    Exclamation Right wing nuts are getting violent: Colorado Democratic headquarters windows smashed

    A “vandalism spree” hit the Colorado Democratic Party headquarters in Denver today, where the “vandal allegedly used a hammer to smash” 11 windows. Party Chairwoman Pat Waak attributed the violence to the intensity surrounding the health care debate, saying, “Clearly there’s been an effort on the other side to stir up hate. I think this is the consequence of it.” Waak estimated the damage at approximately $11,000. The Denver Police Department reportedly has a man in custody regarding the incident. ThinkProgress obtained some pictures of the damage:

    Next time, fucking arrest them. Actually no, just shoot them. In the face. Get it over with. It's what they want.

    This is just dead wrong. But I am sick of the media only reporting stories that show violence or the potential for violence on one side.

    I read about two cases this week, that got zero press. Both involving bombings. One was about a plot to bomb the RNC. I think if had been a plot against the DNC every news outlet in th country would have picked it up. The men involved made explosives and planned to attack the RNC with them, an informant turned them in, they went to jail and now a woman is about to go on trial for threatening the informant's life.

    The second case was a St. Louis dem strategist, big in local politics, who set off a bomb that seriously injured a lawyer.

    Neither story was picked up by the national press. It's important to oppose domestic terror regardless of whether it has right or left ideology behind it.

    GOP CONVENTION PLOT CASE
    Woman accused of threatening bomb-plot informant

    Trial could begin in Austin next week.


    A Texas woman faces trial this month in Austin on charges she threatened to kill a government informant who infiltrated an Austin-based group that planned to bomb the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn., last fall.

    Katyanne Marie Kibby, 25, was indicted in June by a federal grand jury in Austin. She is accused of retaliating against Brandon Darby, the community activist-turned-informant who helped federal prosecutors win convictions against Bradley Neal Crowder, 24, and David Guy McKay, 23.

    Prosecutors say the e-mail threat was made Jan. 10. That was two days after Crowder reached a plea bargain with federal prosecutors in Minneapolis for his role in the plot to build Molotov cocktails and attack the GOP convention in September 2008.

    Crowder and McKay were part of a group of activists that had gone to the Twin Cities to take part in street demonstrations. The FBI had infiltrated the group with Darby. Crowder and McKay built eight of the gasoline firebombs but didn't use them, a fact law enforcement officials credited to Darby.

    Members of the Austin protest community heaped scorn on Darby, saying he had betrayed longtime friends and colleagues.

    Kibby, who lives in Houston, is free on bond. If convicted, she could face 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. She could not be reached for comment.

    Federal prosecutors and Kibby's public defender have about a week to reach a plea agreement. If they don't, her trial is to begin Aug. 31 in U.S. District Court in Austin.

    Neither her attorney, Jose Gonzalez-Falla, nor Assistant U.S. Attorney Gregg Sofer returned calls for comment. Darby, who lives near Austin, also did not return a call for comment.

    The single-count indictment says Kibby "did knowingly engage in conduct threatening bodily injury" to Darby. It says she sent an e-mail that threatened his life "for giving information to a law enforcement officer."

    The indictment doesn't say what was in the e-mail.

    Darby, originally from Houston, had earned a national reputation as an activist in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina struck in August 2005. He was a co-founder of the Common Ground Collective, whose members delivered food, water, supplies and medical care to people in the flood-ravaged city.

    But Darby said that he grew disenchanted with some beliefs and tactics used by more radical activists. That disenchantment led to contacts with the FBI, and in November 2007, federal agents asked him to work as an undercover informant.

    Federal agents asked him to infiltrate a loose-knit group of activists in Austin that included McKay, who did part-time graphics work at an ad agency, and Crowder, who worked in a sandwich shop.

    In the months leading up to the GOP convention in St. Paul, the FBI was concerned that some groups planning to converge on St. Paul had less-than-peaceful demonstrations in mind.

    Darby accompanied the group to St. Paul. McKay and Crowder later built eight Molotov cocktails, and alternately planned to bomb either a truck with a large TV screen or a parking lot used by law enforcement officers, according to later testimony.

    McKay and Crowder were charged in September. A little over a month later, Darby's work as an informant was disclosed by the Pioneer Press.

    Crowder pleaded guilty in a deal with prosecutors, but McKay took his case to trial. Darby was the key witness against him.

    When McKay testified in his own defense, he claimed Darby entrapped him. He told jurors that had it not been for Darby's urgings, he never would have built the Molotov cocktails.

    The jury couldn't reach a verdict and a judge declared a mistrial. Before a second trial was to begin, federal prosecutors said Crowder would be called to testify against McKay, who then accepted a plea bargain.

    Crowder was sentenced to two years in prison and is scheduled for release in May 2010.

    McKay was sentenced to four years in prison and is due to get out in April 2012.

    the other case now seems to be more personal than political. just a crazy who happened to be a dem. but I am surprised by the case above getting such little press. it definitely would have been big news if it had been targeted at the DNC.

    The bomb plot relating to the RNC happened last year, so I don't know why it's relevant at this point. There were so many news stories last fall about so many things, including all the protesters and journalists who were arrested at the Republican Convention for protesting. It's not really surprising that this story fell through the cracks.

    Interesting development:


    Report: Vandalism suspect had worked for candidate

    DENVER — A suspect in a vandalism at the Colorado Democratic headquarters was once a paid campaign worker for a Democratic candidate for the Legislature, according to public records.

    Maurice Schwenkler, 24, was arrested in Denver Tuesday on a charge of criminal mischief after windows were smashed at Democratic offices. Many of the windows displayed posters supporting health care reform, and party officials called it political vandalism.

    The Denver Post reported Wednesday that Schwenkler was also arrested in St. Paul, Minn., on the last day of the 2008 Republican convention on a charge of unlawful assembly.

    No details of that arrest or Schwenkler's activities at the time were immediately available.

    There was no phone number listed for Schwenkler and it wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney.

    The Post reported Schwenkler was paid $500 in November 2008 to walk door to door in support of Democrat Mollie Cullom, a candidate for the state House from Centennial.

    Cullom lost to Republican David Balmer.

    Campaign records show Schwenkler was among dozens of canvassers paid by a political committee called the Colorado Citizens' Coalition.

    Balmer said he suspects the vandalism might have been intended to make the Republican Party look bad.

    "This sounds like the type of Democratic tactic from the left fringe trying to make Republicans look mean-spirited," Balmer said. "In this case, it blew up in their face."

    The Democratic Party estimates the damage at $10,000. A second suspect was still at large.

    Denver Police said they don't know what motivated the suspects. The headquarters was unoccupied at the time and there were no injuries reported.

    Right. Because the Dems are the ones attempting to incite people to violence.
