Seattle Times Reports Rock Thrown Through Cincinnati Congressman's 30th-Floor Window

"Is this the man you saw throwing the rock, Congressman?"
Health care reform rage! It's all the, uh, rage these days. Death threats by phone call; nooses via fax machine; bricks through windows. It seems like the most fashionable thing you can do in the wake of ObamaCare's passage is to wish ass cancer upon a Congressman. But are all reports of health care hysteria true? Probably not.

On Wednesday, The Seattle Times published a big news service round-up of all the threats directed at lawmakers nationwide. This included Steve Driehaus, an anti-abortion Ohio Democrat in heavily Catholic Cincinnati who got a rock through his office window after voting "yea":

Protesters have been demonstrating at Driehaus' Ohio home, said Tim Mulvey, a spokesman for the anti-abortion Democrat who joined Stupak in voting for the health bill. A rock was thrown through the window of Driehaus' Cincinnati office Sunday, and a death threat was phoned in to his Washington office a day later, Mulvey said.
The only problem? As NewsBusters points out, Driehaus' Cincinatti office is on the 30th floor of downtown's Carew Tower. Meaning the report is either bogus, or insurance reform opponents have deadly powerful, and accurate, throwing arms.
