I did some further digging on the broken window at the Democratic campaign office down on Calder Way last month. The sergeant assigned to the case says that they couldn't find the vehicle associated with the incident in any of the traffic-control cameras, and that the case has been closed for lack of evidence. They found a "BB" in the glass which probably represented the object which broke the window. When I noted that I've never seen an air rifle projectile break a window - they'll usually just leave a pinprick hole in the pane and a spall pattern opposite the hit - he said that they thought perhaps it was a slingshot. If anybody knows a white male in the area with an old white Ford Tempo or Tempo-like sedan, let the police know, OK?
