If blowing up two worn-out liberal cliches with one headline wasn’t enough, you’ll note this vicious assault happened in the most liberal city in America.
A multi-millionaire tech-entrepreneur, who was once named one of America’s ‘most eligible bachelors’, has avoided jail time despite allegedly beating and kicking his girlfriend 117 times in a 30 minute attack.
Gurbaksh Chahal, 31, was charged with 45 felony counts over the incident, which took place in his San Francisco apartment in August last year.
Police obtained CCTV which allegedly show Chahal, who ironically describes himself as ‘die hard’, kicking his then-partner in the head multiple times and attempting to smother her.
Police were called to Chahal’s Infinity Towers penthouse apartment after a 911-call about domestic violence on August 5, 2013.
Chahal, who made his millions through online advertising startups and currently heads $100million-a-year RadiumOne, is alleged to have threatened to kill his girlfriend several times, according to a police report.
Chahal faced 45 felony charged and two misdemeanour charges based on the security footage San Francuisco police pulled from his bedroom.
The 45 counts also included Assault With a Deadly Weapon (not a fire arm), which in this case is cited as a pillow.
However, as the court case proceeded, a judge ruled the video inadmissible as the San Francisco Police Department had obtained it without a warrant. Chahal’s girlfriend also withdrew her testimony and refused to cooperate.
In the end, on April 16, Chahal pleaded guilty to one charge of domestic violence battery and one charge of battery and was sentenced to just 25 hours of community service, three years’ probation and a 52-week domestic violence training course.
Despite the incident in August, the recent court case and guilty plea, Chahal remains in charge of RadiumOne, working as a motivational speaker and lecturer and continues to publish ‘inspirational posts’ on his social media channels.
We hope for his sake he was never against gay marriage or his career might really suffer. Can you just imagine the 24/7 coverage and howls of outrage from the feminist mob if this guy was a big-money GOP donor. Anyway, perhaps the women at his company might like to protest, unless they’ve been scared into silence.
Chahal’s political contributions indicate more liberal sensibilities. He has donated more than $100,000 since 2011, all of which went the Democratic Party and Democratic candidates.
Those contributions include $81,600 to the Democratic National Committee and $5,000 to President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign.
RadiumOne’s board of directors includes Steve Westly, a major Obama donor who came under scrutiny after four companies that he invested in received stimulus subsidies while Westly sat on an advisory board directing the disbursement of stimulus money.
Chahal has visited the White House twice, on Nov. 30, 2011 to see the president, and on Dec. 14, 2012, to see the president and the first lady, according to White House visitor logs.
