    Mitch Mcconnell and Nancy Pelosi had their homes vandalized due to the Stimulus checks debate

    https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/02/polit...zed/index.html

    . CNN)The homes of the two highest-ranking members of Congress ? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell ? have been vandalized, police said, after the Senate stalled Friday on increasing stimulus checks to $2,000 for millions of Americans.

    After McConnell's Louisville home was marked with graffiti early Saturday morning, the Kentucky Republican denounced the incident as a "radical tantrum."
    "Vandalism and the politics of fear have no place in our society. My wife and I have never been intimidated by this toxic playbook. We just hope our neighbors in Louisville aren't too inconvenienced by this radical tantrum," McConnell said in a statement.
    "Were's (sic) my money" was scrawled on McConnell's front door in what looks like white spray paint, according to photos from the scene taken by CNN affiliate WDRB.

    Louisville Metro Police Department's 5th Division is investigating the matter and have not yet identified any suspect(s), spokesman Dwight Mitchell said.
    Early Friday morning, a home in San Francisco belonging to Pelosi was vandalized, according to the San Francisco Police Department.
    "Unidentified suspect(s) had painted graffiti on the garage door and left a pig's head on the sidewalk," the police department said in a statement obtained by CNN.
    The SFPD Special Investigations Division is investigating. CNN has reached out to Pelosi for comment.
    The two separate incidents come as Senate Democrats and independent Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont pushed, without success, for a Senate vote on $2,000 stimulus checks Friday as the clock winds down on the 116th Congress.
    The effort was blocked by Senate Republicans including McConnell, who have largely argued that increasing stimulus checks would not be the kind of "targeted relief" necessary to respond to the economic distress caused by the pandemic, despite the fact that President Donald Trump has called for that amount and the House of Representatives on Monday passed a measure to increase the direct payments to Americans.
    McConnell has been critical of the push to increase the checks, multiple times saying the amount is "simply not the right approach" and repeating an argument that much of it is "socialism for rich people."
    Pelosi and Democrats moved quickly to bring legislation on increased payments after Trump complained following last week's bipartisan effort that included $600 stimulus checks for many Americans. The House passed that legislation on Monday.
    The second stimulus package that Congress did pass included $600 direct payments, half the amount provided in the first round of checks, which went out in the spring.

    SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) — Apparent frustration over the lack of federal financial support spilled out into the streets of San Francisco on Friday.

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s house was vandalized with messages saying $2,000 isn’t even enough.

    Vandals wasted no time with the new year as they left Pelosi’s home with fake blood and a pig’s head.

    Some messages were also left for the speaker as it appears the vandals were upset with the failed $2,000 government stimulus checks.

    “Cancel rent!” and “We want everything!” were seen in big black letters on Pelosi’s garage.

    “It’s a fairly cowardly way to go about expressing your opinion,” Audrey Carlson told NewsNation affiliate KRON.

    Audrey Carlson has lived in this neighborhood for almost 40 years.

    She’s seen the Speaker’s house become the site of several recent protests.

    In September, people expressed outrage over Pelosi going to a San Francisco hair salon that should have been closed under stay at home orders.

    This latest backlash now covered with black garbage bags appears to be over COVID-19 relief and the government failing to give out $2,000 stimulus checks.

    Neighbors say the vandalism is counter productive.

    “I don’t think that this is a useful way to go about it and it’s a terrible start to this new year when we’re hoping for less anger and hatred than we’ve had to deal with for the last year,” Carlson said.

    The House Speaker’s office has not responded to requests for comment.

    San Francisco police say they are right now investigating this vandalism.

    At this time they do not have any suspects.

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (NewsNation Now) — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s home has been vandalized. This backlash stems from the senator’s recent block of $2,000 stimulus checks.

    Spray painted messages on his Highlands home read, “were’s my money?” and “Mitch kills poor” among other expletives written across the front door and bricks of the Kentucky residence.

    “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,” told NewsNation in a statement on Saturday.

    This act comes hours after Sen. Nancy Pelosi’s house was vandalized with messages saying “$2k cancel rent.” The vandals also left behind fake blood and a pig’s head.

    “This is different. Vandalism and the politics of fear have no place in our society, McConnell added. “My wife and I have never been intimidated by this toxic playbook. We just hope our neighbors in Louisville aren’t too inconvenienced by this radical tantrum.”

    The Louisville Metro Police Department is investigating. It is not known if the Senator was home during the incident.

    Speaking of Mitch McConnell, this happened today during a press briefing. I am not a fan of his, but I find it sad to watch. Clearly there needs to be term limits.

    It was a stroke. For sure.

    Conspiracy Theorists:

    He's a robot in a human suit and errored out.

    I'm only going to say this once (and I am including Biden in this)

    TERM LIMITS

    Yes, Biden isn't beyond his term limits, but he's just not at an age where he should be serving again. I blame the Democrats for not getting their shit together and procuring a better candidate against the hate. THEY HAD FOUR YEARS to accomplish this and didn't. Which makes me think that they really didn't want it.

    That's what I don't understand...why there aren't better candidates on both sides. I mean, all we have to choose from is an orange maniac versus a dude that uses a sippy cup?

    He does. I think he is quite literally circling the drain.

    He's fucked. She's watching him like a hawk. He is having some sort of stroke or mini stroke/seizure issue. He's not fit to serve.

    Not a fan of Ted Cruz by any means, but he has introduced an amendment to impose term limits: https://www.cruz.senate.gov/newsroom...s-for-congress
