TWO FIGURES RUN TOWARD DEMOCRATIC PARTY HQ PASSAGE
Video camera from a business across the street from Alaskans for Don Young’s campaign headquarters shows the possible perpetrators ran toward offices of the Alaska Democratic Party and Al Gross for Senate campaign headquarters.
The video shows that at 3:42 am on Monday, the time of the break-in, two figures dash from the Don Young headquarters, and sneak along buildings until reaching the Democratic Party’s headquarters, where they two disappear into a passageway between the ADP offices and the temporary offices of Democratic candidate Al Gross.
There’s no reason to believe that the break in is anything of the magnitude of the Watergate scandal of the 1972 Nixon campaign.
That scandal became public after June 17, 1972, when several burglars were arrested in the office of the Democratic National Committee, which was inside the Watergate complex of buildings in Washington, D.C. The burglary was stopped by security guards at 2:30 am. The prowlers were connected to President Richard Nixon’s reelection campaign while stealing documents and setting wiretaps inside the Democratic Headquarters.
This time, the burglary took place at the darkest hour in Alaska: On Monday, July 20, the darkest hour in Anchorage was between 2:45 am and 3:45 am.
