Unhinged Democrat Hurls Rocks At GOP Headquarters

I'm so happy the new age of civility promised by the Democrats is bearing fruit.
Authorities arrested a man on Tuesday who, they said, was caught on camera throwing rocks at the Republican Headquarters building in Columbus.

Officials said windows at the headquarters on South 5th Street have been broken nearly a dozen times, NBC 4's Erin Tate reported.

They also said staff members have nearly been pelted with thrown objects.

Republicans said they thought the vandalism would die down after the recent elections, but that wasn’t the case.

“We just got tired of it,” McClelland said. “So we, with the help of Columbus police, did a few stakeouts of our own and happened to catch this guy the other night.”

Police arrested 58-year-old Kenneth Dwayne Thomas in connection with the incident.

He is currently being held at the Franklin County jail and police said he will face criminal damaging charges, Tate reported.

According to investigators, Thomas also made threats toward President George W. Bush and Vice-President Dick Cheney.

Officials said he will be investigated by the Secret Service because of those comments, Tate reported.

I know there are people out there who don’t like Republicans,” McClelland said. “But to say that we’re a cancer and should be exterminated, according to what he said to police, that’s a little over the top.

A little over the top, perhaps, but certainly not out of the mainstream of modern Democrat thought.
