District Republicans often feel like theyre metaphorically under fire in a city thats 70 percent Democratic. But what happened last night appears to be unprecedented.
Paul Craney, executive director of the D.C. Republican Committee, says that a shooter took out the windows at the GOPs storefront office, near 13th and K streets NW, with a small-caliber projectile, possibly from an air gun.
Craney said he got a call from an alarm company early Wednesday morning but didnt pick up the call. And when he showed up to work this morning the alarm was on. But he didnt notice the fenestration damage until later in the day. I was getting lunch, and noticed: Oh my god, our windows are all shot up.
While on the phone with a reporter, Craney discovered an approximately BB-sized piece of shot on the ground outside the window.

Hilarious. Instead of trumping up the story as hate motivated vandalism as he would if a GOP office were not the target the writer calls the vandal an 'apparent shooter' then includes a picture showing how ridiculously small the projectile is.
Its all the in presentation.

This is Washington DC. I'm surprised shell casings were not on the ground.

Liken Republicans to Hitler and speak about how they want to starve children and old people enough and it can’t be surprising that some resourcefil person would eventually decide to de-Hitlerize.
