Through the window?

Inward or outward?

Looks more like a rock or brick did that. And way more broken glass outside than in.

Of course the DPD recovered the projectile from the wall inside the office, right?

Exactly right. The perfect false flag to try to smear this as the work of some angry tea party type (without any evidence) to gin up support for 0zer0, when it probably is the work of some Occupy Wallstreet Thug from Chicago. Just in time for the weekend news shows to get Lame Stream Media talking about anything but Bite Me and 0zer0’s Libya fiasco.

Probably a cat fight between two of the Dim staffers. One limp-wristed a stapler at the other one, missed, and hit the window.

Look for the slug...or the lack of one.

I hope they look closely to determine whether the alleged bullet went in or out the window.

No doubt. I am convinced 99% of these stories are Dems doing this themselves. I expect many more if the trend continues to be our friend.

It looks like a nice newer office, probably in a nice area of Denver - and there was a drive by shooting in the middle of the afternoon ??

Ayone know what the area is like ?

I can agree.

The fact is, we are nearing election. These..progressives...**cough**, will do or say anything to discredit a challenger.

I expect this sort of thing and much more.

But I WILL NOT BE SWAYED.

"Looks more like a rock or brick did that. And way more broken glass outside than in."

How right you are - gunfire from outside the place would not cause that big a hole, or the big pile of glass IN FRONT of the window.

The ballistics test will show the bullet came from a Fast and Furious firearm, which, when recovered, will have the prints of both Ward Churchill and those of a lesbian who makes up hate crimes against herself. Thanks Free ThinkerNY.

Where have we see this before? Oh yeah in 2008. A loony Dem who caused the vandalism:



Fake hate crime in Denver: Dems stand by smear, vandal’s story gets weirder

"Last night, I told you about the fake political hate crime here in Colorado at the Denver Democrat Party headquarters involving one “Maurice Schwenkler.”

This hammer-wielding person has been charged with felony mischief. This person’s accomplice is still on the loose.

Eleven windows were smashed, causing $11,000 in damage.

Schwenkler is a far Left nutball and transgender activist who guys by “Ariel Attack”. As part of Schwenkler’s work for the SEIU-tied 527 group Colorado Citizens Coalition, he/she canvassed for a state Democratic candidate, Mollie Collum. ..."

Great find - great point!

The guy 'still on the loose' just might be the prep!

“Looks like there’s more glass outside than inside.”

Either that, or there was a highly localized snowfall right outside the office at about the same time.

Exactly what I was thinking.

First clue: conservatives don’t do this kind of thing. So that narrows it down to—a gang of extremist RINOs? I don’t think so.

You have to figure Ubama campaign offices would be likely gathering places for thugs and drug dealers, etc.
Maybe somebody was just pissed because their welfare check was late.

No doubt the police lab will conveniently find two micro-inscriptions on the bullet :

(1) "IF FOUND, PLEASE RETURN TO THE DENVER TEA PARTY."

(2) "PROPERTY OF THE DENVER TEA PARTY."

Is that a double layer glass? Strange way to break if it was a bullet and I agree with your observation, way more glass utside than inside.

It’s double-pane tempered glass. Sometimes that stuff will break on its’ own for no apparent reason, or just from a rapid temperature change.
