Former Cerro Gordo supervisor Jay Urdahl charged with harassment of elderly woman

Former Supervisor Jay Urdahl

MASON CITY – Former Cerro Gordo supervisor Jay Urdahl has been charged with harassment and cited by Mason City police after leaving a rat at an elderly woman’s door.

According to Mason City chief of police Jeff Brinkley, “Based on the complaint and the subsequent investigation, a criminal charge of Harassment in the 3rd Degree, a simple misdemeanor, was filed on Jay Urdahl, age 65, of Mason City. Urdahl was cited and released and given a court date on which to make his appearance. That citation was filed with the Clerk of Court yesterday.”

Mr. Urdahl was not arrested nor taken for a jail mugshot.  MCPD did not respond immediately to questions about that turn of events.

NIT has learned from several sources with knowledge of the incident that led to Urdahl’s citation that it all began after noon on New Year’s Day.

“There was a harassment reported to MCPD at 12:08 p.m. on January 1, 2019,” Chief Brinkley told NIT days ago, as our newsroom has been aware of the incident for some time but has allowed the case to develop. “There was a note and a plastic animal left outside of an apartment door.”

That plastic animal was left at the door of resident Pat Steinfort.  It was a rat, “rubber, medium sized” Ms. Steinfort told NIT Wednesday morning in a conversation.  The note was hand-written in big red letters, as she described it. It read:

Pat think about your sins

– John Stone

Shalom Tower #1

There is video evidence of Urdahl entering Shalom Tower I at 10:17 AM that morning, allegedly “in disguise.”  He was wearing a ball cap, sunglasses and a coat with a high fur collar.  He got on an elevator, went to Ms. Steinfort’s door and placed the note and the rat there and left.

Minutes later, Ms. Steinfort, who is battling cancer, was leaving to go to her daughter’s home when she opened her front door and was horrified by what she saw.

“I stepped back 50 feet when I saw it … I threw my clothes basket down … I was confused and scared,” Ms. Steinfort told NIT.  “I calmed down and called the police.”

John Stone is the former Cerro Gordo county Democratic party chairman who passed away Thursday, January 3, 2018. John Stone and Pat Steinfort go way back.  Years ago, in 2012, NIT reported that Ms. Steinfort left the Democratic Party on her own terms and apparently not on the best of terms with the party chairman Stone.  The dust-up was over candidate Chris Watts running for Supervisor with Ms. Stienfort’s support.  The animosity apparently never truly subsided over the years.

Our source says that Jay Urdahl (a long-time Democrat who is a member of the NIACC Alumni Board) claims “John Stone told me to do it.”  Urdahl also served as a Cerro Gordo county supervisor for decades, since the late 1980’s.  However, Mr. Urdahl confirmed nothing of the sort when reached for comment Wednesday.

“The report speaks for itself,” Mr. Urdahl told NIT in a phone call.

Mr. Urdahl’s court date wasn’t immediately available.  NIT is expecting more details to emerge in this incident, possibly as soon as this afternoon, and will update the story.

    Cops here, they want to protect Urdahl even tho he did what he did with this rat to this old lady that I have heard is dying of cancer.

    My brother in law, he worked with Jay up to the UPS. He says he smells another rat, thinks Urdahl might of try to pay off this old lady to not go after him, I mean on the charges.

    Can you do something on this part of this. Thank you sir.

      If you want proof of how hard the powers to be is protecting Jay, just ask our mayor to get this looked into, I mean a investegation yes I sure do.

      MC Girl you are right, our PD did try to protect Urdahl, sweep this under their rug. Thanks be to God for good old Pat S, she won’t let the cops do that. Good on her.

        My wife and I have met Jay, voted for him twice since. We have also met Mr. Blodgett. This was at the Quarry. A mutual friend introduced us. Todd was polite, respectful, well spoken, even charming.

        Your description of him as someone who hires violent goons to scare people into submission doesn’t square with our image of this man.

          In Blodgett’s own words:
          Todd Blodgett
          December 22, 2018 at 6:36 pm

          In reply to ‘Lois’: I recall the incident you described, which took place in 1998. Your late brother-in-law was very rude,
          and he lived in a house whose landlord supported my Dad’s re-election campaign.

