Homes of Pelosi and McConnell Vandalized After $2,000 Stimulus Bill Fail
On McConnell's Louisville, Kentucky home the words "WERES MY MONEY" were spray-painted on the front door. "MITCH KILLS THE POOR" was written in red on one of the windows.
“I’ve spent my career fighting for the First Amendment and defending peaceful protest. I appreciate every Kentuckian who has engaged in the democratic process whether they agree with me or not,” McConnell said.
“This is different. Vandalism and the politics of fear have no place in our society.”
McConnell stated that his wife and he were okay, but “hope our neighbors in Louisville aren’t too inconvenienced by this radical tantrum.”
At Pelosi's home in San Francisco, one of the garage doors included the words "$2K," "Cancel Rent!" and "We want everything!" Additionally, a pig's head and fake blood were left at the scene. Pelosi has not commented on the vandalism yet.
The House passed a bill increasing the stimulus payments from $600 to $2,000, but it was blocked by McConnel because he believed the bill had “no realistic path to quickly pass the Senate.”
“The Senate’s not going to be bullied into rushing out more borrowed money into the hands of Democrats’ rich friends who don’t need the help,” McConnell said on the Senate floor.
President Donald Trump supported the bill.
