Clinton hostage taker inspired by her ads?

Who says political ads don’t spur people to action? Leeland Eisenberg, the guy accused of taking hostages at Hillary Clinton’s New Hampshire office on Friday, reportedly was moved to action by her ad campaign—specifically, by a spot (shown above) in which a man speaks about how the senator helped him get insurance to pay for a bone-marrow transplant for his son. Eisenberg, who may have his own insurance problems, reportedly mentioned the ad when he arrived at the campaign office with highway flares strapped to himself. Things should get interesting when Hillary’s opponents figure out how to turn this to their advantage. “Hillary Clinton says she’s against people strapping flares to themselves and making demands, but her record says otherwise.”
