Isn't THIS Just What You'd Expect!

Dem Senator's Sons Vandalize Memorial For Iraq War Casualties

Boise, Idaho -- Police arrested 24-year old Michael Burkett of Boise early Sunday morning after officers with Capitol Mall Security reported spotting him vandalizing two flag poles on the grounds of the Idaho Statehouse.

The flags are memorials to soldiers who lost their lives in the war on terror.
"It's certainly upsetting, not just to officers but for any citizen of this county who knows somebody who lost their lives in Iraq or Afghanistan," Lt. Ron Winegar said of the ongoing investigation.


Burkett was charged with resisting arrest and Malicious Injury to Property. He and his 22-year-old brother, Tom Burkett, also charged with the vandalism, are the sons of state Sen. Michael Burkett (D) of Idaho's 19th district.

Perhaps you didn't read about what happened to Bill Nelson's son on election night? It was just as bad--if not worse.
