Harris County Democratic Party Headquarters Vandalized Ahead of Election Day
'This Will Not Distract Us From Our Mission to Elect Democrats,' Says Party Chair
HOUSTON -- Harris County Democratic Party officials arrived at their offices Monday to find the site had been vandalized with anti-election, pro-revolution messaging.
The vandals used red spray paint to write "Election No, Revolution Yes" with a drawing of a sickle and hammer symbol across the front of the building. The entryway door was covered with dripping red paint.
"This is what happens when Republicans are losing," said Lillie Schechter, Harris County Democratic Party Chair. "They use scare tactics and intimidation to scare voters."
The vandals also put Super Glue in the locks so the office could not be entered.
"This will not distract us from our mission to elect Democrats up and down the ballot, making people’s lives better by enacting positive progressive policy," Schechter said.
