Talk about Déjà vu! Burglars broke into the N.H. Democratic Headquarters. Many times, the like minded antics of the Bush administration has been compared to that of the uber-secret one of Nixon. The comparison of the war in Vietnam and the one in Iraq has been made many times. I wonder what would Nixon think about this if he were around today. A President that actually makes Tricky Dick look like a boy scout. With all the likeness that the two have in common, there was one thing missing, until now. There have been many data thefts in the last six years, but this one is directly related to the Democratic Party.
This time, it was not Watergate, but the New Hampshire Democratic Party’s headquarters. While they don’t want to be specific as to what may have been taken, they do admit to some things being missing. While it is not yet know if it was politically motivated, the burglary does bring back memories of an administration very much like the present one, that was hell bent on secrecy and far reaching powers.
Burglars have broken into Democratic Party headquarters.
No, you’re not having a flashback to 1972 and the infamous event that ultimately led to the greatest scandal in U.S. political history and the downfall of Richard Nixon’s presidency.
Instead of Washington’s Watergate complex, this burglary took place at the New Hampshire Democratic Party’s headquarters over the weekend. Neither police nor party officials will comment on what was stolen and whether the break-in was politically motivated.
Office workers reported the break-in to police on Monday. Concord Police Sgt. Mike McGuire said some items were taken, but he declined to be more specific. The assessment was the same from Kathy Sullivan, the chairwoman of the state Democratic Party.
“Some things were taken, but I don’t really want to get into that right now,” Sullivan said on Tuesday.
