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.

“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.
I heard that our election results will now be outsourced. I think I heard Glenn Beck say this, but, not sure. How convenient for the thugs in power to steal our elections.
Somehow, I don’t think Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein will give a crap.
I miss Richard Nixon, dirty tricks and all.
Did you stop reading my post and reply after one sentence?
Um...bm? Don’t know that one, I think!
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.
The link is broken.
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.

See my #19. When caught, they usually say they were “just joking around.”
A group backed by S0ros is gearing up to steal the 2012 election for P_resident 0hbummer 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.
. . . . Article, then # 11 , # 15.
Working link to this article. . .
Don’t know why the link isn’t working.
Here it is again:
Did he also wind up with a Connecticut SSN and/or an electronic version of a long form birth certificate still with parts redacted?
How did Obama end up with a Connecticut Social Security number? Identity theft????
You might want to look at this, Lucy.
New Obama 2012 Campaign Flyer: “I was born in Hawaii to a Single Mother...”
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.
I bet ABC is working on a tell all segment for Nightline about this :)
That’s quite the feat when there’s only 7 networks.
(I know there’s probably more, but it wouldn’t be as funny.)
Ah, the Democrats. Who says they’re dishonest and unprincipled? I do.
Drudge has a tip box on the news page......Just sayin.
THIS ONE was caught...Message: We’re on to them.
Are there ANY honest Democrats??? ANY??? Name one....please.
Your link no longer works.
Happens all the time. Its gotten to the point i don’t like to post any longer.
