ANKENY, Iowa -- A 15-year-old girl found a campaign worker from Alabama banging on her Ankeny family's back door early Wednesday morning.

Chloe Steward told KCCI she heard her dog barking around 3 a.m. and went to investigate. She said she found a man trying to get into the back door.

"His arm was in my back door, trying to get in and I screamed and went upstairs to my parents room and I continued screaming," said Chloe Steward.

The family then called police.

34. Yeah, right "TEEE-PAWWWW" (sorry, THAT won't make you seem more hip, dude),
we can already see how you staff up, and who you hire, and who THEY hire.

That'd be just ducky in the ol' White House, now, wouldn't it?

8. I'm just glad Timmeh Pee isn't in MN anymore.
I'm sorry that he's infecting the rest of the states and Canada.

What with him and Michelle Bachmann, it's like Minnesota has become the hillbilly haven of the north - with all due apologies to hillbillies, banjo players, and brewers of fine shine everywhere.

Chloe Steward told KCCI she heard her dog barking around 3 a.m. and went to investigate. She said she found a man trying to get into the back door...

"His arm was in my back door, trying to get in and I screamed and went upstairs to my parents room and I continued screaming," said Chloe Steward. He shoved his arm in here and kept touching the wall, looking for something. I dont know what he was looking for."

Dad grabbed his gun from a safe and went downstairs.

The guy was still trying to come in when my husband had a gun on him. My husband must have realized that something is not right hes drunk of something, said Stacey Steward, Chloes mother.

The guy trying to break in was Benjamin Foster, an employee of Tim Pawlenty's campaign.

"I especially apologize to the people who were disturbed during the incident"

Disturbed is when you're awakened by someone's loud music or their dog barking,this guy freaking traumatized that poor young girl and put the family through a nightmare.
