Dave Weiler (b. April 1, 1965) is a former Republican member of the North Dakota House of Representatives, representing the 30th District from 2000 to 2012.

Weiler is a golf professional. His professional experience also includes real estate and seasonal land man.

Weiler earned his BA in business administration from Dickinson State University. He and his wife, Nicole, have four children.[1]

2010 domestic assault controversy

Arrest

On March 11, 2010 Weiler was arrested after his wife called the authorities to say that he had punched her in the face. It is the second time in less than a year that Weiler was arrested for domestic assault. In April 2009 he pled guilty to pushing his wife to the ground in a parking lot and received a deferred sentence and probation. He was ordered to get a psychological evaluation and counseling for domestic violence.[2]

Recall campaign

Following his second arrest, Bismark folksinger Kris Kitko attempted a recall campaign against Weiler. She needed at least 1,902 petition signatures from voters in his district in order to force a recall election. Signatures needed to be gathered by April 9 in order to add the recall to the June 8 primary ballot. Otherwise it would most likely have been a special election on the November 2 general ballot.[3]

Kitko wrote a song critical of Weiler entitled "You Can Beat Your Wife," and made it free to download on her site.

Charges dropped

In July 2010, prosecutor Ladd Erickson moved to dismiss the charge against Erickson, citing additional evidence and a May 2010 statement by Weiler's wife that the representative had not hit her.[4]
