It ain't the DNC headquarters, but... 

These scandals are looking more like Watergate every day. Historian Gerald Nicosia of Marin County, CA had his home broken into Thursday. The burglars left a camera and other expensive items untouched. What they took was three boxes of records the FBI kept on John Kerry from his antiwar protest days in the 70's. Yes, the FBI kept files on antiwar protesters back in the 70's (some things never change), and yes, they had a file on John Kerry. Nicosia had obtained the records through a Freedom of Information Act request, and was using them in his research.

MemoryBlog wonders how the burglars--whoever they were--found out about the files, and comes up with an interesting answer.
