Pawlenty's prez campaign off to inauspicious start: 1st Iowa staffer arrested

Pawlenty Campaign Staffer Arrested in Iowa


The very first Iowa staffer hired by Republican presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty has been suspended without pay from the campaign after his arrest overnight.

24-year-old Ben Foster was arrested by the Polk County Sheriff's Department on charges of public intoxication and trespassing.

Des Moines television station KCCI reports Foster was arrested at about 3:00 a.m. Wednesday after a 15-year-old girl allegedly discovered Foster banging on the door of her Ankeny home.

Through the Pawlenty campaign, Foster issued the following statement:

"Last night, I made a very serious mistake. I take full responsibility for my actions. I want to apologize to all affected by my poor judgment. I especially apologize to the people who were disturbed during the incident and the arresting officers. I give my word that it will never happen again."

I was working on bad info, and I can't get back to correct it. I apologize for doing that; I really try to be sure of what I post.
