Wife Attacks Husband After Finding Copies of The Onion in Car

Victim tells police his wife considers the papers "pornography" and it has caused issues in their marriage.

The Shepherd Express and The Onion are iconic Wisconsin publications well known for their alternative views and humor.

However, when one man's wife found issues of those two papers in his trunk, it incited an incident that could very well be mistaken for a headline in The Onion.

A 56-year-old Menomonee Falls woman is facing charges after she allegedly attacked her husband for having copies of the Shepherd Express and The Onion in the trunk of his car.

Lynne M. Rasbornik was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court Monday with one count of disorderly conduct domestic abuse. If convicted, she faces up to 90 days in jail and $1,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint:

On May 19, the victim’s car was parked in their driveway in the N5100 block of Dolphin Drive and Rasbornik was going through the trunk when she found copies of the newspapers. She came into the house and confronted her husband about the papers then attacking him.

The man said his wife considers the publications “pornography” and the issue has been around in their marriage before.

The victim was able to get Rasbornik to the ground, then he wanted to leave, so he let her go and went to get his son’s guitar that he was going to borrow. Rasbornik then grabbed a vase and tried to throw it at her husband, but he was able to grab her arms and stop her.

Rasbornik began to flail her arms and scream before running out of the house to the victim’s car and take his cell phone, a notebook with his driver’s license and credit card inside, a Starbucks gift card and his handicapped placard.

While talking with a police officer, Rasbornik said her husband had attacked her, but she kept scratching and poking herself to make injuries more apparent. The officer told her to stop, but once taken in for booking she continued to scratch and twist her arms to make it appear that she was injured.

She will make her initial appearance in court Aug. 7.

hi Mike Knight you are a perceptive guy. I don't think american men quite realize how bad they have it until they travel abroad and see how men are treated in other lands; it is a shock to the system to have attractive women treat you well if you treat them well (rarely happens in America). I would urge any young man to NEVER marry an american female; shoot them if you must, but never marry one (they will be prove to be a cancer in your life and will drain it of joy and happiness because that's what they do). Mike, I have heard so many horror stories of what good men endured in dysfunctional marriages; it is heart-breaking because these guys tried to do the right thing and were ruined for it (if it can happen to the good guys, it can happen to all of us). NEVER let an american (white) female be the mother of your children; she'll use them to get to you and will sh at all over both.

A wise man once said, "The only constant thing in all your dissatisfying relationships is YOU". If every woman you've ever had a relationship with has treated you like crap, you might need to consider the possibility that maybe, just maybe, the real problem is that you're an annoying twit.

Love is blind. There are equally as many psycho men as women - Men who cheat with anyone who comes along, want to control or possess their spouses or girlfriends to the point that they kidnap them, beat them, torture them, harass them, and on and on. Women who manipulate, cheat, lie, and do devious things to men. One cannot prove that it is more one sex or the other - It is just a matter of sane or crazy....emotionally mature or immature... I left my husband because he was verbally abusive and repressively controlling. My son left his wife because she constantly cheated, lied, verbally abused him (borderline personality disorder we suspect). This story highlights one dysfunctional relationship - there are a million of them out there - this is just one of them.

Well, I've been around the block several times and there are equal numbers of psycho men as well. As far as the institution of marriage being antiquated, I believe that people in this day and age don't understand compassion, compromise and sacrifice. God helps us if any of you ever marry. I have a wonderful man that I am 'shacking' up with. Do I believe in marriage? Absolutely. But you guys sound like you are either not taking the time to get to know someone, or just scraping the bottom of the barrel. I'm just floored at these comments.

women commit most of the violent acts against children, initiate most divorce proceedings, our sons have skyrocketing suicide rates and are underperforming academically (probably because they have to listen to feminist sociopaths in the classroom attack all things male during their critical formative years) and you're whining about a few good men telling it like it is on these forums. Grow up, lady; if you saw yourself through the eyes of a man, you'd understand why more and more men are dating women from other parts of the world.

