Office of Eric Cantor's Democratic Opponent Vandalized With "Baby-Killer," "Nigger-Lover"

A notably ugly election just keeps getting uglier. 


Huffington Post

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Vandals spray-painted the words "Baby Killer" on the campaign headquarters of Wayne Powell, the Democrat challenging Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.), and wrote "Nigger Lover" on a sign in front of another one of his offices, a Powell spokesman confirmed Saturday to The Huffington Post.

A tipster gave HuffPost a heads up on the incidents, and Powell campaign spokesman Brendan MacArthur confirmed the vandalism at the Midlothian and Henrico offices. MacArthur said the attacks happened Friday night and police departments in both counties have been alerted.

There have been a number of similar incidents. An Obama campaign office in Colorado was vandalized with Swastikas last month. A short time later, shots were fired at a different Colorado campaign HQ.
An Obama field office in Florida was burglarized this week, but that appears to have been a theft, rather than a pollitically motivated act.
