New Hampshire Democratic campaign headquarters burgled

News & Politics
CNN:
Burglars have broken into Democratic Party headquarters.
No, you're not having a flashback to 1972 and the infamous event that ultimately led to the greatest scandal in U.S. political history and the downfall of Richard Nixon's presidency.
Instead of Washington's Watergate complex, this burglary took place at the New Hampshire Democratic Party's headquarters over the weekend. Neither police nor party officials will comment on what was stolen and whether the break-in was politically motivated.
Office workers reported the break-in to police on Monday. Concord Police Sgt. Mike McGuire said some items were taken, but he declined to be more specific. The assessment was the same from Kathy Sullivan, the chairwoman of the state Democratic Party.
"Some things were taken, but I don't really want to get into that right now," Sullivan said on Tuesday.
There was no indication that any personal financial information was taken, said party spokeswoman Kathleen Strand.
"We want to assure our donors that their personal financial information, as far as we can tell, has been protected, and we hope to find out who did this soon," she said.
On the night of June 17, 1972, in the midst of Nixon's re-election campaign, five men were arrested during a break-in at Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate building. In all, 25 people eventually went to jail for their roles in the break-in or the White House's attempt to cover it up.
I can see people getting excited about this only to have it turn out that it was a couple of crackheads or whatever who broke in to steal the fax machine. Nevertheless, it's a story worth noting.
