Rep. C.W. Bill Young says he's been burglarized, stalked by "Occupiers;" Police disagree
U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young has been re-elected to Congress repeatedly since 1970. He's running this year for his 22nd term. But this campaign, he says, has been different. This year, he says, has been rougher than ever before.
"My home's been broken into twice," Young said in the first in a series of three interviews with the Times over the past two weeks. "And my wife and I have been stalked in Washington and here in Florida. Who's behind it? I don't know."
But the 81-year-old congressman has his suspicions. He's not looking at his Democratic Party opponent, Jessica Ehrlich. Instead, in two of the three interviews, he named both the Occupy Wall Street movement and the Florida Consumer Action Network as his suspects, explaining: "The Occupiers are after me."
However, Indian Shores police say they haven't seen signs of any break-ins at Young's condominium this year.
