    SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry's campaign picked
    up $900,000 at a California fundraiser, but lost a laptop computer
    containing sensitive campaign information.
    Campaign spokesman Chris Lehane said the laptop was stolen from his
    car while he was eating lunch. Lehane said a waiter told him he saw a
    middle-aged man pull up next to Lehane's car, smash a window, snatch
    the computer and speed off.
    "The information in the computer far exceeded the value of the
    computer," Lehane said.
    He filed a police report, and a witness wrote down the license plate
    of the suspect's vehicle, but police determined the plate had been
    stolen. Lehane said he didn't believe the computer heist was anything
    more than a routine street theft.
