The transgender anarchist charged with smashing windows at the Colorado Democratic Party headquarters last summer has entered a guilty plea, the Denver Post reports
Maurice Joseph Schwenkler, who goes by Ariel Attack, will receive a year of probation and must pay $5,000 in restitution for the 11 windows Schwenkler and an unnamed accomplice smashed with hammers on August 25.
As we mentioned in our earlier coverage
, Colorado Democrats initially called Schwenkler's attack the natural consequence of a rising tide of hateful right-wing rhetoric. Schwenkler's association with anarchists and the gay, lesbian and transgender protest group Denver Bash Back -- as well as previous work for a Democratic candidate -- belied that assumption.
