Pawlenty’s Drunk Campaign Staffer Arrested for Trespassing in Iowa

Posted on | April 6, 2011 | 5 Comments

Ben Foster, 24, was arrested after he tried to break into a house in Ankeny, Iowa, at 3 a.m. A staffer for the Tim Pawlenty presidential exploratory campaign, Foster was evidently so drunk he mistook the house in Ankeny for the place he was staying — 10 miles away in Johnston, Iowa. Both towns are suburbs of Des Moines.

After barfing in a family’s yard and badly frightening their teenage daughter with his early-morning intrusion, Foster has apologized and will be suspended for two weeks from the Pawlenty campaign.

So I’m just going to take this opportunity for a brief message:

Because His Campaign Staff Won’t Barf in Your Yard
