Still At It

Anti-republican vandalism continues (HT: When Angry Democrats Attack):

A Republican Party committee office on the North Side has been vandalized three times since the Nov. 2 election, police said.

Three incendiary devices were thrown through the front window of the 43rd Ward Republicans headquarters, 2727 N. Halsted, on Monday night, Chicago police said. A wall was scorched, but only minimal damage was reported.

Suzanne Davis, committeewoman for the organization, said the fire was the latest in a series of incidents at the headquarters. Just after midnight Nov. 3, a brick was launched through the front window as people watched the presidential election results, and the next morning another window was discovered broken.

Other area Republican party offices have been the target of vandals, but it's rare for the harassment to continue after an election, officials said. Davis said the committee is considering installing an alarm system and bars for the windows.

Mister Daley, shut off your machine!
