OKLAHOMA CITY Several days after discovering the headquarters of the Sooner Tea Party was burglarized over the Memorial Day weekend, organization leader Al Gerhart told Red Dirt Report late Thursday that he suspects it to be politically motivated.
As we noted here in a press release sent to the media late on May 31, Gerhart said the fact that stacks of records for the Sooner Tea Party and the Oklahoma Tea Party PAC, along with numerous business card files, a laptop with business records and other items were stolen and not expensive carpentry tools there in his wood shop, it struck him as odd.
It was just a strange robbery, Gerhart said, noting that Sooner Tea Party meetings are often held at his Oklahoma City carpentry shop.
He noted that useless computer cables were stolen and the contents of drawers dumped out. He said they are looking at video camera footage from a nearby business and have since beefed up security at his shop.
Additionally, the Oklahoma City Police Department has been taking the burglary seriously, as has local media with a story about the burglary appearing today in The Oklahoman and in other media outlets.
"The police even said that it was an unusual situation, considering the documents that were taken," he said.

Yes I thought the title was strange also. But after looking at it for the third time the title is trying to link the “threats” to the burglary..
Not a well written title at all!
This isn’t from state-run media. This is from someone’s blog. Sometimes amateur writers do a worse job than pros.
