    If you somehow missed that elephant, maybe this story from 4 weeks ago will help you to see it:

    Oh well. It still doesn't diminish the possibility of it. And of course there's always this...

    Vandalism in the US has to become an political issue.
    Don't really have a clue who could have done this but really find it hard to believe it was an organized group.

    Most likely two or three teens bored one night. Vandalisms is usually low on the totem pole of priorities of police depts so doubt we will ever know.

    If I were in a tight race or a supporter, I know the first thing I'd do is vandalize my opponents shop. That will look great in the papers and is a sure bet to give us a bump.

    The question is why do people hope other people choke to death because they did not vote for someone they support? That is rude and counterproductive for someone to state that they hope fellow American people, some of them maybe even friends and family, to die horribly by choking to death because they did not support "the candidate that they support"?

    Sorry, but that does not sound like liberty or libertarian at all, that sounds like good old hatred for people's freedom to vote the way they want to.

    I do not dislike mr. Innis, but I hope mrs. Shae wins, there are far too few women in congress/politics and of course because she is a democrat.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    Sometimes people get the response that their posts deserve.

    No Democrat's office has ever been vandalized. Conservatives are saints.

    Honestly, vandalism is usually just vandalism. But why not try to make political hay? And even on the off chance this does turn out to be Dem operatives, I'm sure we'll hear how any instances of Rs vandalizing Ds are totally different.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    The very reason I don't think the GOP did it either, and I certainly don't think the FRC did it. They have no history of this type of thing, they are not violent, and it wouldn't make sense logistically either.

    That said, I agree with the posters who think it was teenagers. That would make sense, because this sort of act just smacks of teenage hooliganism.
