Former Obama staffer arrested for false ID scheme

January 24, 2012 No Comments

Zachary Edwards, a former Obama campaign staffer, who worked in Nevada and five other states as well, during the 2008 primary and general elections, has been arrested in a political identity theft scheme in Iowa. Police say Edwards “used, or tried to use, the identity of Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz in a scheme to falsely implicate Schultz in perceived unethical behavior in office.”

Washington Examiner columnist Mark Tapscott explains why this is a much bigger story than the media will let on:

You will recall that ACORN and other Democratic satellites organized a campaign a couple of years back to install their allies in Secretary of State offices in as many key states as possible. Such officials are responsible for enforcing – or not enforcing – state election laws.

Being a Republican, Schultz represented an obstacle to the plan. Could that be why Edwards sought to, according to the Des Moines Register, falsify Schultz identity in an effort to implicate him in a scandal that would result in his possible removal from office or defeat in the next election?
