Dirty Tricks? Dem Operative Busted In Iowa

This is interesting. Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz Targeted for Identity Theft by Former Obama Staffer. Hmm. Here’s the story from the Des Moines Register. His bio seems to have vanished from his employer’s page though. But here it is via the Wayback Machine.

So is this an isolated incident or part of a broader dirty-tricks campaign? At the very least, it’s an indication that we should be suspicious of any out-of-character scandals involving Republicans where the evidence is largely electronic. Note that Link Strategies, where the arrested Zach Edwards worked until very recently, was founded by a former Tom Harkin operative.
