Costa Mesa Councilwoman Wendy Leece’s son jailed for felony assault on his girlfriend

Is Costa Mesa Councilwoman Wendy Leece’s son Stephen a chip off the old block?

“The son of Mayor Pro-Tem Wendy Leece was arrested early Wednesday after an argument with his girlfriend.  Stephen Leece, 28, of Costa Mesa was arrested on suspicion of felony charges of causing corporal injury to a cohabitant,” according to the O.C. Register.

Wait a minute!  Isn’t Wendy Leece a hardcore ultra-conservative Talibani Republican?  Isn’t she known for those stances?  What the heck happened here?  Is it just me or did she raise a creepy son?

Check out the details of this alleged crime:

Sgt. Joyce LaPointe of the Costa Mesa Police Department said the argument began after Leece’s girlfriend returned to their residence in the 100 block of East 16th Street after a night drinking with girlfriends.

Leece, who was upset that she went out, began a verbal argument that became a physical altercation when he flipped over a table in the kitchen, LaPointe said.

He then grabbed the victim, causing bruising to her arm, and when she tried to get away from him, she cut her foot on the broken glass from the table, LaPointe said.

During the struggle, which took place for about 20 minutes, the victim’s 9-year-old son heard the commotion from his bedroom and tried to intervene. Leece pushed him out of the way, LaPointe said.

Nothing says Republican family values like pushing your nine year old out of the way so you can keep whacking his mom!

Sigh.  Darn Republicans!  If they spent more time raising their own kids instead of telling the rest of us what to do with our private lives we would all be so much better off!
