Now He Knows What It Feels Like When the Republicans Are In Charge: RNC Delegate Duped, Doped, Robbed and Shamed

September 16th, 2008 by Jeff Simmermon

This kind of beautiful karmic hammer only swings every so often:

He met her in the bar of the swank hotel and invited her to his room. Once there, the woman fixed the drinks and told him to get undressed.

And that, the delegate to the Republican National Convention told police, was the last thing he remembered.

When he awoke, the woman was gone, as was more than $120,000 in money, jewelry and other belongings.

In a statement released today, Gabriel Nathan Schwartz, 29, of Denver, put the figure at much less.

“It’s embarrassing to admit that I was a target of a crime. I was drugged and had about $50,000 of personal items stolen, not the inflated number that the media is reporting from an inaccurate police report,” he said.

“As a single man, I was flattered by the attention of a beautiful woman who introduced herself to me. I used poor judgment.”

Contacted by the Denver Post Monday, Schwartz declined to speak on the record. In the statement released today, Schwartz said he would decline further interview requests.

The haul included a $30,000 watch, a $20,000 ring, a necklace valued at $5,000, earrings priced at $4,000 and a Prada belt valued at $1,000, police said.

Schwartz is a single attorney and a fixture in Colorado Republican politics.

Something tells me that he’s going to stay a single attorney for a good long while — here he is on camera at the RNC:

I’d love to hear that anywhere between $50 – $120, 000 in cash had been donated anonymously to the Obama campaign office in the Twin Cities by a single, beautiful woman.
