|Wendy Rogers isn't saying lefties vandalized her house, but her house was vandalized, and lefties have been rude.|
Republican Congressional candidate Wendy Rogers says her house was vandalized the day she announced her candidacy, and one of her campaign staffers thinks "the Left" might have something to do with it.
An email from the Rogers campaign says her Tempe home was vandalized on Saturday night, about 12 hours after the Air Force vet sent out an email saying she's running for Congress in the state's newly formed Ninth District.
Aside from noting the shooting of former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords "weighs heavily on everyone's mind," the campaign adds, "Police recommended they investigate because of the coincidental timing of this attack with Rogers' campaign announcement amid the backdrop of recent history of political violence in Arizona."
One of Rogers' campaign staffers has an opinion.
"I have been around campaigns for two decades," campaign official Joe Giardiello says. "I thought I had seen it all. But attacking a candidate's home and family is something we would expect in a third-world dictatorship. The hatred and anger already coming from the Left because of Wendy's unwavering commitment is downright frightening. In light of recent events in Arizona, we can't be too careful." More »
