On Sunday, Leeland Eisenberg, the man who took hostages six years ago in one of Hillary Clinton’s campaign offices, escaped from a halfway house in Manchester, New Hampshire. Authorities say Eisenberg is not considered armed or dangerous (though he does have a history of mental illness, substance abuse, and parole violations, as well as two rape convictions, so that assessment sounds generous). When Eisenberg fled authorities in 2010 he was found in his house, so that’s probably a good place to start looking.
