Skip to comments.'08 race worker held in damage to Colorado Democratic HQ

One of two people suspected of shattering 11 windows Tuesday morning at the state Democratic Party headquarters has an arrest record and a history of helping a Democratic political candidate, public records show.
Police said that about 2:20 a.m., 24-year-old Maurice Schwenkler, now in custody, and an at-large accomplice took a hammer to the picture windows displaying posters touting President Barack Obama and his health care reform efforts.
Early Tuesday, Democratic Party chairwoman Pat Waak said the damage to her building in Denver's art district was a consequence of "an effort on the other side to stir up hate." She tempered her statement after Schwenkler's political history was revealed.
"What I've been saying is there is a lot of rhetoric out there from both sides of the spectrum," Waak said. "That's what's been disturbing to me. People are saying a lot of things not appropriate for civil discourse."
For weeks, people on both sides of the health care debate have rallied across the country.
Schwenkler is charged with criminal mischief and is to make his first appearance in Denver County Court today.
He is accused of doing an estimated $11,000 in damage and could face a felony conviction.
On the last day of the 2008 Republican National Convention, he was charged with misdemeanor unlawful assembly in St. Paul, Minn.

Schwenkler didn’t do a very good job. A proper operative would have burned down the building.
A “Race Worker”? Is that like a Race Baiter?
Thread is here:
I thought the same. Badly written headline.
When I read first read about this, I KNEW it was going to be blamed on the GOP but was done by Dems. Call me Claire Voyant....
She was in on it. Otherwise why would she say this without knowing ?
She “tempered” her remarks about the anti-Obamacare “side” stirring up “hate”? No, she got caught lying, and had no choice but to mumble something about “both sides”. It wasn’t “both sides”, lady, it was YOUR side.
Whatever happened to guy who held sign that said death to obama?
i know fbi detained him. i always thought he was a dem plant.
Yet another “Reichstag” incident. More to come....
They got race workers now?
If you look at the perp’s picture in the article, he/she could be the same person.
should have said ‘08 ELECTION worker
whoa....you are right. I missed that.
Knee jerk response to spout Dem talking points by a Libtard 0bama Kool-Aid drinker?
It is par for the course that liberals would blame conservatives for their mess, even though they are to blame.
What amazes me is how consistent this behavior is.
Are we not allowed to know the name of the other person they are looking for?
