Breitbart: TWIN FALLS, IDAHO — Three sources have confirmed to Breitbart News that they saw city councilman and former Mayor Greg Lanting launch an error-ridden Facebook attack on the parents of the five-year-old victim of a sexual assault by refugee boys.
In the post, which is now deleted, but which Breitbart News received as a screen capture, the councilman also made a claim about the sealed evidence in the case, even though he has no access to the sealed evidence.
Lanting’s Facebook comment claimed that;
You realize these Internet Fake news agencies can LIE all they want and can never be proven wrong. The case is sealed we will never know more than we know now. Another obvious lie is the child does not live with the father. The police and now the courts have had the video since the night of the assault. The father as far as I know it is not even involved with the child. All Caps no way he saw the video. I doubt they even talked to him. Let justice be served and let this child have a chance at a normal life without making up lies about what happened to her. The police and the courts are doing every thing according to state law!!!
Mr. Lanting’s statement is factually incorrect on several levels.
First, the victim lives and has always lived with her father, according to her parents.
Second, the victim’s father gave Breitbart News a detailed account of seeing 30 seconds of the video. We posted his account with a lengthy quote. Also, his statement was confirmed by a law enforcement source.
Third, witnesses saw the father speaking to law enforcement the night of the assault and also saw him watch the video.
The victim’s mother tells Breitbart News that after she confronted Lanting about his factual inaccuracies, Lanting deleted the post.