Christina Hoff Sommers wrote a book, The War against Boys, a little more than a decade ago which sums up what is happening to our sons in our gynocentric society; W.D. Draves has another great work that looks at what the education system does to our sons - not that nanc cares, because she's a gender feminist all the way. here's the link to the Draves article: Draves, W.A. `Why boys underperform in school.`` http://www.williamdraves.com/works/boys.htm North American Caucasian women are the biggest pigs on the planet; I fervently hope that they stop breeding or that the caliphate takes care of them (the former is more likely than the latter, though).

Wow, joe, mail-order brides, much?

people need to grab a clue or buy a vowel when it comes to women in this culture; I would advocate shipping them to south africa, en masse, but that will be costly. In any case, we do need to address the white female problem in our society because the people driving the inquisition against our boys in the education system, in the law courts, and in academia, are overwhelmingly white females.
jethro was here June 26, 2012 at 05:17 PM
look at the social and economic statistics, Biffa Bacon; there is a pogram being waged against our sons by a certain group. Don't take my word for it; the statistics are all around you
Nanc June 27, 2012 at 03:07 PM
No need to resort to name calling Jethro. How presumptuous of you to call me a gender feminist. You have no idea who I am, what I believe in of how I treat people in my life. But, I'm not going to defend myself to you. Statistics can be skewed to fit any opinion. Your parents must be proud.
my response June 27, 2012 at 07:08 PM
you indicate that you want to keep the conversation above-board and then you bring my family into it; that is pig behavior in my opinion. Also, feminists have been skewing statistics for decades as part of their campaign against men and young male children - and you evidently had no problem with that practice, did you? Truth is, this culture treats our sons abysmally and penalizes them for being little boys; I submit that women like you are part of the problem because women like you refuse to see yourself as perpetrators and as part of the elite.
Nanc June 28, 2012 at 02:36 PM
Any your behavior and insulting me personally is being above board? I didn't insult your family. What happened to make YOU so bitter. Not stats, not reports, but personal experience shapes the person. I hope you find peace.
my response June 28, 2012 at 03:10 PM
One thing you quickly learn with women is that, when they are challenged with facts, they immediately try to divert attention to the character of the person revealing those facts; you couldn't rebut my assertions, so you automatically inveighed against my person. Truth is, women like you are sociopaths, liars and cowards; everyone and his dog knows that this culture is very anti-male, but womyn like you - god help the child if you are a mother - keep denying what is transpiring against our sons because that would reveal your own duplicity and complicity. here are some links which show the phenomena of female-initiated child abuse against children; rape fraud directed at men; and female-initiated spousal abuse/domestic violence. Evidently, it's sexist and misogynistic to point out the hypocrisy and destructive nature of the american (white) female. Well, here's some misogyny for you.

there are loads and loads of statistics supporting everything I am saying; please get into a spitting match with me, Nanc; I'll bury you with the truth. Pig

No one said that, jethro. Get real.

The guy was looking for men for men....again after promise after promise. Of course he wouldn't tell the MF police that now would he. He gave her some pay back for getting caught over and over and over.....she's crazy alright.....for staying and believing a man that has a split personality....he must have beat the crap out of her and was afraid SHE would call the police....again....aren't they legally separated and he promised in court to get help ......what...don't you "people" check up on anything and of course you believe everything the police say....riiiiggghhttt...especially in MF
getterdone July 18, 2012 at 04:28 AM
statistics are someone's facts and then someone else gets more facts and changes the statistics. statistics prove that the onion used this story for it's own publicity trashing a family without checking history or truth...facts are not necessarily truth. wasn't that man in a head-on car crash and his wife and family took care of him. i heard she didn't even know he was gay and his family blame her for finding out.....now that is weird. remember fellow men.....always blame the women, just distort- and everyone will believe you.....of course we all know women are insane! Even your kids will believe you.

Jethro, I think perhaps you found women who would not bring you a cold beer the minute you walked into the door after work, and have the potroast hot and on the table with the kids all scrubbed clean. Your generalization of women in North America being pigs is at once, wrong, ludicrous and just plain idiotic. Go back to the garage and clean your tools.

The Shepherd Express ( should be called the Lemming express) is porn as far as the writing goes
