(CNN) – Police in the city that will host the Republican National Convention next week are looking for suspects in the vandalism of Barack Obama’s St. Paul campaign offices.
Police spokesman Peter Panos said the incident occurred just after 1 a.m. CT Sunday. Arriving officers found two large plate glass windows shattered, a glass door “smashed out,” and paint splattered inside and outside the building.
The storefront offices on Raymond Avenue had several Obama campaign signs hanging on it. The signs remained on some of the broken windows while large shards of glass covered the sidewalk in front of the building and the floor inside.
One campaign worker was in a lower level of the building when the vandalism occurred. Panos said they do not believe the suspects were aware anyone was inside, and “their intent was not to hurt anyone.” He said no threats were received, and the incident is being investigating as a local property crime case. Federal authorities were not alerted.
Police are reviewing security videotapes from nearby businesses to see if any suspects could be identified. They have issued an appeal for anyone with information to contact officers or a Crimestoppers tip line.
Boy! Obama does very underhanded thing he can do to keep his name in the limelight. Eat it up all you can Obama because soon you will be a fading nightmare.
ANGER IS A BAD THING. IF THE MEDIA WOULD STOP REPORTING SO MUCH NEGATIVITY WHERE OBAMA CLINTON IS CONCERN MAYBE PEOPLE WOULD NOT THINK OF HURTING EACH OTHER.
THIS IS OBAMA-08 THE PRESIDENT.
Expect to see more of this and big time demonstrations!
Obama will lose not only because he has no experience but because he has inspired a movement of sexism and racism that has spawned an immense and extremely angry divisiveness! :(
Obama has been very bad for America, and the sooner he fades from the scene the better!
The arrogant, babbling Biden adds nothing helpful!
Don't waste your vote! Vote for John McCain 08 and Hillary Clinton 2012! :)
If this is how Senator McCain's supporters express their political views, I believe I will vote for the other guy.
Biden demeans himself by joining the Obama ticket! :(
PUMA's ... be careful in Denver, this hate group is violent and will do anything to stop Barack Obama ...
Sounds like a false flag operation to me. The dems want moral relativity after the Islamic extremist mailed death threats to McCain, so they stage this "attack" on his office nearest the GOP. It's too convenient a story to be true. Typical dems.
Too bad it will never be linked back to BHO.
P.U.M.A.--O P E R A T I O N
Ok, where was John McCain at 1AM Sunday morning?
Panos said they do not believe the suspects were aware anyone was inside, and “their intent was not to hurt anyone.”
What I am wondering is how does Police spokesman Peter Panos know that their intent was not to hurt anyone? Maybe it is just because they didn't know a campaign worker was in the building that he was not hurt.
Sad. Very sad.
What Morons! They obviously lack Knowledge. I wonder how much they paid for gas to drive over there! The only candidate who can bring this country around and this is what they do some people are just plain ole Dumb! Put em in Jail n throw away the keys!
This is the second office of Mr. Obama to be damaged. Everyone knows who is doing this. There are a lot of tic off people out there because of Mrs. Clinton. There are crazy people in this world but God is watching them and they will be punished.
Republicans at it again! Debug your offices.
A local property crime it may be, but more importantly, it is a political crime, bespeaking the degradation of the country's political culture.
Now wait for the anti-Obama crowd to legitimize this act.
What a shame. Incidents like this just deepens my support for Obama and an Obama Presidency.
There will always be opposition in the face of greatness... This election bigger than the biggots and racist that plague of democracy... There is only one America...
not surprising. why isn't cnn reporting that on tv?
Ok all of you brainwashed Obama supporters, waiting for you to say McCain had something to do with it because I know you will.
I live two miles away from the Obama St. Paul office. I
obama could not handle the giving McCain press about having being sent threatening letters so he had his kool aid kids do the damage.
Also is it not strange when ever obama falls in the polls some kind of theatrics happens to his campaign.
I have a question; who would be the candidate if Obama could suddenly not run?
There was Clinton's comment about R Kennedy, Jackson's 'cut his you know what' off, (with no police arrest), the guy in Florida who was arrested for similar comments (why?), and the mysterious and almost deadly incident on his jet when a escape ramp opened during flight. Now this vandalism.
Makes me wonder what the rules are for succession. 2nd place finisher? VP choice? or new primary?
Obama is the hands down choice for president if we were a country of critical-minded thinkers who truly cared about doing the best in short-term to achieve better outcomes for all in the long-run. Unfortunately, it is incidents like these that remind me of the hostility that drives people away from reason. Wake Up America – We Are One!!!
