Former Carl DeMaio staffer pleads guilty to obstructing justice
SAN DIEGO — Former Carl DeMaio staffer Todd Bosnich has pleaded guilty to an obstruction of justice charge for lying to federal agents about the source of a threatening email that he sent himself.
Bosnich is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 31.
DeMaio issued the following statement regarding the felony charges against Bosnich:
“Todd Bosnich’s lies were incredibly painful, smeared my reputation and derailed our Congressional campaign. While the criminal prosecution today may hold Bosnich accountable on some level, Congressman Scott Peters shares responsibility for promoting Bosnich’s smears and lies for political gain.
I want to thank the FBI and US Attorney for pursuing the truth and seeking justice in this matter. I also want to thank the thousands of supporters who stood by me and saw this disgusting smear for what it was. Your faith and support sustained me through this nightmare.”
