STATEN ISLAND, N.Y., Sept. 24 (UPI) -- The campaign headquarters for a New York City congressman was burglarized overnight and police say some computers may have been tampered with.
Rep. Michael Grimm, a Republican, said the burglars broke through two windows, possibly to cover up having deleted several computer hard drives with election-related data on them. Grimm told the Staten Island (N.Y.) Advance his campaign had backed up the data regarding polling, voter registration and identification just hours prior to the break-in and no actual data was lost.
"Whoever did this, the people responsible are very ignorant, and they don't understand that this is not just an attack against me or my campaign. This is an attack against a federal campaign office, which is an attack on our democracy as a whole. It's an attack against what we stand for, for free elections," Grimm, a first-term incumbent, said.

What did the president know, and when did he know it?
Thanks Free ThinkerNY.
God Almighty why the hell haven’t the Republicans learned that the RATS will break in ,vandalize ,steal , do whatever they can to sabotage Republicans .
When will the GOP leadership at least get half a damn clue & lock stuff up a a friggen safe that is bolted to the floor.
I’d look for the union label.
follow the money
Well said, Congressman Grimm. Hopefully, as former FBI man, Grimm has enough clout to see that the case gets the attention from law enforcement it deserves.
I would suspect some far left bunch as the perpetrators, with a self-righteous denial coming from the local Democratic organization.
BTW, this is not the first time a Republican Staten Island congressman's office has been vandalized. Back in the early 1990s, Susan Molinari's office had its windows shot through by a gunman. But that was not during the height of a campaign.
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you must threaten to report me to the Mods if I dont add you to the list...
Move along. Nothing to see. Just a bump in the road.
Although this Staten Island incident and Watergate may appear on first glance to have similarities, the main goal of the Watergate break-in may have had little to do with sabotaging George McGovern's presidential campaign.
G. Gordon Liddy, who did some jail time in the aftermath of Watergate, wrote a book in which he discussed a prostitution ring operating out of the burglarized DNC headquarters. John Dean was apparently heavily involved romantically with one of those women, and the impetus for the break-in, according to Liddy, was to destroy evidence of that relationship, which, if it were ever to be made public, would be a major election year scandal that the Nixon White House was trying to avoid. Dean later sued Liddy for defamation in connection with Liddy's Watergate theory and the case was dismissed.
Dunno, a Yahoo search found it here:
Grimm has a 10 point lead in a recent poll.
I never heard that, fascinating. I'd hate to think that many '74 smugbags like Patrick Leahy are STILL in office because John Dean was dating a hooker.
Dean didn’t just date her, he married her (Maureen). Mo was a ho. Type in “Maureen Dean” and “prostitute” into Google and you won’t come up empty-handed.
Oh that’s okay again, who cares about a democrat landslide as long as Dean found true love. :-S
Not surprised. That district (Staten Island plus a small predominantly white segment of Brooklyn) has voted Republican for Congress since the 1980s, with the exception of 2008, when Vito Fossella was forced to resign because of a sex scandal.
With Zero at the top of the 'Rat ticket, the lack of enthusiasm among the Dems will be felt down the ballot in the district.
Wow. That adds a whole ‘nother level of courage (or brass) to her standing by him him in court.
That was a beautiful set-up, wasn’t it ?
