Registered Sex Offender appointed as Chairman of Contra Costa Peace and Freedom Party
The Inquirer, the student newspaper at Diablo Valley College, recently broke the story of the arrest of Steven Orcutt of Concord, California for an assault on campus. Orcutt who postures under the name "Frank Runninghorse" was discovered to have failed to register as a sex offender as required by Megan's Law whild attending school. The 56 year old was convicted in 2005 after being charged with four felony counts including one of possessing child pornography.
The Runninghorse story can be viewed online by going to www.theinquireronline.com The earlier 2005 arrest and conviction leading to the requirement that Orcutt register as a convicted sex offender is covered in the Inquirer article from the May 2010 campus incident.
In July 2010, Steven Bruce Orcutt was appointed as County Chairman of the Peace & Freedom Party Contra Costa Central Committee by the only member of that organization to be elected in the June primary, Sherri Borgg, Peace and Freedom candidate for Board of Equalization when she was filling vacancies on the county committtee. The appointment can be seen by clicking on www.peaceandfreedom.org and the going to the section on "county committees" . What is a feminist-socialist political party like Peace and Freedom Party doing appointing someone like this Runninghorse monster to any sort of leadership role?
Orcutt is apparently now claiming that his arrest and conviction for molesting the 14 to 15 year old was a police set-up, an issue he never raised at trial where his defense counsel was able to plead him down to a single misdeameanor from the initial four felony charges.
