist or threatening remarks?

  14. When you were at the border, were you ever in possession of a weapon you could not legally possess?

  15. Have you ever been declined to buy a firearm by a licensed Federal Firearms dealer? When (month and year)?

I personally asked Tim Donnelly if he had a police record, knowing that he had been arrested for a felony in Michigan that he plead down to a misdemeanor. He bald-faced lied to me about having any sort of police record. The media found the misdemeanor during his guv run, but never followed up to find out the rest of the story.

I am also familiar with Tim Donnelly’s personal life, including his habits and his massive personal debt. I only have stories from several people, one of whose businesses failed due in part to Donnelly’s actions. Given that Donnelly lied to me about his police record, and his bizarre personal behavior – I am inclined to believe the stories.

After seeing the scam he ran that screwed the mothers of California out of their chance to overturn the police-state vaccination law, nothing I hear about Donnelly surprises me.

It is my understanding that Paul Cook will demolish Tim Donnelly at the ballot box. Tim Donnelly belongs in an institution, not in any other office. Please, voters of CD08, make him go away.

www.dirtydonnelly.com was put up by someone who did a ton of research in to Tim Donnelly and asked your intrepid blogger for permission to use our research in to Tim Donnelly as well. It has been up since 2018 as a permanent record of Tim Donnelly. Fasten your seatbelts as Right On Daily is going to re-introduce you to our nominee for Grifter-Fraud of the decade 2010-2019 Tim Donnelly. His maladies have eclipsed every other candidate I have written about that is not named Rodney Stanhope.

On the website you will see a complete history about Tim Donnelly, including his wife referencing a felony conviction. It also includes references to a DUI, and other misdemeanor convictions.

Tim Donnelly’s personal history which includes alcoholism and multiple relapses is on display as well.

As a sober alcoholic (17+ years in) – I know there is nothing worse than an addict that can not keep their sobriety together. Anyone with a pattern of relapsing and dishonesty associated with covering up for the relapsing has no business anywhere in office. Ever.

In addition, Tim Donnelly has had the cops out to his house 14 times. This includes him running out on his family in 2016 after on of his political defeats.

I had known about all of this stuff for years and did not have the where-with-all to follow up on trying to run down the records.

In addition, I was aware that Tim Donnelly owed several people in his district a lot of money.

One of his victims has come forward with her story of how Tim Donnelly conned her out of money, then refused to pay it back including threats and intimidation.

As an exclusive for Right on Daily, I have a copy of a cashier’s check from the elderly victim to Donnelly. I have filed an FPPC Complaint against Tim Donnelly regarding this as it is a violation of contribution limits and the loan(s) were not disclosed on Tim’s form 700’s.

You can read the details about the elderly widow that Tim Donnelly scammed on the website.

Excerpted here are some key facts that lead to our exclusive reveal here on Right on Daily.

Donnelly used Anna’s money illegally on his campaign, to pay off other debts, to pay off his misdemeanor fines, and to fund his lifestyle – all despite earning $91,000 per year in salary and over $30,000 per year in tax-free “per diem” pay as an Assemblyman for four years (December 2011-December 2014).

In 2011, while an Assemblyman with a huge salary, Donnelly’s wife Rowena even sent Anna the bill for their children’s private school tuition

In 2012, while still an Assemblyman, Donnelly borrowed Anna’s 2008 Nissan Xterra and damaged it. The bill came to over $2500. What did Donnelly do? He sent the bill to Anna

While Donnelly lived on the high horse, Anna suffered. Donnelly never reported the loans on financial disclosures, nor did he disclose all monies Anna provided for his campaign efforts (a clear violation of California law).

Anna now lives on credit cards and can no longer afford her rent. Donnelly has yet to pay her back.

The Dirty Donnelly Website has a lot of emails, copies of bills and receipts – but does not definitively prove that Tim Donnelly directly got money from the Elderly Widow. As an exclusive to Right on Daily, we are presenting the proof of Tim Donnelly’s scam.

Embedded is a Cashier’s Check for $10,000 to Rowena Donnelly. When combined with the emails posted on the website from Tim Donnelly acknowledging the debt (which totals over $60,000), this is airtight proof of the scam.

I had been told back in 2014 when Donnelly ran for governor that he owed / owes several people from his district a lot of money. I had a lot of stories and conversations, but this courageous widow is the first to actually go on the record.

It is because of knowing the truth for so many years about Tim Donnelly that I continued to chase him.

The account was in Rowena Donnelly’s name because Tim’s credit score is poor and he may be subject to collections activity. He has also left Roweena several times during his frequent mental episodes and/or relapses. Also note that this check was issued while Tim Donnelly was an incumbent assembly member.

It is time to make sure that Tim Donnelly is removed from the public eye forever. We conclude with a quote from the website:

In the exchange, Donnelly states plainly, “Rowena and I were separated, and I did sleep in my truck and studio. We are no longer separated.” One wonders what his wife learned about Tim that caused the latest separation.

Donnelly’s perpetual office seeking becomes clear when he says, “If I do get back in office or get more steady work, I’ll get a loan, and pay you off in full immediately.” Simply put: he can’t find work, so he keeps running.

Donnelly closes by threatening Anna, “You need to decide if you want to harass me to death, or get paid a little each month, until things improve and I can pay you off.

Is this the Congressman you want? One who needs to be elected to address his monetary woes? One who threatens an elderly woman who he’s scammed for tens of thousands of dollars?

Tim Donnelly is a sick man and is a complete fraud and one of the original grifters that has been loved on by Right On Daily. Since Tim Donnelly has no shame for what he has done with his life, the only way to protect people from him is to keep him out of public office and never do business with him until he has a true life-change.
