The home of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in Louisville was found vandalized Saturday morning, according to WAVE 3 News.
Messages were spray painted along the front of his residence in Kentucky.
The graffiti makes reference to McConnell’s rejection of $2,000 COVID-19 relief checks, with a message on the front door reading “Where is my money.”
Republican Party of Kentucky spokesman Mike Lonergan released a statement condeming the vandalism of McConnell’s home.
“Vandalism is reprehensible and there’s no place in our politics for acts like this. Kentuckians deserve better and the Democrats should join us in condemning this act of vandalism,” the statement read.
Gov. Andy Beshear (D) also denounced the vandalism in a statement on Twitter.
The vandalism to @senatemajldr McConnell’s home is unacceptable. While the First Amendment protects our freedom of speech, vandalism is reprehensible and never acceptable for any reason. ^AB
