 Via Acornofinlandempire’s blog:

Friday  July 10,  2009

Members Michael and Dennis of the San Bernardino ACORN along with Tresa Kaelke (San Bernardino ACORN Community Organizer) and Christina Spach (California Field Corrdinator); attended the schedule meeting with California State Senator Gloria Negrete McLeod of District 32.


It must have been Tresa’s first husband that she shot, her second one (Ronald Kaelke) appears to be alive and well – with a restraining order against her.


ACORNs response, including the police report they filed to investigate the “alledged homicide”.

    I’m so glad somebody else is looking up the employees! I wondered why nobody was, so the minute I saw Tresa’s name I did a google search for her and came up with the Facebook and LinkedIn profiles which I promptly stuck on my blog, but I see you’ve gotten farther than I. Thank you for finding the info on all of the employees. I looked on the ACORN pages and some of the employees names have been swiped, but apparantly some are still employed there interestingly enough. Great blog! Definitely going to bookmark it.

    I think it’s remarkable that the people in ACORN are so ignorant. I mean the ‘sting’ has been going on for a week and they’re still falling for it.

      They just don’t care – they have friends in high places. I don’t think they’ve been paying attention to how quickly their ‘friend’ throws people under the bus…………..

    I saw that, I was trying to figure out what kids these were. She’s 61 years old…………

    I removed his address and phone number just in case it is a different person. Didn’t find any record of his death.

    Nicely done. The death of Duane Berhow in 1992, looks like it might have been her son. I haven’t been able to find any other death record either.

    Donald Kaelke seems to be a typo – her most recent marriage was Ronald. That much I could find.

    Just to add to the confusion – there may be a Ronald junior as well – I found a divorce record for Ronald in 2000 and it wasn’t Tresa.

      I saw that record to0 but really can’t connect it to either of them without possibly making an error. She is some piece of work.

      The city of San Bernardino at one time was a beautiful, farming community. Over the years, it has turned into a toilet even though the city is the county seat of San Bernardino County, the largest county in the contiguous United States. Lots of problems.

      • speakmymindblog

        Yes, she is. I just posted the police report ACORN filed to investigate the ‘alledged homicide’. Supposedly SB Police have spoke to both her husbands. She was just playing along – This is getting interesting.

        I grew up in CA and yes San Berdu used to be a great area, it’s trash now.
