LONGWOOD, Fla. -- The home of a Central Florida Republican headquarters manager was shot up and damaged over his support of Sen. John McCain, the man told police.
Rog Coverely said several pellets pierced his Longwood home. Coverely showed several spiderwebbed-holes in the front windows of his home.
The Republican manager said he is convinced he was targeted because of new McCain signs he added around his home.
"All I can tell you is this, I have a very good relationship with my neighbors," Coverely said. "I mow my lawn. The only thing that has changed is I have two McCain signs in my front yard."
Coverely said he has taken about 300 calls concerning stolen or vandalized McCain signs in the area.
"It says this campaign is getting vicious," Coverely said.
Coverely said it appears Democrats are becoming more aggressive in the county.
"I wouldn't say slipping but I would say the Democrats have become far more aggressive in Seminole County because it is such a heavy Republican area," Coverely said.
Local 6 has learned that the attorney general's office is getting involved in area investigation and has asked to see police reports of sign vandalism and theft.
Meanwhile, McCain will be in Florida Thursday.
The Republican presidential nominee is speaking at Allstar Building Materials in Ormond Beach. Later he'll be in Sarasota for a "Joe the Plumber" bus tour rally at Robarts Arena.

DEMOCRAT PARTY ... SUBMIT or DIE
Islamic Terrorist .. SUBMIT OR DIE
Lock & load.
I also heard this morning on Bill Bennett’s program that Michelle Bachmans home in Minnesota has been vandalized. Someone spray painted “SCUM” on it. Doncha just love the tolerance of the left?
This is what will become more common place if you oppose BO during his administration!!!
This is the policy of CHANGE!!!!
These people are dangerous. Time for McCain and Palin to talk about this on the campaign trail.
This kind of evil will hopefully create more support for McCain in FL and everywhere else it happens. I hope local TV stations give it thorough coverage.
I-4 Corridor ping. This is where Florida elections are won (and lost).
The radical leftists are insane. I was listening to Michelle Bachman on Bill Bennett this morning and she said her home was vandalized and that the word “scum” was spray painted. Look what happened at the Republcan convention. Imagine what a McCain win will bring?
The 0bama SA strike again.
November 3rd will be kristallnacht.
Fear is a great motivator. Hussein as POTUS is the ultimate nightmare. These stories should have an effect on conservative GOTV across the fruited plain.
Obama: “Get in their face.”
Listen Republicans, and understand. The Democrats are out there. They can’t be bargained with. They can’t be reasoned with. They don’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And they absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.
The video above shows the gun control, we all will be needing:
Yep. That simple.
The headline seems true but misleading. Saying the house was “shot up” I was expecting firearms. As the damage is described it sounds like a pellet gun, most probably kids.
That’s bad enough just on its own terms but it’s not the SLA shootout.
Saw this on the local 11 PM news last night. They’re receiving hundreds of calls about McC-Palin vandalism in our area.
Yesterday I mentioned on another thread- driving around I’ve seen dozens of McC yard signs torn and dumped in the streets. A friend told me 3 cars in her neighborhood with McC stickers were badly keyed- and one windshield smashed.
Four years ago- in my complex there were tons of yard signs mostly Bush but lots of Kerry too. They ALL remained standing and undamaged til the middle of November.
This year- very few signs at all- mostly Obama- but I know many of the 04 Bush people and they’re voting for McC- but aren’t willing to risk signs.
Intimidation tactics are powerful.
Just like WV in 04.
Politics is the religion of the left. This is the most important thing in their lives.
In Minnesota, not only was Bachmann’s home vandalized, also Sen. Coleman (R), Sen Klobuchar (D), Congressman Ellison (D), Congressman Ramstad (R) and Congressman Kline (R).
All happened on the same night and the FBI is now involved.
It seems we have an equal opportunity whacko on our hands in the land of 10,000 lakes.
ACORN must have lots of gangstas among its ranks.
A thinning of the herds?
Heck, you've got a bona-fide whacko poised to be Senator!
“Politics is the religion of the Left”
——Yes, and it’s finally come full circle.
They finally found their Messiah.
They’ve been heading in that direction for a long
time, and found in Clinton their secular “saint”.
Now they’ve found one whose indeterminate “religion”
spreads in a flabby embrace around both Islam and Black
Liberation “Christian” theology, and it suits them fine, and is a perfect fit.
I think this stuff is getting worse because when the GOP ticket is attacked very personally, the press acts like it’s all OK to be uncivil, and says nothing.
Whether it’s the death threats painted on Norm Coleman’s garage, or sign stealing, or “Sarah is a CU__,” or shooting at houses, or the assault on cops by Obama supporters, none of it is worth saying a negative word.
It’s like Giuliani’s explanation of what happens in cities, if you allow graffitti and vandalism to go unchecked, you will have worse crimes. Same thing is happening now.
Well, that too. :(
I guess I should correct the state motto to land of 10,000 flakes, give or take a few million Franken voters.
Nah, he's a white middle class hard working male that happens to be Republican. He doesn't count.
Grim view of things to come if God withholds His mercy on our nation.
Anyone wonder why 0bama opposes the Castle Doctrine?
It makes it dangerous for his “volunteer brownshirts” to operate.
That tells me that Obama’s internal polling indicates that he is losing Minnesota.
some rioting, but significantly less death and suffering than an 0bama win will cause.
Or maybe he is just hitting the others to make it look that way. These people are scum at the lowest levels.
Don't piss off The One.
And they affect polling......it only takes a few scared grandmas to throw the polls totally out of whack. For people with tendencies toward paranoia, the Pubbies and Dem voters usually cancel each other out, but this year looks different. The "intimidation" from the press alone is huge.
I've always been one to take polls quite seriously, but there are times when they can be completely unreliable. I think this is one of those times.
The DemoKlan are reverting to their old Kluxer tactics of intimidation and violence.
Hmmmm. Well, the fact that Ellison and Klobuchar were vandalized doesn't point to that for me.
I also think Obama's probably polling pretty well here. It "is" Minnesota, after all. The deep blue cities of Minneapolis, St. Paul and Duluth will make sure they put 0bama on top, negating all the sane people in outstate areas. Also, ACORN is very active in Minneapolis.
These people are out of control.
I agree that there are no low boundaries considering how low the left will go.
I hope the FBI can get to the bottom of this. It had to be a very coordinated effort considering the territory they had to cover in one night.
Was he home at the time? If so, did he have a weapon to shoot back?
“All I can tell you is this, I have a very good relationship with my neighbors,” Coverely said. “I mow my lawn. The only thing that has changed is I have two McCain signs in my front yard.”
Well that’s some pretty solid proof.
Related. Buried report over the weekend:
TRUE COURAGE UNDER REAL FIRE!
“[Bus] arrived with a window shattered by a .22 caliber weapon.”
What a contrast the way McCain/Palin were low key about REAL gunfire on a campaign bus compared with ‘snipper fire’ and Biden’s ‘adventure’.
At the same time, I think these incidences need to be remembered!
What? Do you have a link?
“I mow my lawn with a bulletproof vest.”
IF you’re serious, then you are now officially the most paranoid person I’ve ever had contact with. Life must be a real drag for you.
OBAMA BROWNSHIRT PING!
This is getting to be a morning ‘ritual’. I sit down to have coffee and read Free Republic and it is article after article of Obama minion violence and intimidation all over the country!
Is there anything that can be done to stop the insanity before someone gets killed?
6 Minnesota politicians’ homes defaced / vandalized
Here you go. :)
