Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s Louisville home was vandalized early Saturday morning.
“Where’s my money,” “F**k Mitch,” and other phrases were spray painted on his home.
“I’ve spent my career fighting for the First Amendment and defending peaceful protest,” said McConnell in a statement. “I appreciate every Kentuckian who has engaged in the democratic process whether they agree with me or not.”
“This is different,” continued McConnell. “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.”
According to the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Dwight Mitchell, the vandalism occurred around 5 a.m. Saturday, with what the police call “minor damage of graffiti on a window and door.” The department is currently investigating but has zero suspects.
Democrat Governor Andy Beshar condemned the vandalism in a Tweet, calling the vandalism “unacceptable.”
“The vandalism to @senatemajldr McConnell’s home is unacceptable, said Beshear. ”While the First Amendment protects our freedom of speech, vandalism is reprehensible and never acceptable for any reason.”
McConnell is not the only politician to have their home vandalized recently. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had her home vandalized Friday morning.
