The Courier-Journal reports this morning that the campaign office of U.S. Representative John Yarmuth, Democrat representing Kentucky’s 3rd District (which includes most of Louisville), was broken into Tuesday night:
A computer server was among several items missing from the campaign headquarters of U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth, D-3rd District, after an overnight break-in, a spokesman said.
Also missing are a jump drive, wireless computer network cards, office supplies and food items, according to campaign spokesman Christopher Hartman, who said a door to the office at 900 E. Market St. was found open yesterday morning.
“We started noticing things progressively and we may notice more,” he said of the missing items.
Hartman said the server was worth up to $2,000 and the other items were worth more than $100.
“There were many valuable things out in the open that weren’t touched,” Hartman said.
Yarmuth is defending his congressional seat against former U.S. Rep. Anne Northup, whom he defeated two years ago.
Hartman says what makes the burglary more unusual is that some pens and packets of sugar are also missing.
There’s no indication whatsoever at the moment whether G. Gordon Liddy or any other Republican “plumbers” were involved.
