The suspect is a dem operative.
They usually are. If it's not an Islamofacist, you can bet your bottom dollar it's some wacked out liberal kook.
Article does not say he is a Dem operative but it would not surprise me. Also a moron I guess since he should have known you can;t get away with a stunt like this.
Imagine though if some right winger threatened a Demo gathering. It would be huge news and the lefties would be screaming about the climate of hate, etc.
I did some research and it shows he's a dem.
Just another democrat doing what democrats do best - trying to destroy good people.
Yep, a Dem—and on the town’s planning and zoning commission.
Thanks for the update. Does not surprise me at all. Since I assume the “news” media are not going to play this up the way they would if a conservative did it, I wonder if McMahon should make an ad about it to get some sympathy or show how dirty the Dems play. But I suppose she is better off continuing her excellent ads about creating jobs and pounding the Dems for hurting the job market.
