I always wonder if people in Iowa get tired of their unique role in national politics:
Ankeny police charged a staffer for Republican Tim Pawlenty’s political action committee with public intoxication and trespassing early this morning after he banged on a stranger’s door and tried to enter what he thought was his home, records show.
Ankeny Police Lt. Ed Hamilton said Stacy and Kevin Steward, of 1805 S. W. 38th St. in Ankeny, called 911 to report that a drunken man was trying to enter their home. Police found an intoxicated Foster in the yard and asked him what he was looking for, Hamilton said. He said he was trying to go to the home of his friend, state Rep. Erik Helland, R-Johnston, where he’s been staying.
The Steward family told KCCI-TV that Foster vomited in their backyard and scared their 15-year-old daughter, who went to investigate why the family dog was barking at 3 a.m. and found Foster trying to get in the back door.
“His arm was in my back door, trying to get in, and I screamed and I went upstairs to my parents’ room and I continued screaming,” Chloe Steward told the television station. “And then my dad opened his safe and got his gun out, and just stayed inside.”
Best of all, this seems to be his full name:
Ben Limbaugh Foster
