Police arrest former activist suspected of Arizona Democratic Party headquarters arson

Phoenix police have arrested Matthew Egler, a Democratic activist who party officials say has had a long and troubled history with the Maricopa County Party over the years, for the fire that destroyed Arizona Democratic Party's headquarters last week.

The fire ruined historical political memorabilia and party infrastructure ahead of Tuesday's primary election.

After a nearly weeklong investigation, Phoenix police on Wednesday identified Egler, 29, of Peoria, in connection with the fire set to the party's headquarters. The fire occurred after midnight on Friday, last week.

In announcing the arrest, police released footage of a dark car parked near the north side of the building, and a person lighting the fire outside of the building. As the fire grows, the person walks back to the car.

1. Interesting that he's decided to go this route.

I donít think Bernie would approve of his actions.

3. Here is a TV News report on him.

He needs to go to prison for a long time. He is dangerous and is calling for the murder of local democrats and police.
