Pawlenty Exploratory Committee Consultant Arrested for Doing a Little Too Much Exploring

Some of these exploratory committee guys really take their jobs seriously:

ANKENY, Iowa — A 15-year-old girl found a campaign worker from Alabama banging on her Ankeny family’s back door early Wednesday morning.

Chloe Steward told KCCI she heard her dog barking around 3 a.m. and went to investigate. She said she found a man trying to get into the back door.

“His arm was in my back door, trying to get in and I screamed and went upstairs to my parents room and I continued screaming,” said Chloe Steward.

The family then called police.

Police said Benjamin Foster was arrested and charged with public intoxication and trespassing. He was taken to the Polk County Jail.

Iowa political strategist Eric Woolson is a consultant for the Pawlenty Exploratory Committee. He confirmed to KCCI that Foster is employed by the Pawlenty Exploratory Committee. He declined comment at this time on the incident.

Hillary had the “3 a.m. phone call” campaign commercial, but I doubt Pawlenty will produce a “3 a.m. drunk guy trying to get in the back door” ad.

All the commotion nearly woke up an Alvin Greene for President exploratory committee worker named Alvin Greene who was sleeping in the family’s garage.
