Politician: My Wife Threatened to Harm My Staffer Over Affair Allegations

American Children First is investigating allegations of misconduct and unethical behavior by California Republican Assemblyman Marc Steinorth (R-Rancho Cucamonga) and we recently reported about how he went nuclear and viciously attacked his estranged wife.

More information about the smears contained within his divorce declaration can be read here. In this blog post, we want to focus in on a specific detail that we believe merits public scrutiny.​

Assemblyman Marc Steinorth betrayed the people of California when he violated his promise and voted for the "cap and trade" bill that will raise the price of gas by 71 cents per gallon. Votes have consequences and we intend to make him pay. 

Grab some popcorn and follow along with us over at "The Marc Steinorth Files." I guarantee you are going to enjoy the happy ending.

Assemblyman Steinorth claims in the publicly available document, which you can read at the bottom of this post, that his wife, Maria Steinorth, threatened to physically harm one of his staffers. ​Steinorth claims that his wife, who he claims to suffer from mental illness and dramatic mood shifts, accuses him of having an affair with the female staff member.

On page 3, lines 21-22, Steinorth explains to the court: "[Maria] believes, without evidence or justification that I am having an affair and as a result, has threatened to harm a person who works as a member of my staff."

On September 26th, American Children First exclusively broke the news that Maria Steinorth called 9-1-1 to report a domestic disturbance between her and her husband at their family residence. Our sources told us that Mrs. Steinorth witnessed her husband and his chief of staff, Heather Rouhana, engaged in some sort of inappropriate physical contact on the video monitoring system​ of the family business.

In the divorce declaration where Steinorth accuses his wife of making a threat towards his staffer, he signed under penalty of perjury that his statements were true.

It begs the question. If Assemblyman Steinorth was sincerely terrified that his wife might hurt him, his children or herself, and that she truly expressed suicidal ideations, and he was concerned enough about these alleged threats to a staff member to mention them in a public document, did he ever report this to any law enforcement authorities or to the California Assembly Ethics Committee?

Did he ever report these threats to his employee? And is he under any obligation to do so?

As previously mentioned in a previous blog post, we are unaware of any restraining orders placed upon Maria Steinorth by either her husband, who has claimed domestic abuse, or Heather Rouhana, his chief of staff.​

Stay tuned as we attempt to get to the bottom of this and other very troubling allegations involving Assemblyman Marc Steinorth.​

​This blog post will be just one in a series of posts in a project we are calling "The Marc Steinorth Files."
