Senator Mitch McConnell’s Kentucky home was vandalized with graffiti just days after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s residence suffered a similar fate, WDRB-TV first reported.
Days after the Senate Majority Leader blocked calls for $2,000 stimulus checks, his Kentucky residence, including the front door and a window, was spray-painted.
“WERES MY MONEY,” the door graffiti read, whereas “Mitch kills the poor” was sprayed over the window. On the nearby wall, the vandals also wrote: “F*** MITCH.”
According to DailyMail.com, a spokesperson confirmed that the incident took place on Saturday morning at around 5 am.
As of this writing, no suspects have been identified or arrested.
The incident follows shortly after New Year’s Day when Nancy Pelosi’s home was vandalized with graffiti and a pig’s head.
In a viral photo shared on Twitter by filmmaker Maggie VandenBerghe, a pig’s head surrounded by a pool of red paint is seen resting on the pathway outside the garage of the House Speaker’s $5 million property in San Francisco.
The disturbing scene was accompanied by the following message: “$2k [crossed out] – Cancel Rent! – We want everything!”
At both sides of the garage door, the vandals also sprayed the ‘circle-A’ – a common anarchist symbol.
“City called to clean up at 3 am & police attempting to stop photos of scene. Media silent,” VandenBerghe wrote in her tweet.
As TMZ confirmed, the San Francisco Police Department responded to reports of vandalism and arrived at the House Speaker’s home early in the morning of New Year’s Day.
As of this writing, it is unclear whether any suspects linked to the vandalism have already been identified or arrested.
The acts of vandalism come as Pelosi has been calling for $600 stimulus checks to be raised to $2,000 – the amount that was also suggested by President Trump.
The efforts to get more money into Americans’ pockets via stimulus checks have so far been blocked by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who insisted that the Senate will not be “bullied” into approving the proposed amount.
“The Democrats and Republicans in the House have passed that legislation. Who is holding up that distribution to the American people? Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans,” Pelosi lashed out at the Republican on Wednesday.
“In blocking it, they are in denial of the hardship the American people are experiencing now, health wise, financially, and every way.”
