Dan Johnson

A Kentucky Republican killed himself Wednesday night — a day after he held a news conference to deny allegations of improper conduct with a 17-year-old girl in 2012.

Dan Johnson, a Republican House representative, reportedly shot himself outside his car on the Greenwell Ford Road bridge in Mt. Washington, Kentucky.

Police received a tip alerting them to Johnson’s emotional post on Facebook.com about an hour before he killed himself.

Louisville police followed his cellphone pings and located his body near his car on the bridge over the Salt River. Bullitt County Sheriff Donnie Tinnell said Johnson’s body was found on the bank of the river.

On Tuesday, Johnson held a press conference at his church on Bardstown Road, to deny the allegations that he forced himself on a 17-year-old girl in the basement of his church in 2012.

The girl told authorities that she was staying in a living area of the Heart of Fire City Church where Johnson was pastor, when Johnson, who was drunk, approached her, kissed her and forced his hand down her pants.

The allegations were investigated by police at the time but the case was closed without charges for lack of evidence.

The Pope, as he was known to his parishioners at the Heart of Fire Church in southeast Louisville, said that he would not step down as state representative on Tuesday.

An investigative website published the woman’s version of the events on Monday.

Around 5 p.m. Wednesday, Johnson left an emotional post for his family and friends on Facebook. In the post he described his wife as “the best wife in the world” and he told his five children and nine grandchildren (two of them unborn) to “Forgive and Love everyone especially yourself.”

“The accusations from NPR are false GOD and only GOD knows the truth, nothing is the way they make it out to be. AMERICA will not survive this type of judge and jury fake news. Conservatives take a stand. I LOVE GOD and I LOVE MY WIFE, who is the best WIFE in the world, My Love Forever ! My Mom and Dad my FAMILY and all five of my kids and Nine grandchildren two in tummies and many more to come each of you or a total gift from GOD stay strong, REBECCA needs YOU . 9-11-2001 NYC/WTC, PTSD 24/7 16 years is a sickness that will take my life, I cannot handle it any longer. IT Has Won This Life . BUT HEAVEN IS MY HOME. “PLEASE LISTEN CLOSELY, Only Three things I ask of you to do, if you love me is (1) blame no person, Satan is the accuser, so blame the Devil himself. (2) Forgive and Love everyone especially yourself. (3) most importantly LOVE GOD. P.S. I LOVE MY FRIENDS YOU ARE FAMILY ! GOD LOVES ALL PEOPLE NO MATTER WHAT !”

  • Mo Mobetta

    If he said he was innocent who are you to judge.. I’m not on hers or his side. I’m on the side of truth and considering neither one of us is God I’d say let him be the decision maker..

  • Breitbart_Savior

    So, is America struggling thru the Trump era or what?

    How he got elected after the £#$$¥ grab tape is incredibly mindboggling.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    If he was a true man of God I figure he would have stood up to these charges and let God fight his battle for him, instead of taking the cowardly way out.

  • Nophace

    IDid I ever say he was right or wrong?!? Since you mentioned God, please tell me how Heaven will be his home if he committed Suicide and can’t repent for killing himself?!? Hahahaha

  • Jen_no_juice

    He didn’t want God to fight his battles? This makes him look guilty

  • Ro

    PREACH!

  • Ro

    I suppose this is the “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN ” BS DUMP was talking about.

  • Ghost

    Sandra…you missed a part of his story! This was the same guy that referred to the Obamas as being monkeys on his Facebook page..He had a lot of issues with black people….

    All these politicians want to call on GOD when it hits the fan but seem to have no memory of all the wrong doing they did in the past. I pray that his family finds the strength to heal..they know the truth..may not say it but they know., but this is a bitter pill to swallow during the holidays..and blaming PTSD is a cop out.

    KARMA has been sitting back resting and taking notes…now she’s on a rampage! Be careful what you do in life…like I said before…KARMA may be slow but she’s coming for sho!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    There are millions of low-information voters out there. It’s sad that people can be so blind and naive. Trump played them like a fiddle.

    No such thing as a so called yt man being a true man of God they are the children of the devil.

  • Renee26

    Good riddance…

  • Renee26

    He didn’t know God and now he’s dancing with Devil

  • Renee26

    Ok!! Oh ye guilty have little faith

    To Bad Trash

  • We Can Do This

    Good Riddance! Surprisingly, he didn’t kill his family and dog.

    He was never going to face charges or be prosecuted, so it must’ve been the stigma of being a molester that drove him to off himself.

  • You Could Never

    Bye

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. That’s an interesting detail.

    “In 2016, while running for office, he posted racist photos on his Facebook page that compared President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama to monkeys. He disregarded calls for him to drop out of the race — and won.”

  • Noirluv45

    My mom used to recite a song, “Everybody Talkin Bout Heaven Ain’t Going There.” Case and point!

  • Noirluv45

    Uh huh because he didn’t have God. According to the post above, he was a rabid racist.

  • Noirluv45

    Keywords: “True man of God.”

  • Noirluv45

    I wonder if he was innocent as he killed himself. If he were of God, don’t you think he would’ve given this issue to Him to allow the truth to come out? JS.

  • Fire & Ice

    OMG you said it all!!! Karma may be slow but she’s coming!! Be careful about the seeds being planted.

  • Nonya Bizness

    Love everybody except the Black President and his wife is what he meant. Miss me with the PTSD grab there. That’s not what killed you, and I can’t stand when someone is LYING and says”God knows the truth”. I’ve witnessed it in person and it boggles my mind, like, yes, he does know the truth, that you’re sitting here lying, so what’s your point again?

  • Anunnaki

    Earth is cleaning herself up…

  • Nonya Bizness

    I found out that aspect of the story yesterday right here in the comment section. Wonder if it will be resurrected in MSM as it should be? S hit, if someone can bring up Luther’s s exuality, why shouldn’t this creatures beliefs and FB posts that he had no apologies for be brought back up? People need to know who he really was.

  • Tennessean

    …or 211? I have called 211 before and they were expedient in sending someone to my rescue. I truly was overwhelmed with bills and thought I wanted to just let it go. But a friend suggested I call and I did. Still here.

    Because most of those holy rollers are underneath it all mentally ill.

    Most of my family go to church every Sunday but they are still crazy.

    It’s always alcohol isn’t it? I lived with drunks in my family and they don’t remember what happened the day before. They have no recall at all, so whenever I read things like this, it’s always when the man was drunk.

  • Good Riddance

    Even his parting words are those of a true loser?

  • Quitedeliteful

    Guilty as charged…

  • Quitedeliteful

    Them bills are a mutha and sometimes it just seems easier to just give up. I’m glad you were able to pull through…

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Now if we can get the rest of the pedis to follow…. I have no sympathy for people that harm children.

  • Trace da Ace

    I’m with you…..I personally feel like all the pedos should be castrated!! that should be a automatic punishment…..not saying it was true, but if he went to that extreme to take his own life…..must have some truth to it….

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Of course. I mainly like to post one people don’t normally read.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    No sympathy for pedos and racist ones at that.

  • FranziaRed

    Spoiled and selfish right to the end what an azzhole

  • You already know ?

    Good ????????????

  • Tennessean

    You shole right! But you know I still love it as I do the bible! I appreciate your thoughtfulness tho!

  • kekeb

    Upvote for castration

  • Allihave2say

    Sounds more like rape

  • Gabriel L. Acevedo

    So, he blames his suicide on 911?…LOL, just when you think you’ve head it all. I mean if you’re going to whack yourself, then just admit you molested an underage girl, and THEN!!, kill yourself.
