Nancy Pelosi's SF House vandalized with a severed pigs head in her driveway
Vandals spray-painted “$2K,” “Cancel rent!” and “We want everything" on Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s garage door and left a severed pig's head on the sidewalk outside her home in San Francisco, the SF Chropenicle reports.
Why it matters:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's Louisville home was also defaced and with vandals spraying on the front door “WERES MY MONEY,” and “MITCH KILLS THE POOR” scribbled in white spray-paint over a window. These actions appear to be in response to Congresses's failed attempt to pass a standalone Covid-19 relief bill that would have increased the amount of money being sent to individuals from $600 to $2,000.
Celebrity news site TMZ was the first to report the act of vandalism.
KGO-TV reported that security cameras circle the home in the posh Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco.
The Chronicle reported that SFPD arrived at the scene at 2 a.m. No one has taken responsibility for the vandalism, and black garbage bags now cover the graffiti.
What they're saying:
Senator Mitch McConnell wrote in a statement to Axios: “I’ve spent my career fighting for the First Amendment and defending peaceful protest,”
McConnell also said, “I appreciate every Kentuckian who has engaged in the democratic process whether they agree with me or not. This is different. Vandalism and the politics of fear have no place in our society.”
“We just hope our neighbors in Louisville aren’t too inconvenienced by this radical tantrum.”
Speaker Pelosi has not yet responded for comment.
