A 29-year-old staffer working for President Barack Obama's re-election died on Friday after collapsing at the Obama campaign headquarters in Chicago, campaign officials said. There was no immediate word on the cause of death. Alex Okrent had worked with the Obama team since 2004. The president, who was campaigning in Virginia ahead of the November 6 election, called Okrent's family to express his condolences and also spoke with other campaign staffers in a conference call.

Implications of this, I'm not so sure. But, it will be very interesting if this becomes Romney's first entry on the Presidential Deadpool. Surely we'll be spun through weeks and weeks of autopsy and related things, only to find the coroner dead later on.

At 29? Well, using Alex Jones logic, there is only one answer: This is OBVIOUS that Romney had him killed, to hamstring Obama's campaign. There is simply NO OTHER conclusion one can come to.

I think it's has more to do with pressure and over exertion on why this kid died. Nothing more, nothing less. The kid worked in a demanding field.

Romney killing Obama staff? Why would he kill his own staff?

Obama's just working them all to death, look there.

Look at it this way, he died in style. He'll literally never be forgotten and he didn't have to be a criminal or something. Everything has some upside, however small.

Who photoshopped obama's long form birth certificate!?!

Answer; Alex Okrent:?? Okrent who began working for Obama during his 2004 U.S. Senate bid in Illinois, was a member of the paid media department for the obama campaign and working on obama's re-election campaign!
Alex Okrent an Obama staffer died after mysterious collapsing at Obama's chicago headquarters!
Was this because of Joe Arpaio's forthcoming press conference this coming Tuesday? We may never know.

A couple of very interesting follow up articles on this very odd death of a 29 year old man. He died of what was stated to be a heart attack.

Did you know the autopsy was ruled as inconclusive?

Chicago Tribune News

His death was similar to Andrew Breitbart's.




There are odd parallels between the death of Andrew Breitbart and Obama staffer Alex Okrent. In both cases there were statements reported in the news almost immediately that they had died of heart attacks, even before autopsies were performed. In both cases they oddly collapsed then shortly thereafter died. In both cases their age did not portent a heart attack.





An extensive search of the Internet finds that there is literally nothing about him prior to July 13. This is odd given that the Obama campaign has stated he had been a staff member, a “communication employee,” for eight years. Eight years is a long time in politics. But aside from a single blog posting in February of 2008 where Okrent posts an Obama open letter to gays and lesbians regarding his stance on same-sex marriage, nothing shows him to be an Obama staff member or associated with the Obama campaign in any way. Equally odd is his Twitter timeline. Going back to 2009, of his hundreds of tweets, nothing makes mention of his being a staff member of the Obama campaign, including his bio. Granted, he tweets out support for Obama’s stance on gay marriage; several times tweets that his followers should donate to Obama’s campaign, but there is no “Working on Obama’s campaign xyz today” kind of tweets.




We could probably somehow explain this away, but the literal wiping away of any information on the Internet about Alex Okrent (including a deleted Facebook page) cannot be disregarded. For anyone who has Google’d their own name knows, someone who merely exists in the world is all over the Internet. Their connection to the high school they went to; college; volunteer groups; blogs; what is tweeted; boyfriends, girlfriends, friends, acquaintances, Facebook posts, etc.

There is more at the links. Odd to say the least.
