Thieves hit Democrats' office

By Betty Parker

Lee County's Democratic headquarters had its second break-in in almost
as many years this week.

Thieves ignored computer equipment and other valuables, and took the
party's financial records and voter data, said Lyndia Bradley, Lee
County's Democratic chairwoman.

"This was a very targeted, purposeful break-in," she said Wednesday.

"They were obviously interested in certain things, not things you sell
on the street for money."

Computers were vandalized, but there was no sign of forced entry.

The office is located on Park Meadow Drive in south Fort Myers.

Bradley said the office is not staffed daily this time of year, and
she and others were last in the office March 1.

The theft was discovered Monday.

The party's headquarters had a similar break-in shortly before the
2004 elections when the office was in a different location near the
intersection of Fowler Street and Colonial Boulevard.

Thieves vandalized the office and stole records and computers in that
incident.

And just before the November 2004 presidential election, vans used to
carry voters to register to vote, and cast early ballots had their
tires slashed outside Kerry-Edwards headquarters in Royal Palm Square
in Fort Myers.

The vans carried pro-Democrat signs and bumper stickers.

Democratic campaign worker Annie Estlund remembered that incident
because she volunteered in that office.

"There's just been so much of this kind of thing," she said, recalling
the office break-ins.

"It's hard to think politics has come to this."

Well, let's see - your post consists of an entire article with one sentence tacked onto the end, you've carefully crafted the subject line for reasons I will not speculate, but have some good guesses - I haven't liked this behaviour in the past in the Politics forum (feel free to go back and check) and I haven't changed.

What you're doing is MAYBE a half step above trolling - and that's not nearly far enough. I'm not interested in seeing it here, no matter which political view it happens to be.

By the way, "this thread is about politics" works about as well as an excuse as "this thread is about pro wrestling" would be for some of those crappy threads in Pro Wrestling that STILL end up banished. Let's just say I know it when I see it and let there be no doubt that I'm still the dictator when it comes to making that determination.

You can click a link to watch a 20-second advertisement, and that gives you a free 24-hour pass to Salon.com. That way, you can read the entire article. EDIT: They've changed it a bit in the last few months.
