North Carolina GOP headquarters firebombed, no one hurt
RALEIGH, N.C. -
A Republican office near Raleigh, N.C., was targeted by vandals Saturday night. Authorities say a bottle filled with a flammable substance was thrown through the window at the Orange County GOP headquarters and burned the interior and some furniture.
Vandals also spray painted graffiti, including a swastika and the words, “Nazi Republicans leave town or else,” on the side of a business adjacent to the headquarters. North Carolina GOP leaders have requested extra security after the incident.
“It is meant to scare and intimidate people from volunteering, from working at this office and from working at other offices across the state. But we are going to the necessary precautions to do whatever it takes to keep our people safe and keep them working,” said Dallas Woodhouse, Executive Director of NC Republicans.
