Former Obama Staffer Busted for Stealing Iowa Secretary of State's Identity
TheIowaRepublican.com ^ | 1/20/2011 | Kevin Hall

Posted on 01/20/2012 10:10:31 PM PST by bigred08

Barack Obama’s 2008 Iowa New Media Director was arrested Friday for attempting to use the identities of Secretary of State Matt Schultz, and/or his brother Thomas, with the intent to falsely implicate the Secretary Schultz in illegal or unethical behavior. Zach Edwards, 29, of Des Moines, currently works for Link Strategies, a Democrat-affiliated organization with ties to Iowa Senator Tom Harkin. Edwards is the Director of New Media for Link Strategies.

The Secretary of State’s office discovered the alleged crime and reported it to authorities. Edwards turned himself in to the Iowa DCI agents Friday afternoon. He was charged with identity theft, a misdemeanor, and booked into the Polk County jail. Edwards posted $2,000 bail and was released later on Friday. He faces up to two years in prison.

Obama staffer trying to “create news” by impersonating a Republican via identity theft.

Seems like they just can’t stop their “Fast and Furious” attempts on all levels.

Impeach and Remove. I repeat, you don’t think the White House wasn’t running this? Impeach and Remove.

Is the Iowa sec of state a republican?
Seems to me that identity theft particularly theft with intent to harm a person’s reputation should be a felony not a misdemeanor.

I bet Democrat operative Zach Edwards has laptops chock-filled with child porn.
I hope the feds turn that scumbag’s life upside down. Well, okay.. this punk will obviously be shielded and given protection by Ubama’s feds, but maybe Iowa’s attorney general has some integrity and can go after this guy.

Why is “identity theft” a misdemeanor?

You potentially rip off someone for a life of achievement and that’s a misdemeanor?

You hold a gut a knife point for $20 and its a felony.

WTF?

This is going to be the dirtiest, most corrupt election of our lifetimes. Democrats have NOTHING to run on, other than hate and fear.

This is ONLY the very beginning. We haven’t seen anything, yet.

For a split second I thought it was “Obama busted for using fake identity”

TIP OF THE ICEBERG.

Looks like we have a preview of what's in store for us. Obamas thugs will leave no illegal stone unturned in order to steal the election.

No matter how grievous the offense, leftists always think of themselves as “Merry Pranksters.” Hopefully someone, somewhere, has the guts to crack down on the “jokers.”

ID theft is a recourse for the crusading social democrat in the computer age. “I’m sorry judge but I had to do it to protect the people against our enemy.” Is is a “ends justify the means” court plea.

Actually, that was a pretty sophisticated plan organized by a pretty smart fellow (G. Gordeon Liddy). If some building security guard didn't happen to notice a small piece of tape on a door frame (placed there to keep the doorknob bolt from latching), it may never have been discovered.

Pair this up with the eight New York Democrats who plead guilty to vote fraud and you begin to see a pattern of Democrats willing to do anything to tamper with the upcoming election.

Rather brazen, even for a liberal sociopath. They are losing their cool over losing control of the Top 3 Branches of government, which they will in ten short months.

To go from trembling on the hideous brink of achieving their Marxo-Dictatorship three years ago to losing it all in one election, this will drive a significant percentage of the deeply committed right over the brink... not that they started off too far from that edge anyway.

These imbeciles are about to rupture, and it won't be pretty. There isn't a depth to which they are unwilling to stoop. Gonna get ugly.
