Skip to comments.House Offices Burglarized: All GOP, One Issa’s Committee
Posted on 05/19/2012 12:17:24 PM PDT by Texas Fossil
Congressional Republicans have been targeted by a crime wave this spring, with burglars curiously able to repeatedly break into offices without security noticing.
Despite security in the Hill office buildings, the offices of Reps. Jon Runyan (R-N.J.), Jerry Lewis (R-Calif.) and Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) were burglarized last month, with Runyans office hit twice. Also hit was the Oversight and Government Reform Committee office and the staff office for the Appropriations subcommittee on Homeland Security, both under control of the Republican majority.

Is is strange that only GOP Congressmen are targeted for theft. Is it stranger that all 3 are on a committee of ISSA?
Inquiring minds qestion.
” NOW. How can equipment vanish from secure areas in Congressional offices with 24 hr. security?”
They had keys.
“Is is strange that only GOP Congressmen are targeted for theft. Is it stranger that all 3 are on a committee of ISSA?”
When theives bat 1,000, it isn’t paranoia....they are trying to get Issa’s research.
Is it too soon for the modern-day Deep Throat to show up, whispering “Follow the money!!”??
Or in this case.”Follow the Muslim”
Yep, wonder if there is someone on GOP payroll being blackmailed/bought-off to do just that.
The Washington Post will be sending their two top ace reporters out to cover this story...NOT.
Keys are one thing, but video cameras do not blink. Unless turned off.

If you have keys, you can get info on video cameras too.
Follow the trail to Nancy Pelosi and her flying monkeys...
It’s ok, they’re just white rethuglicans anyway! They don’t have the same rights under the Just Us department of Mexican Murder.
Sounds like the congressmen need to install their own cameras.
How about a gang of GSA Plumber’s - as in Watergate Plumbers - seeking revenge?
“Nancy and her flying monkeys”
Dorothy, now look at what you have done!
Oh, my beautiful wicked world is melting, melting, melting.
On a different tack, it always seems that the Dems are able to staff the non-political positions of GAO, security, etc with Dems.
But even when the GOP is in the majority, the Dems still staff everything. I go back to Reagan days when my Congressman, Dan Rostenkowski, of the House Ways and Means committee controlled when and where civil service exams were given and who could get past his goons to take the exam for Dept of the Treasury, HHS, IRS, Social Security, etc.
The damage is always in the cover-up.
Someone is sending them a warning message
Bing Bing Bing, now that may be the real motive and the place to start looking. Who could have pulled it off.
Has the MSM found a way to blame conservatives for these break-ins? They blame us, they kiss dem butt... that’s about all the MSM is good for...
The MSM is a clear and present danger to the freedom of the nation. Has been so since the 1960’s.
Trust me on this. There will be NO Woodward & Berstein nor will their be a “deepthroat”. Also. there will be nothing but a BIG yawn from the mainstream media. Nothing more to see here folks, move along.
How about a Breitbart??
Only Gowdy is on Issa's Committee on Government Oversight and Reform -- which office was also burgled.
Lewis is the outgoing Chairman of the Appropriations Committee -- whose office was also burgled. He is retiring after this term.
Runyan serves on the Armed Services, Veterans Affairs and the Natural Resouces Committee.
Always a possibility — problem is, whatever that “Breitbart” character uncovers will be TOTALLY ignored by state-run media.
Guess I miss-read the report.
” whatever that Breitbart character uncovers will be TOTALLY ignored by state-run media. “
True - but you can bet your bippie that the person (Breitbart redux) who dares to try to get the word out will be character assasinated post-haste...
When a republican president takes over the political appointees change but the civil service underlings stay on and leak info, sabotage efforts, etc. to reduce the effectiveness of the appointee and there is nothing that can be done. It is a major weakness in the government.
Good! They’ve been stealing from us for years!
It is still a puzzling occurrence.
Could be that Dem offices were also burgled, but the the stuff that was taken couldn't be reported. Like drugs.
The Fourth Estate is a Fifth Column.
I can’t help but think that the stolen objects are cover for the Congressional equivalent of Sandy Burger stuffing his pants with original documents some years back.
Why oh why does the GOP always seem to show up at the gun fight...with The Country Club Rulebook.....and the Clubhouse lawyer....
Ding, ding, ding - we have a thread winnah!
If they find the perp or perps, let Runyan deal with them.
Two clues on how the Feds are doing on protecting us from Islamic terrorists: wide open borders for terrorists and their equipment and P.C. welcoming the Muslim Brotherhood to inflitrate the government on all levels, including homeland INsecurity.
They are not taking care of Congressional security or any security. Look at the sexual molestation program at the airports for a clue as to who the government’s real enemy is.
I hope they try to burglarize the freshman that sleeps in his office, and I hope he carries.
Holder’s getting desperate.
Probably a crack smoking government employee with a key.
Years ago such an employee was stealing shore power cables from the piers at the Norfolk Naval Station.
He was selling them to scrap dealers to satisfy his crack habit.
Agree totally - - he will be “Joe the Plumber” all over again.
Constructive Destruction might be the answer, even for government functions that are constitutional. Eliminate a department due to budget constraints. Terminate all the employees. (Proper notice and help in finding a real job, of course.)
Then start a totally new agency with new staff.
Anyone bold enough and inside enough to plan this burglary would know his way around security cameras. Nonetheless, I think the perp(s) will be caught, depending on how devoted the powers-that-be are to finding him/her/them.
There is probably a code that lets security know who is in the building when. Everyone in the Capitol building at the time of the burglaries will be interrogated until the process of elimination leaves the prime suspect(s).
These guards are not that well paid that $ couldn’t buy access; on the other hand, some political actors are so dedicated to their cause/candidate, no crime is beyond them.
Gives ya warm fuzzies knowing these people are in charge of our security.
We must remember that the hard line leftists will lie, cheat, steal or murder to advance their agenda. For those of us that think no way, they couldn’t manage that, there are more than enough like Van Jones, Jarrett, the Sunstiens, and the names just keep coming. There are at least one million of these dead philosophy zombies perfectly willing to threaten someone with death and carry it out when the threat does not work.
So.... are these break-ins done to show that they can reach anywhere?
Secret Service trying to get back on DumBO’s good side.
Remember, these Vile Vermin burned Palin's Church long ago. They can sometimes fool men, but God is not fooled or mocked. What Obozo has done in regard to Israel is not unnoticed.
