Democrat operative burned down AZ Democrat headquarters
Under the cover of early morning darkness last Friday July 24, a ravaging fire broke out at Arizona Democrat party headquarters. Classified as arson by Phoenix police, it was responsible for destroying party records, furnishings and historic political memorabilia.
The timing, in advance of the Primary Election, appeared Watergately suspicious. Who would be moved to create such havoc at this particular time?
When an arrest was made with the aid of surveillance video, the culprit turned out to be Matthew Egler, a disgruntled elected Democrat Precinct Committeeman and State Committeeman, self identified as President/Chairmen Valley Leadership Council.
Egler had previously worked at the party headquarters, which likely accounts for the placement of the report. The Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating Arizona Republic newspaper chose to place the follow-up naming Matthew Egler on Page 3 of the inside Valley & State section.
If the perpetrator had been a Republican — playing into the newspaper’s hoped for narrative — it would have merited a Page One, bold headlined report. When the arsonist is a 29-year-old Democrat activist, who still lives with his parents and posts bizarre online rantings, the focus is…not to focus.
The police do a superb job. The barely surviving local newspaper excels at agenda-driven obfuscation.
