Election sabotage

The week's news at a glance.

Milwaukee

Five Democratic activists who worked for John Kerry’s presidential campaign in Milwaukee have been charged with slashing the tires of vans that Republicans had rented to drive voters to the polls on Election Day. One of the men, Sowande Omokunde, 25, is the son of Democratic Rep. Gwen Moore. A witness said the men left Democratic headquarters around 3 a.m. on Election Day, dressed in black “Mission: Impossible” gear. Minutes later, 25 vehicles outside President Bush’s local campaign office had been sabotaged. Rick Wiley of the state GOP said it was “unbelievable that people could stoop this low.” Democratic spokesman Seth Boffeli said, “This is not something we engage in, or encourage.”
