Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell’s (R-K.Y) home in the Highlands section of Louisville, Kentucky was vandalized overnight. The vandalism occurred one day after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-C.A) home in San Fransisco was vandalized with fake pigs blood and graffiti as well.
The messages spray painted were in reference to the $2000 stimulus check increase that was blocked by McConnell.
The messages were written on the front of the home in red and white spray paint. The rest of Mr. McConnell’s home appeared not to have been touched.
According to police, the person responsible has not been identified as of now. Mr. McConnell spoke on the vandalism stating that vandalism has “no place in our society.”
“I’ve spent my career fighting for the First Amendment and defending peaceful protest. I appreciate every Kentuckian who has engaged in the democratic process whether they agree with me or not,” Senator McConnell said. “This is different. Vandalism and the politics of fear have no place in our society. My wife and I have never been intimidated by this toxic playbook. We just hope our neighbors in Louisville aren’t too inconvenienced by this radical tantrum.”
