CARNAHAN ADMITS STAFFER WAS BEHIND OFFICE FIREBOMBING!
The suspect who firebombed Rep. Russ Carnahan’s office last week was reportedly a disgruntled progressive activist employed by the democrat. An unnamed source familiar with the case released the information. Suspect Chris Powers reportedly was upset because he did not get paid so he firebombed the Carnahan finance offices at 2 in the morning.
What a complete shock.
Dem operative and firebomber Chris Powers is the sweaty one pictured here on right during a rally for nationalized health care. Powers
is was a paid canvasser for Russ Carnahan.
The RFT reported:
Congressman Russ Carnahan held a press conference confirming that the person St. Louis police arrested and released for last week’s firebombing of his campaign headquarters did in fact work for his re-election campaign.
Carnahan did not say the man’s name but did confirm that the name Chris Powers made public this morning on a right-wing blog
was accurate. According to Carnahan, the suspect volunteered for his campaign in July and was hired this month as a political canvasser — a job he kept for five days before being let go for “failing to do his job.”
This afternoon Daily RFT left a message with a Chris Powers listed in the St. Louis phone book but has heard no response.