          That owner gave permission to put up a BLODGETT yard sign, which your relative removed, and then refused to return.
          When I drove over there, he threatened violence. He didn’t intimidate me, despite his best efforts. But I also didn’t want any negative publicity.

          You’re correct that some friends of mine then paid him a little visit.
          And, yes, they were both “big black guys”, just like you said. Do you have a problem with that? Or, are you a racist?

          Those two proved highly effective, and they provided your brother-in-law with a much-needed attitude adjustment.
          Mason Cityans of all walks of life supported my Dad’s candidacies – and apparently, you’re still upset about that.

          Get over it, sweetie.

          As you wrote, once my buddies helped that Democrat to see the light, “he shut after that.”

          Merry Christmas, Lois

            Either that, or he will stick a loaded gun in their faces, like he did to those two carnival employees who were earning college tuition money. This was a few years ago, at the Clear Lake VFW.

            At the time Blodgett pulled his gun on the two students, he had no proof whatsoever that they had stolen his wallet. But that didn’t stop Toddy Boy from threatening their lives over a few dollars.

            It is not even legal in Iowa to be armed at a bar, but no one stopped this spoiled, violent Republitard from frightening the hell out of those two students. This was because the VFW in Clear Lake is just like the one in Mason City, full of ignorant, gun-loving rednecks.

            The sort of extra judicial posing that Todd likes to engage in works most of the time, whether you’re dealing with some college kids in a bar, or someone calling you out when trespassing on his property. The problem is, as any firearm instructor will tell you, is that you may end up doing it to the wrong person, and before you know if you end up taking a bullet through your face, or your house catches fire a week later with your family sleeping in it. Its just bad Karma. Better rely on the quality law enforcement we enjoy and sleep better at night 🙂

    Although I am a Democrat, I have never trusted, respected, or liked Jay Urdahl. Same for his wife, Kris, who is miserable, miserly and disliked by everyone who works with her. But why are some NIT readers even trying to speculate that Todd Blodgett may have been involved in this thing between Urdahl and Mrs. Steinfort?

    I don’t agree with Blodgett’s politics or his methods of getting results, settling scores, and taking the law into his own hands. I sure never understood why Dr. Blodgett and his son backed Urdahl’s campaigns, gave him money, raised him money, ect.

    But holy bejeezers, people, how can anyone say Mr. Blodgett might fit into this stupid little story? Do you hate this man so much that you want to place him where he never was, or what?

      I fully agree with you, Anonymous, but even more disturbing than the semi-literate comments are the views expressed therein. Particularly appalling are these Neanderthals who applaud Mr. Blodgett’s violent methods.

      One of our neighbors who owns some businesses here in MC fully approves of Blodgett’s M.O., because, he claims, the Police and Sheriff aren’t always effective.

      But that’s because they must follow legal procedure and not violate the law in dealing with criminals. Blodgett and his thugs do not concern themselves with such, which is frightful. It is likely the case that most of the knuckle draggers who post here are felons, and, therefore, disallowed from casting a ballot. For this, I’m grateful.

    I am not defending Mr. Urdahl, but the comments below give pause to think about how things really work here in Cerro Gordo county.

    So, Urdahl gets arrested and charged with harassing a senior citizen for leaving note and a fake rat at her door. Considering that video evidence exists, there can be no doubt that he will cop a guilty plea.

    Okay fine. That is as it should be.

    But over the years, as mentioned on this thread, Jay’s main political sponsor, Todd Blodgett, has gotten away, several times, with suborning assault against those he thinks don’t belong in Mason City.

    Some of the targets of this neo-Nazi had to be hospitalized, after being roughed up by his hired thugs, but no charges have ever been allowed to go through on any such count.

    People, this is what’s really crazy.

        I have coffee just about every week with a MC cop and a deputy Sheriff and we have talked about this a couple times. They are both a-okay with what Blodgett does, they say it makes their jobs all that much easier.

        We have got some people here that are not afraid of the law, that is no lie. But even they are afraid of others who don’t fear the cops and who will kick them into Mercy for a week, or longer.

          @ Armour, Ha Ha Ha. A week, or longer? Your way off, Armour, try about 3 weeks why dont you?

          Thats how long my boy was up to Mercy after this spoiled Nazi sicked some black one’s on him. Our son was on crystal meth, he got his buddy that works at Culver Hahn to borrow him $300 this was to pay his child support, but he went and blew it on more meth.

