Mitch McConnell, Nancy Pelosi’s homes vandalized in COVID-19 acts of protest


In a statement on Saturday, McConnell said, “I’ve spent my career fighting for the first amendment [which protects free speech] and defending peaceful protest. I appreciate every Kentuckian who has engaged in the democratic process whether they agree with me or not.”

He added, “This is different. 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.”

In a tweet, Democratic governor Andy Beshear called the vandalism “unacceptable”.

Beshear said, “While the First Amendment protects our freedom of speech, vandalism is reprehensible and never acceptable for any reason.”

The financial relief deal earned overwhelming support from both Democrats and Republicans. The White House has earlier confirmed that outgoing President Donald Trump would sign off on the bill.
