A shot was fired at an Obama campaign office in Denver, Colorado on Friday.
The Denver Post reports nobody was injured even though, according to Denver police spokeswoman Raquel Lopez, “people were inside the offices when the incident occurred.” Lopez said Denver police had a “person of interest” they are looking for.
While the shooter may well be an anti-Obama sociopath, conservatives online noted that it is worth keeping in mind that in 2009 during the debate over Obamacare, a Democrat in Denver “took a hammer to the picture windows displaying posters touting President Barack Obama and his health care reform efforts” to gin up sympathy for Obama and Obamacare.
In 2009, the Denver Post reported:
One of two people suspected of shattering 11 windows Tuesday morning at the state Democratic Party headquarters has an arrest record and a history of helping a Democratic political candidate, public records show.
Police said that about 2:20 a.m., 24-year-old Maurice Schwenkler, now in custody, and an at-large accomplice took a hammer to the picture windows displaying posters touting President Barack Obama and his health care reform efforts.
Early Tuesday, Democratic Party chairwoman Pat Waak said the damage to her building in Denver’s art district was a consequence of “an effort on the other side to stir up hate.” She tempered her statement after Schwenkler’s political history was revealed.
