Orem Tea Party activist Gregory Nathan Peterson has been charged today with multiple felony counts for allegedly raping four women, two of whom were allegedly sexually assaulted at his cabin in Heber. --- The Salt Lake Tribune's story about it is here.
The 37-year-old financial planner from Orem made a name for himself as the host of an annual barbecue at his cabin, which, according to blogger Michael Jolley, is located at the Timberlakes Estates near Heber City (interior shots of the luxury cabin, called Moose Lodge, can be seen here ). According to Jolley, the event was originally held to help heal "the rifts formed in the Utah GOP following the hotly contested primary between Mike Lee and Tim Bridgewater."
Judging by the photos on Jolley's blog, it was a veritable who's who of Utah's GOP royalty, who are no doubt now scrambling to distance themselves from Peterson.
