Musgrave Gets Appropriate Campaign Contribution

I know this is very sophomoric, but somehow it strikes me as higihly appropriate.

Republican U.S. Rep. Marilyn Musgrave’s re-election campaign was already heated, and it just got smelly as well: Her staff accused a Democratic activist Thursday of leaving an envelope full of dog feces at Musgrave’s Greeley office.

Musgrave spokesman Shaun Kenney said someone stuffed the envelope through the mail slot in the door on May 31 and then sped away in a car. Kenney said most of the preprinted return address was blacked out, but staffers used the nine-digit ZIP code to trace it to Kathleen Ensz, a Weld County Democratic volunteer.

I guess they didn’t have time to do it right: put it in a brown back, set it on fire, ring the doorbell and run away….

(If you don’t know the backstory on this, Musgrave is the sponsor of the Federal Marriage Amendment.)


  1. Heh…I’m from Musgrave’s state (not her district, thank goodness – that’s a different whinge for another day) and when I saw that this morning, I laughed myself sick. Definitely the right gift for the right person!

  2. The FBI should run DNA tests on the dog poop. How much ya wanna bet that it came from Musgrave’s own dog? She’s got to be sleeping with Karl Rove, because they both use the same MO for everything.

  3. Y’all do realize I live out here in Colorado with these koots? I expect Musgrave to act afool with her shhhhugery self, but our own folk? Well…

  4. Sounds like that democratic activist was set up. Who would leave dog poo in their own pre-printed return address envelope (barely blacked out or not)? No one is that stupid.

    I am in complete favor of poo in Musgrave’s box but I wonder how it really got there.
