The home of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was vandalized overnight, according to the Louisville Courier Journal.
McConnell’s front door and bricks were spray painted with the question “Where is my money?” and other expletives. On the window adjacent to the front porch, graffiti is seen which says: ‘MITCH KILLS THE POOR.’
The Louisville Metro Police say the incident happened at around 5:00am on Saturday. No suspects have been identified so far.
In a statement on Saturday McConnell said: “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.”
“This is different,” he continued. “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.”
This comes after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s home was vandalized early on New Year’s Day with graffiti, red paint and a severed pig’s head.
McConnell blocked the House-passed bill to raise payments from $600 to $2,000 on three separate days this week and blasted the proposal on Friday as “socialism for rich people.”
On Wednesday he said “the Senate is not going to be bullied into rushing out more borrowed money into the hands of Democrats’ rich friends who don’t need the help.”
