Man Arrested In Attack At Iowa Congressman’s Farm

LEON, Iowa (AP) — Police in Iowa have arrested one man and are seeking another suspected of being involved in a weekend home invasion at U.S. Rep. Leonard Boswell’s farm outside Lamoni.

The Iowa Department of Public Safety announced Tuesday that authorities had arrested 19-year-old Cody John Rollins of Lamoni. They are looking for a second suspect, 20-year-old David Palmer Dewberry of Fremont, Neb.

Boswell’s office has said a man with a gun entered the congressman’s house Saturday night and attacked his daughter. Boswell tried to fight the man off, and as they scuffled, his 22-year-old grandson got a shotgun. When Boswell’s grandson pointed the gun at the intruder, the man ran off.

No one was seriously injured.

      If the clown had his way only the crooks would have firearms. He is part of the obamao and hilary clan, I don’t want to for get boxer or good old diane either. They are all a bunch of jerks.

      • King

        You are brain washed, kid.

      • @schneider

        You’re the least intelligent person ever, if I asked my 7 year old to type what you just did he would do 5times better, Its shameful if you graduated high school.

    Since the guy is a liberal polititition I think this is all a publicity stunt. Actually I think he was drunk and fell down the stairs.
    If of course if there is any truth to this issue why didn’t he just call 911 like he wants everyone else to do rather than own firearms of any kind.
    I live within the area of this worthless clown. When we were getting flooded out here in Iowa he was in Florida flying over his home down there to make sure flood waters weren’t an issue there. He cared less for the people of Iowa getting flooded out.
    So take my word for it this last thing to come up with the guy is is nothing more than a political ploy. Here he is getting free nationwide publicity over one of his drunken mishaps. I feel sorry for the 19 year old the county is railroading for this clown. The high sheriff of this county have had his own past drug issues.

      Have you no sense of shame?

      Thomas Schneider, that’s quite a crazy rant you posted there.

      “I feel sorry for the 19 year old.” A 19-year-old who broke into an elderly man’s home and assaulted his daughter with a firearm.

      Wow. Stay classy, Thomas. People like you are the best advertisement Democrats could hope for.

    • @tom

      Do you see the irony in your story, if he opposes owning firearms and thisis a publicity stunt then why would he say his armed grandson scared them off, you’re contradicting yourself to the 10th degree, shame on your parents for conceiving you T. Schneider.

    • King

      A drunk like your Bush ?

  • Jim



    Another liberal hard at work.

    • Jim

      DFL, do you post the same asinine comment under every story? Good use of your time? LOL
