Skip to comments.Former Obama Staffer Busted for Stealing Iowa Secretary of State's Identity
Posted on 01/20/2012 10:10:31 PM PST by bigred08
Barack Obamas 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 States 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.

FILE THIS UNDER:
“News you won’t EVER see on NBC/MSNBC”
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.
What did Obama know, and when did he know it?
I bet he makes fake birth certificates too! LOL
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.
And the hits just keep on coming.
snip—”A group backed by Soros is gearing up to steal the 2012 election for President Obama and congressional Democrats by installing left-wing Democrats as secretaries of state across the nation. From such posts, secretaries of state can help tilt the electoral playing field.”
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”
Must have been something subconscious.
I’m the media and I’m not interested. :)
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.
ALL POINTS BULLETIN: ALL STATES BEWARE, it has begun.
The unvetted president has unvetted people surrounding him.
“I hope the feds turn that scumbags life upside down”
Surely, you jest. It’s just as likely that Holder GAVE the perp the passwords.
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.”
Maybe wishful thinking but this reminds me of a third-rate burglary run by a bunch of amateurs back in the early 70s.
