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.

Russ forgot to mention that this radical staffer also also has a history of harassing tea party patriots.

    I thought “failing to do his job” was a prerequisite for Democrat Socialist Workers’ Party personnel. What gives?

    This is no shock, especially when the “suspect” was released. Had it been who they hoped it was, that person would have been on a one way trip to Gitmo.

    so it’s seems im having trouble posting a comment over at RFT.. lol, oh well to that clown making a political statement = insane but fire bombing a political figure = sane BRILLIANT

  • down with dems

    But will charges be pressed? Haven’t heard a thing about that. Keep on this story… see if Russ lets him off.

  • charlie

    Why are Republicans even paying attention to this story? I don’t see what the controversy is and why conservatives are wetting their pants over this.

  • SM-Illinois

    How’s that for transparency & honesty!!! After he got cornered, exposed and outed….by jove the loser slimeball weasel finally coughed up! (No insult to weasels intended!)

  • sliderblaze

    Charlie… you must not have been paying attention. Tea party (conservatives) have been pegged as violent and when a violent act happens, they are suspect number one and time after time it turns out it’s leftists that are the violent ones… it fits the bigger narrative that dems and the media have been hatching and failing at EPICALLY i might add. If it was an isolated event, nobody cares, but it’s not, it’s cumulative.

    Charlie. Did you see the SWEATY LIBTARD?
    Dripping in sweat. Psychotics often use drugs that disable their ability to sweat.
    Chris Powers must have stopped taking the meds. It’s classic Charlie, but don’t worry, Chris Powers will get excellent health care in the “JOINT”.

    Paging Russ: pay the people who work for you.Moreover,how many reports did you recieve from the field about Mr. Powers behavior and how it reflects your judgement?
    Charlie close your eyes ,and pretend this was any Republican running for office and this story was posted, what would be the narative the next day by our vaunted “fourth estate?”

  • donh

    If somebody sweats profusely and likes to play with fire, are they not a soul headed for the underworld ? A perfect member of Obama’s minions.
