Wisconsin's GOP field office in Milwaukee vandalized

NOW: Wisconsin’s GOP field office in Milwaukee vandalized


MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Wisconsin's GOP field office located in Milwaukee was vandalized overnight Tuesday, Feb. 18. 

In a video tweeted by the Wisconsin GOP, what appears to be black paint is splattered all over the front windows of the office near Dr. Martin Luther King Drive and North Avenue. 

The Wisconsin GOP tweeted the following caption: "This won’t change our commitment to reaching voters in the community. What kind of intolerance can we expect to see when Democrats bring their convention to Milwaukee this summer?"

The Republican Party of Wisconsin says they won't be deterred by the vandalism. 

"We're here," said Chairman Andrew Hitt. "We want to be part of this community, that's not going to change."

Vandals tagged the word "scum" on a backdoor and spray painted windows. 

Officials say the building's cameras weren't working at the time. 

Milwaukee police are investigating.

Did the vandals pardon any criminals doing time in Federal Penitentiaries?
Convicted of a crime used to mean something. No more.

Everyone opposes the criminality these R's support behind Trump. Even vandals.
Their fake message of racial equality fools no one.
We are going to vote you out and slam the door behind you in November.
And let the actual-real criminal investigations commence. You first, Trump.
