Rep. Scott's Office Vandalized with Four-Foot Swastika

At a contentious town hall meeting last week, Rep. David Scott (D-GA) shot back at the protesters who were disrupting his event by accusing them of “hijack[ing]” the gathering. Now, Scott’s district office in Smyrna, GA, has been vandalized with a four-foot swastika painted onto his door. Fox News reported that Capitol Hill police will likely be launching an investigation immediately. Watch it:


Just yesterday, Glenn Beck went off on a rant against Scott on his Fox News show:

BECK: Congressman, how many Americans…have called and called and called, only to be treated like swine?

You know what? I’m not sure, Congressman, if you are aware that not everybody has access to a brand new Gulfstream G550. I mean, it might be tough for the average Joe, who makes $129,000 less than you do to swing by the office for a meeting in Washington, D.C. We hope you understand and accept our offer instead to use a common alternative to private jets that are so much better for the environment called the telephone.

America, you call your congressman. You call just — the congressman that represents you. You call your senator right now. Is that — there is the House switchboard right there.
