RNC Delegate Took Woman To Hotel Room, Was Robbed
WCCO.com ^ | 9/16/08 | AP

Posted on 09/16/2008 8:42:03 AM PDT by ButThreeLeftsDo

A delegate to the Republican National Convention says he was robbed of more than $120,000 after he took a woman to his Minneapolis hotel room.

The Denver man told police he met the woman in a bar, then took her to his hotel room at Hotel Ivy. Police say that once there, the woman made the man drinks and told him to get undressed.

The 29-year-old delegate told police that was the last thing he remembered.

Wave money around hoping to pick up a high priced hooker and you will get screwed.

Police say that when he woke, the woman was gone, and the man was missing money, jewelry and other things. The missing items included a $30,000 watch, a $20,000 ring and a $5,000 necklace.

OK that's $55K, what was the other $65K? Cash? Rich Republicans!

She had just come from George’s room and since he didn’t have any money, she took his clothes and left him handcuffed to the bed.

Just goes to show you stupidity is not partisan.

I once had to vouch for a legislator at a security check in DC. His wallet had been taken by the “lady” he spent the evening with.

In other news a DNC Delegate took a woman back to his hotel room - Entire Party feels betrayed. Barney Frank is still weeping hysterically. Nancy Pelosi is shocked (but that could just be her normal expression).

Woman: Eight dollars? Eight dollars?

George: What are you doing? You’re robbing me?

Women: I wasted my whole morning with you for eight dollars?

George: Wait, wait a second, what are you doing?

Woman: I’m taking your clothes.

George: No, that’s my only suit. It cost me 350 dollars. I got it at Moe Ginsburg .

Woman: Bye George.

George: No wait, you can’t just leave me here! Will I see you again?

Q.”who keeps 120k in cash in a hotel room?’

A1. Someone who went to the convention primarily to drink and fornicate.
A2. It wasn’t all cash. Half was expensive jewelry.
A3. I wonder if there’s an insurance angle here.

IF he is telling the truth about the value, that doesn't even account for half. Why do I have a feeling he is inflating the values?

This is almost too “good” to be true.

All the elements of a good urban legend.

I can’t definitively say it’s not- but I say that it smells.

If it *was* true, I’m betting that the police report would already be up on “The Smoking Gun”.

Moron, indeed!

The bling was worth $55k (unless it is an insurance fraud scam); but why was he carrying over $65k in cash? It is his right to carry all the cash he wants, but not very smart when plastic is so much safer.

I think the credibility factor just went to zero. If the guy was wearing that kind of jewelry and didn't have better sense than hooking up with a stranger from a bar, ...

And where was the other $65,000? A belly-button diamond?

I'm betting the guy visited a Native American casino or back-ally craps game and lost that money.

Yeah, especially for people who are prone to bringing women they just met back to their hotel room and letting her fix a drink for him. He also might want to think about getting some cheap bling for these occasions. I don't know about Denver, but here in NYC there are Nigerian guys selling bling off folding tables on the sidewalks, who could set him up with a gigantic super-shiny watch/ring/necklace ensemble for $50 bucks.

He is 29 years old and he has a $30,000 watch. He has the connections that make him a delegate to the RNC. He doesn’t have the brains to know that you don’t take a floozy you hook up with in a bar back to your own hotel room.

Sounds like someone born into money and but not raised with common sense.

The problem with experience as a teacher is that it gives the test before it provides the lesson. This was a very expensive lesson.

Did the woman look like a bag lady who resembles Walter Matthau?

Maybe he picked up Barbra Streisand and she sold him Four Tickets to tonights performance, and airfare...That would be about $120k...

He should check his pockets for four Obama-Streisand tix...

What he is leaving out of the story is:

He had that much cash because he was a loser and assumed she was a hooker.

Police say that when he woke

The man should be thankful that he woke. A novice at this type of theft could easily miscalculate the dosage.

You can be reasonably sure he was displaying the jewelery during his time at the bar.

I will say this in his favor, it takes courage to admit how foolish he was.

More information......

http://www.twincities.com/ci_10472581?source=most_viewed

“The haul included a $30,000 watch, a $20,000 ring, a necklace valued at $5,000, earrings priced at $4,000 and a Prada belt valued at $1,000, police said.

The victim was identified as Gabriel Nathan Schwartz, 29, of Denver, a single attorney and a fixture in Colorado Republican politics. He was one of the state’s delegates to the convention this month in St. Paul.

Reached by phone at his law office Monday, Schwartz said that because the case still was under investigation, “I think at this point, I don’t want to make a comment on it.”

During the convention, Schwarz wasn’t shy about talking to the media. In an Associated Press article about Sen. John McCain’s acceptance speech, Schwartz was quoted as saying that as far as oratorical skills go, McCain “has more experience in his little pinkie” than Democratic nominee Barack Obama.”
