House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s house in San Francisco was spray-painted and a pig’s head was left on her sidewalk in the early morning hours of New Year’s Day in apparent criticism of Congress over insufficient coronavirus pandemic relief.
Police responded around 2 a.m. to a report of vandalism at the red-brick home in the 2600 block of Broadway in the city’s wealthy Pacific Heights neighborhood.
Responding officers found that suspects had “painted graffiti on the garage door and left a pig’s head on the sidewalk,” police said in an email.
Authorities did not say if they have identified suspects in the crime and asked the public to assist in the investigation.
The House speaker wasn’t the only prominent member of Congress targeted. Spray paint on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s door in Kentucky on Saturday read, “WERES MY MONEY,” and “MITCH KILLS THE POOR” was scrawled over a window. A profanity directed at the Republican senator was painted under the mailbox.
McConnell said he and his wife are not intimidated by the vandalism, which he called a “radical tantrum.”
Pelosi’s press office did not respond to requests for comment.
TMZ first reported Friday that Pelosi’s house had been vandalized on New Year’s Day after a Twitter account identifying as a “Pro Trump Patriot” and “Conservative Creator” posted a photograph of a spray-painted garage door, describing it as Pelosi’s house.
