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.

I had a gut feeling to this was the work of a lefty moonbat, because vandalizing campaign HQs are among their favorite things to do, right after killing unborn babies.
Including you, lady.
He’s going to be wildly popular in GenPop.
I’m curious as to what their responses were..........
I, too, am requesting coverage of this -— specifically to their reactions to the news that it was lefty perps.
In my haste I misread the initial story. I thought that this dealt with an vandalism that occurred to a DNC office during the ‘08 election season, not the more recent crime.
It doesn’t matter however, because I will use this incident to my advantage.
I have three bets going on. One is with a casual acquaintance that purports himself to be a dhimmicrat but I do not believe him. I believe that he is a contrarian who delights in arguing with people. He is also a gambler of sorts. The other two bets were with friends of his that I doubt I’ll ever see again.
When I see him I am going to remind him of the bet (if he doesn’t remind me first!) and offer to double-down. If he takes me up on it - and I suspect that he will, I will then recite the sordid details of this story.
Although it won’t directly affect the bet I’m sure that it will eat at him.
Anyone know Maurice’s screen name at DumRat Underground?
He/she is a community organizer
BTW, I think Ariel Attack and Schwenkler are the same person
I finally caught on to that. Ignorance was bliss.
Ariel Attack or some variation comes to mind.
Right objective, wrong side. Just another little Reichstag...
