Pawlenty Staffer Arrested in Iowa

This is not going to look good on campaign signs: A staffer for Tim Pawlenty’s political action committee was arrested in Iowa for public intoxication and trespassing early Wednesday morning. Police said Ben Foster, 24, banged on a stranger’s door and tried to enter what he thought was the house where he was staying at 3:30 in the morning. Chloe Steward, 15, said she went to investigate why the family dog was barking so late and noticed Foster’s “arm on the back door, trying to get in … and then my dad opened his safe and got his gun out and just stayed inside.” Foster apologized for his actions in a statement and said he mistook the Steward house for the one he is staying—located some 10 miles away.
