Police report says break-in at Democratic Party HQ suspicious

SEATTLE (AP) - A preliminary police report suggests an Election Day burglary at the headquarters of the state Democratic Party might be something other than a routine break-in.

The majority of items taken belonged to important campaign workers and the burglar attempted to make it look like a random crime, the report states.

Police are still investigating and won't speculate on why the office was targeted.

"Unless we know who the suspects are, it's kind of hard to figure out a motive," spokesman Mark Jamieson said Thursday.

Workers arriving about 5:30 a.m. Nov. 6 found the front door smashed. Police secured the building and found offices ransacked. In addition to the Democratic Party, the building held offices for Jay Inslee's campaign for governor and Organizing for America, the campaign to re-elect President Barack Obama.

A window had been broken to get into a director's office and confidential files were rifled through and moved. Other offices that were hit included the media coordinator and fundraising section. A trash can was dumped and used to haul away the stolen property.

1. What would be an "unsuspicious break-in?"

3. Way to miss the point

it was suspicious for political sabotage and/or future blackmail, not simple robbery.

Sheesh.

4. Then they should have said "politcally motivated" or "not a burglary." I got the point, the way

it was phrased was stupid.

5. This article is why I generally ignore titles and read the article.

Titles are at best meaningless and often misleading.
