The home of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in Louisville was destroyed overnight. According to reports, the graffiti suggested a possible political motivation.
McConnell’s home in the Kentucky Highlands was discovered Saturday morning and had angry messages including “Where’s my money?”, “Mitch kills the poor” and explosives. The graffiti was seen in photos posted online.
In a statement on Saturday morning, McConnell condemned the act and reiterated his support for the rights of the First Amendment.
“I have spent my career fighting for the First Amendment and defending peaceful protest,” the statement said. “I appreciate every Kentuckian who has participated in the democratic process, whether they agree with me or not.”
“It’s different,” he continued. “Vandalism and fear politics 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 bothered by this radical tantrum.”
LINDSEY GRAHAM BACKS TRUMPING OVER MCCONNELL TO $ 2,000 IN CONTROLS
The news appears to hint at McConnell’s refusal to vote on over $ 2,000 of stimulus checks after the House passed a measure earlier this week.
The Kentucky Republican Party moved quickly to back McConnell and condemn the actions. She said: “Vandalism is reprehensible and there is no place in our politics for such acts.”
“Kentuckians deserve better and the Democrats should join us in condemning this act of vandalism.”
The Senate adjourned Friday with no motion on the bill, which means the next Congress must consider the possibility of further aid related to the pandemic.
