Teen Confesses to Vandalizing Grimm’s Campaign Office, Police Say

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Police say a teenager has admitted vandalizing the campaign office of New York Congressman Michael Grimm.

NYPD spokesman Paul Browne says the eighth grader told a school counselor that he and a friend had broken a window over the weekend at the office on Staten Island.

The spokesman said Tuesday that the boy was expected to be charged as a juvenile with criminal mischief.

Grimm had reported the incident as a break-in. He also has alleged that someone had tampered with a computer server containing sensitive campaign information.

Browne said investigators were still examining the server.

I'm shocked that a GOP elected official , or his campaign staff, would have misrepresented the vandalism! So the police found no evidence of computer hacking? Anyone who saw the newspaper photos of the Grimm office broken windows would have wondered how any creature larger than an elf could have climbed through the openings to destroy the hard drives--as alleged.

And I seem to recall that no WMD's were found in Iraq and the "smoking gun/mushroom cloud" forecast by Rice, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Powell, and their staff didn't materialize either. Those staffers are now Romney's advisors. Hmm.