          Well this guy that borrows him the money, he is friends with Blodgett, gets him involve. Toddy boy, he tells Mike pay up, Mike tells him to F-O. Okay so a couple nights later 3 maybe 4 thugs, they jump our boy break his legs, arms, his jaw and 4 ribs. This was right in front of his house, 16th and Jefferson N.W. The assaulters, they were black as pitch, he said. And a couple teeth was knocked out to, and a concussion in his head.

          You would change your mind about Toddy Boy if it was your kid gets stomped by his paid thugs. Stay off this sight until you come to your senses.

            So. I’m just wondering, who’s fault is it that your son got beat up. I’m not condoning this kind of action, but it’s easier to blame somebody else. From what you posted, it’s obvious who’s fault it is, and you, and his “buddy” at work, know the answer.

            Calling someone out as a Nazi, then using “black one’s” in the same sentence. Umm….okay.

            But, it is O.K. for him to bad mouth Blodgett without even knowing if he was at fault. I don’t think so.

            Your right, I was just trying to be funny. I don’t like drug dealers any more then you do. A lot of posters on this site enjoy bad mouthing other posters, because they know they can get away with it. If somebody doesn’t like somebody, other posters jump on the band wagon to throw in their worthless 2 cents and know nothing about the subject. They are lost and their lives are meaningless, and they just want to apart of something.

    @ Jose’, ok you say Todd can be mean. Well when he does get mean it is to get people to do what they should of done before somebody had to be mean to get them to.

    Todd is my friend I go to narcotic anonomyous he is there to when he is in town. He has help lot’s of us, he does what the MCPD don’t want to, gets bad people to leave out of Mason.

    Why do you care if he pays people needs money this is money they need, to help with his good work. Some times, this has to be done to get bad people to up and leave, they wont leave out on their own count.

      Darcy, people like you scare me. You clearly are incapable of sound judgement.

      How you can defend Mr. Blodgett’s hiring financially vulnerable north Iowans to beat people up? No one should be the judge, jury, and the executioner around here, or any place else.

      Do you and Toddy boy smoke meth together, or just belong to the same gun club?

      @ Darcy, your comments are acutely alarming to me, and should be to anyone who cares about our county and the rule of law. It is absolutely chilling that you condone, if not celebrate, the fact of Mr. Blodgett’s employing ruffians to physically attack people he deems unworthy of living.

      Lamentably, it would do no good to complain to the police, or to our Republitard county Sheriff, as they, too, like what this dope-addicted, neo-Nazi does to those of whom he disapproves.

      Shame on you, Darcy. You are pure evil, just like Toddy boy.

      Tim Lathem he beat Urdahl like a drum thank’s be to God.

        Could of been Toddy boy, he always get somebody else do his dirty work for him. Todd has been the one behind alot of bad stuff ever since he come back, always pays people to do it, not him tho.

        But if Blodgett is the one behind this Jay will not rat him out, hahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!

          No way, Jose’. I know Blodgett, he would never waste his time on something so dumb.

          Stone was stupid and Jay is, too. Ya Todd can be mean, but his mean-ness always aims to do something that’s worth it to him to do.

          This thing was just dumb, we are shocked Urdahl would expose himself like this.

          Could not happen to a nicer guy, oh right.

      Unfortunately, yes. We report crimes – not all of them – but Mr. Urdahl is a NIACC board member and a decades-long elected official. He’s charged with a crime, it’s newsworthy.

        Ohhhh, I was unaware he is currently on the NIACC’s Board. At first, it just seemed like an old man doing something mischievous. Isn’t Jaywardena (sp) on the board, too? If I am not mistaken she was on the board of MCCSD when crooked Micich was the Superintendent of Mason City Schools and all the little dirty deals that went down, Of course, they knew nothing about it. -wink, -wink (If so, characters like this says a lot about NIACC Board of Education.)

          Urdahl is not on the NIACC Governing board, he is just on the Alumnic Advisory board.

          I agree… members of the school board from the Micich years ought to be investigated, emails pried into, etc etc, to see who was in on the alleged so-called outright rapage of the Mason City taxpayers by this possible no-doubt-about-it white collar criminal and her dubious cohorts who walk free every day amongst us acting as if nothing ever happened. Might be time to start public information requests of emails to/from Micich over those years.
