From the NY Observer:
Hiram Monserrate's office was burglarized [Thursday] night in what the Queens Democratic City Councilman is suggesting was a "politically motivated" crime.
Monserrate Condemns 'Politically Motivated' Burglary
Hiram issued the following statement:
"Like every office there are computers, printers, scanners and other equipment including a TV with DVD. However, the only equipment taken was a personal laptop. Also, what was taken was stationery. It is for this reason one begins to suspect the break–in was politically motivated.
We look forward to a political climate that addresses the issues and concerns of our constituents and does not involve dirty tricks."
