PBP - A Lake Park man “obsessed with Fox News and the Republican party” is in jail today after he allegedly said that he felt he was going to have to kill his girlfriend because she was a “liberal.” David A. Kappheim, 60, is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail without bail. He was arrested Tuesday and the arresting Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputy placed Kappheim under a Baker Act. Kappheim is facing charges of domestic battery, aggravated assault and criminal mischief. Kappheim’s 59-year-old girlfriend, whose name was withheld in the report, told the deputy a number of incidents happened with him before Tuesday. On Saturday, Kappheim showed up at her friend’s house uninvited and “stark naked,” she said, according to the arrest report. She said he tried strangling her the next day.
I know you guys think I'm going to bust on this man, but I'm not. Look, if I'm a beaten-down-and-dating sixty year old guy who found out that my 59 year old girlfriend (who better be hot or I'm getting younger at that position) is the political polar opposite of me, I'd go ballistic, too. I had dreams of snuggling on the couch watching MSNBC together and suddenly I realize I'm dating some chick who is going to make me watch Bill O'Reilly and Hannity every night? I'd flip out. Big time. And going over to her friend's house stark naked would have been #1 on my list of things to do.
No condemnation for you, Mr. Kappheim. It's a tough dating world out there.
