Face Of Trump Dating Site Convicted Of Sex With Minor

A screenshot that caught Twitter by storm is now getting attention for another reason…

A man very featured prominently on a new dating website that matches up Trump supporters has a felony conviction for taking indecent liberties with a child, according to a report.

William Barrett Riddleberger and his wife Jodi Riddleberger posed for the Trump.dating website, both looking happy as could be in their ill-fitting “Make America Great Again” hats. Just hours after the dating site went viral on social media, Riddleberger’s criminal history emerged, WRAL reported.

Since the controversy emerged, the couple has vanished from the homepage and Riddleberger, who was 25 when he videotaped himself having sex with a 15-year-old girl, told the local news station, “I’ve already paid my debt for something I did 25 years ago.” He said he’s been married for 22 years to the woman pictured with him, and his wife is the founder of the “Conservatives for Guilford County” PAC based in North Carolina. What a surprise.

The dating site aims to match fellow Trump supporters and states, “We’re wrecking the dating game and giving like-minded Americans a chance to meet without the awkwardness that comes with the first conversation about politics.” Well, thanks for weeding out Trump supporters from the regular dating pool, I guess?

Like many suggested on Twitter once these pictures became publicized, the only fitting name for a dating site like this is OKStupid.
