You just can’t make this stuff up: Teen Finds Campaign Worker At Back Door At 3AM.

Tim Pawlenty’s exploratory presidential campaign released this 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.’

One can only imagine what might have happened if this had happened to Sarah Palin’s exploratory campaign. It would be front-paged on every new media site in the political industry.
