Bwah-HAH!1 It takes a thief to... ($100K "heirlooms" burgled from ISSA's pad)
Why am I thinking of Kevin KLINE staging a burglary into Archie's home in A Fish Called Wanda?!1 I would ask for a PhotoShop of ISSA in a cat burglar's mask, but some of his mug shots are probably available. "Heirlooms", yaas, *that's* the ticket!1
Gawker’s headline: Some bold citizen has stolen $100K worth of jewelry from Rep. Darrell Issa's California home.
$100K in Jewelry Stolen From Calif. Rep. Issa Home
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
VISTA, Calif. (AP) — San Diego County authorities say $100,000 worth of jewelry has been stolen in a burglary at the home of California U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa (EYE'-suh).
U-T San Diego (http://bit.ly/TFNeBo ) says more than 50 items, including watches, rings, earrings and bracelets, were taken from the Vista home on Nov. 29. No arrests have been made.
An Issa spokesman says the pieces were irreplaceable family heirlooms.
The Republican who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is one of the wealthiest members of Congress. He made his fortune with a company that produces car alarms and other auto security products.

7. A rotten insurance company could buy a politician that way...
... or it could be plain old insurance fraud; hide the stuff, give it to a girlfriend, bookie, drug dealer, etc., and then claim it was stolen.
This should be investigated carefully.
