US Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell’s Kentucky home was found defaced with red and white graffiti on Saturday morning — a response to his objection to increasing stimulus checks from $600 to $2,000 earlier this week.
A photo of the door of McConnell’s home in Louisville, Kentucky shows the spray-painted message stating “Weres my money”, according to WDRB-TV. The news station reported local authorities are not aware of the perpetrators responsible for the vandalism.
WDRB-TV’s Grace Hayba who broadcasted live in front of his residence said McConnell’s home doesn’t appear to have any additional damage.

McConnell responded to the incident in a statement on Saturday calling it a “radical tantrum,” the Louisville Courier-Journal reported.
“I’ve spent my career fighting for the First Amendment and defending peaceful protest. I appreciate every Kentuckian who has engaged in the democratic process whether they agree with me or not,” McConnell said, according to the Courier-Journal.
“Vandalism and the politics of fear have no place in our society,” he added.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s California home on Friday morning was also found vandalized. The words“$2k CANCEL RENT!” were spray-painted on her white garage door and a deceased pig’s head coated in fake blood was found on her driveway.
