Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s house in Louisville, KY, was vandalized late last night after he blocked $2,000 stimulus checks that would have greatly helped many Americans.
The home was hit with spray paint in several spots as seen in the video below. The vandal, or vandals, painted messages like “where’s my money” and some other sayings.
McConnell issued a statement in defense of the First Amendment, but 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” per a report on Courier Journal.
According to Louisville Metro Police Department spokesman Dwight Mitchell, the incident occurred about 5 a.m. Saturday, with “minor damage of graffiti on a window and door.” The department has no suspects, and its Fifth Division is investigating.
It is unclear if McConnell was home while the vandalism was happening.
Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s house was also vandalized recently. Her garage was spray painted and they left fake blood and a pig head on her driveway.
