Brendan Mullen is running against Jackie Walorski.  You may remember that Ms. Walorski, a Tea Party darling, was defeated by Democrat Joe Donnelly.  Joe is now running for the Senate, and Brendan has the pleasure of running against Jackie.

Now, I'm not suggesting that Jackie Walorski had anything to do with the 4 bombs detonated in Brendan Mullen's district.  However, there is a video showing that some of her followers are a tad unruly.

Here's the article about the bombs:

At TPM Feds Investigate Explosion In Indiana Candidate’s Mailbox

A small explosion of some kind occurred Monday afternoon in a mailbox outside the home of Indiana Democratic congressional candidate Brendan Mullen.

A law enforcement official told TPM on Tuesday that authorities are investigating a spate of incidents involving similar explosions. Four such explosions have occurred in and around Granger, Ind., where Mullen lives, in the last 24 hours, according to David Coulson, a spokesperson for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

We must remember that NO race is unimportant, especially to the rabid Tea Party and of course to the GOP.

In fact, Karl Rove is rallying to defeat Joe Donnelly with another Tea Party Candidate, Richard Mouordock.

Again, the ATF is investigating and we don't know who is responsible for the bombs.  The above are facts regarding the political race the victim, Brendan Mullen, is running in and who Brendan is running against.

What next?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
