Drunken Pawlenty Worker At Iowa Family’s Door at 3AM

For some unexplained reason a drunken campaign worker for the Tim Pawlenty Presidential Exploratory Committee was found at a Polk County, Iowa Family’s back door at 3AM on Wednesday morning.

Ben Foster was arrested and ended up in the Polk County jail after the Steward family called police about a drunken intruder trying to get into their back door. Foster was charged with public intoxication and trespassing.

An Iowa consultant for the Pawlenty campaign confirms that Foster was an employee of the Tim Pawlenty Presidential Exploratory Committee.

The Pawlenty campaign issued the following statement:

“The Pawlenty for President Exploratory Committee today acknowledged that a 24-year-old employee, Ben Foster, was arrested on public intoxication and trespassing charges at approximately 3:30 a.m. by the Johnston (Iowa) Police Department.

“Foster issued the following statement: ‘Last night, I made a very serious mistake. I take full responsibility for my actions. I want to apologize to all affected by my poor judgment. I especially apologize to the people who were disturbed during the incident and the arresting officers. I give my word that it will never happen again.’

“Eric Woolson, speaking for the exploratory committee, said, “Governor Pawlenty is extremely disappointed in Ben’s actions and his behavior does not meet the standards he expects of his employees. Therefore, the committee is placing Ben on a two-week unpaid suspension and expects him to bear the legal consequences for his action.'”
