What a choice. Grampa Boswell sleeping through another 2 years or "poor judgement" Zaun tying up police resources when he gets "emotional". Just dandy.

Wow,a single man having a hard time with a girlfriend in 2001. Not hardly a scandal! It is amazing what the media will do to try and hurt a candidate they dont back. What a joke.

The good old Des Moines Register and the Democratic party digging up 9 year old dirt because their YES MAN Boswell is so far behind in the campaign will not do a thing to increase Boswell's chances of keeping his seat come November. VOTE Boswell OUT!!!!!

A single man who happened to be a mayor. If he couldn't use good judgement when he was mayor then what would lead his constituents to expect more from him now as a congressman?

the story is a literal "he said/she said"

there may or may not be anything to it

many normal people have experienced a person they're dating take an inexplicable 'about face', although usually, it doesnt involve the police

but i could see how it could - there's a lot of nutty people out there

This does not change my support for Zaun. If this is the best that Boswell can come up with to smear Zaun, Boswell is in seriuos trouble.

Boswell has had his chance and he screwed up big time. Thank you, WHO for informing us, but my support of Zaun remains.

Des Moines Register on-line report has more information that lads me to believe it is not just he said/she said. Check out their web site.
Is it material after 9 years? I am more interested in why a police report was not filed at the time.

More like single woman having a hard time with a goofy ex-boyfriend back in 2001, or am I mistaken about who was on the business end of the police report.

I agree that digging up 9 year garbage is not right. However, someone who harasses any person has some serious issues within themselves.

Yeah, this is why I no longer get the Des Moines Register. And now channel 13 playing along with them? May be time to change my homepage again.

I'm getting a little tired of hearing the media blamed for simply doing their job. You'll note that the same story, nearly word for word, was run by KCCI as well. Hmmm...maybe if all the media is against Zaun, perhaps there's something to it?! Personally, I'd prefer a candidate that can control his emotions to the point the police do not have to be called in.

Since he is a public figure then it is understandable a police report would show up. The weight/value of this information, from one incident nine years ago is minimal. If this is all they can dig up..........

This isn't the only issue with Zaun. He doesn't like to pay his bills either. Look it up on the court records. This is his "morales" he wants to take to Washington. HYPOCRITE

Alex, You can bet the Democratic county attorney Sarcone would sure have heck charged Zaun if there was the least amount of creditability to the report. But there were no charges filed just a warning by WDM police to stay away. Seems as he did as instructed....
