Should you ever log on to the website Trump.Dating, William Barrett Riddleberger of North Carolina is featured smiling next to his wife Jodi as the two wear Trump campaign trucker hats. The Conservatives for Guilford County (C4GC) co-founders are featured prominently on the "straight only" dating website.

The Riddleberger couple are leading Tea Party figures in North Carolina and have been a major part of Guilford County Republican groups for years.

State criminal records show Riddleberger was convicted in 1995 for filming himself having sex with a 15-year-old girl when he was 25 years old. But while Riddleberger told local news station WRAL-TV that "I've already paid my debt for something I did 25 years ago," prison records don't show that he ever did jail time. His record for the past 23 years, however, shows no criminal activity since the 1995 conviction.
