Seattle police are investigating a break-in at the state headquarters for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jay Inslee.Officials did not yet know if any sensitive materials were taken from the building, located at 901 Rainier Avenue South. Workers who arrived Tuesday around 5:30 a.m. found a broken window and open door. The facility apparently contained a number of laptop and other desktop computers. Police did not say they had any suspects yet.

The building also serves as the headquarters for Organizing For America, which was set up in 2009 by the Democratic National Committee after the election of Obama. It’s a “community organizing” type of group, with offices all over the country. OFA was recently in the news after James O’Keefe, the same man who brought down ACORN with an undercover video sting, captured the OFA regional field director in Houston assisting a voter in casting a ballot in Florida and Texas — a direct violation of several federal laws.
