Aug 27, 2017

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — The Republican Party of Kentucky is denouncing vandalism scrawled on a county GOP office.

WLEX-TV reports that someone scrawled "Nazi Scum" and "Die Nazi!" on the storefront of the Republican Party of Fayette County.

“Nazi scum” and “Die Nazi!” were painted across the front of the Republican Party of Fayette County headquarters on Southland Drive in Lexington either late Friday or early Saturday. It was the second act of vandalism at the office since Republican President Donald Trump’s election in November.

State GOP spokesman Tres Watson says the graffiti is the work of "hate-filled vandals whose only goal is to further divide" people.

Lexington Mayor Jim Gray tweet that the city has no tolerance for vandalism. The Kentucky Democratic Party says in a statement that it denounces hate and racism, but they cannot expect to eradicate it through violent or destructive behavior.
