Vandals spray paint "rape" at GOP headquarters in Rockford IL

Demoralized northern Illinois city Rockford, which seems like it is the setting of every depressing Bruce Springsteen song from the 1980s, has enough problems without some hooligan spray painting "rape" on the county headquarters of the GOP.

From the Rockford Register Star:
The Winnebago County Republican Headquarters was vandalized with sprawling spray paint of the words “rape” and “shame” all across the building at 515 N. Court St. downtown.

Rockford police officers at the building said the graffiti was spotted by an officer on patrol shortly before 10 a.m. Sunday.

“I hope whoever is responsible for this will be brought to justice,” state Rep. John Cabello, R-Machesney Park, wrote on his Facebook page. “You are a coward for doing it unless you come forward!”

Reached by phone, Cabello said, “We can have a good spirited debate, but the minute you start to damage other people’s property, you’ve crossed the line.”
Also spray painted at the GOP HQ was 9/27/18, the day when Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh testified on the former's accusation of assault on the latter.
