Laptop thief, are you to blame for Vermont’s health care problems?

Sen. Ed Flanagan’s laptop has been reported stolen, according to Montpelier Police.

The Chittenden County senator reported to police that his Dell laptop was stolen from the Capitol Plaza Hotel, where he stays during the legislative session. The computer, which is usually locked up by hotel staff when Flanagan leaves town, apparently went missing two weeks ago.

He told police that the computer was several years old and pegged its value at about $600.

No word on the contents of the computer, but we can speculate that it contains enlightening notes from the Senate Health and Welfare Committee, which Flanagan co-chairs.
