Posted on 04/11/2008 4:48:54 AM PDT by John W
Fire officials are investigating an early morning fire that destroyed Senator Hillary Clinton's Terre Haute Campaign Headquarters.
The fire broke out just after 12:30 Friday morning at the Westaff office building on 3rd Street.
"When they arrived on the scene, flames were shooting out the tops of it, and the vehicle in front was also involved in the fire," Terre Haute Fire Department Public Information Officer John Gardner said.
Gardner said two women were inside Clinton's headquarters when the fire started.
They got out safely, but one of the women's cars caught fire.
"It was really burning. The front part hadn't caved in yet. When it caved in, it fell on her car. Her car was on fire inside and out," George Leach, a witness said.
Despite Former President Bill Cinton's visit to the Wabash Valley, investigators said they aren't jumping to any conclusions just yet as to what may have caused the fire at the Clinton Headquarters.
"At this point all we know is that there was a structure fire. We put it out, and we are going to do our investigation," Gardner said.
No word yet on where the fire started or the cause.
We have been told that the secret service has been on the scene investigating.
A spokeswoman for Clinton had no comment this morning, but says she expects to release something shortly.
Hmmmmm. Accident or design?
The other alternative is that Mrs. Clinton is so hot in Indiana, she's on fire!!!
Well if the case goes without anyone being incarcerated I say by design...If they do find someone, I say he will turn out to be a right wing fanatical....just sayin ya never know how these people roll....
You may be right...plus there is the burned out and homeless sympathy vote...
Women & minorities most deeply affected.........
Great, I can’t wait for the hue and cry blaming the “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy” and when it turns out to be a rabid Obama supporter, that fact will be quietly swept under the rug. In fact, the Obama supporter will probably be a “former Republican.”
Things that make you go Hmmmmmm.......
Sounds like the Religion of Peace to me. Probably Farakhan’s boys.
*Insert joke here*
“two women were inside Clinton’s headquarters when the fire started.”
Maybe the fire was started by misogynists.
Hmmmmmmm . . . . . . . . could this be her way of paying another unpaid campaign bill to keep it from going public . . . . . . . and into collection?
I think there is a movie here...kinda like “going to White Castle” but better. One of the women (fictionally) was a Karl Rove associte and the other was a McCain associate...and suddenly at some point in the pro-Hillary conversation...they both realized each other’s hidden agenda...and started whoomping on each other...trigger the scented candle (pine, of course) to fall and set fire to the office. Their fight continued until the fire raged...and Karl, the nigh-watchman for the lumberyard across the street called it in. Later, Karl aided the Rove-associate and the McCain associate...taking them to Dunkin Donuts and revealing that he was a Obama-associate who had been watching and tapping into phone lines for weeks...and knew both were “fake”.
Oh, just great. Now us Hoosiers will get blamed for this.
What do you mean “insertion joke here”...
What, no sprinklers?
Not necessarily. There was a crooked woman working in the Tennessee license bureau who got busted in an FBI case for knowing selling legit driver's licenses to illegal alien middle Eastern men who drove down from NYC AFTER the WTC attacks.
She was arrested on a Friday (if I recall), out on bail Sunday morning, and dead of a gasoline spraying fire bomb placed in her back seat by Sunday night. The man who coordinated the sale was the prior owner of the car she was driving.
As far as I know, no one was ever charged in her murder. The aliens were sentenced to time served waiting for their hearings. Not sure what became of the man who coordinated the sale (he was arrested at the same time she was).
No conviction or "leads" doesn't mean that it wasn't arson.
That’s a good plot. You should offer yourself as a Hollywood writer.
Check the beneficiary on the insurance policy.
And only yesterday Hillary donated a slightly bloodstained carpet to the office.
Or they left the coffee maker on.
...Banned Man Walkin...
I wonder how many inconvenient facts were destroyed in that fire.
You can bet that any document or other evidence demanded in some future court action will have been lost in this tragic fire in Indiana...
One of those Wright wing ‘altar boys’?

There. Fixed it.
Well, I can tell by your game, youre gonna start a flame
Love, baby, baby
Im not gon choke from the smoke, got me tightenin up my stroke
Do you feel it, girl, yeah
Don’t have the money to pay the rent? Burn it down.
Or a tornado someplace.
...yep...I was in Terre Haute about three weeks ago...
Sympathy ploy - Clinton style.
What ever became of that Clinton supporter who held people hostage with a knife at a campaign office?
Were they able to save the crackpipes?
And Hillary's campaign offices are notorious for being behind in their rent. I wonder if/how much they had the HQ insured for.
I believe he was promoted.
Why is it when Clinton is on the downslide, she finds disaster of some sort to make herself the victim in the news again?
-maybe she just needed to collect some insurance money for her exanimate campaign...
Well whatever, he seems to have disappeared.
"At least we got Terre Haute"
Nah, just a couple racist republicans that mistook the headquarters for a black church.
No word yet on where the fire started or the cause.....
Sniper “fire” no doubt!
Violation of the indoor smoking ban.
I went to Yahoo News and did a search on clinton fire - numerous thumbnail photos came up, but when you click on each one - it says the page has been removed.
Whazzup with that!??
