For the second time in a week, a Colorado field office for President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign has been targeted.
KUSA-TV reported Friday that the campaign’s field office in Conifer, Colorado, was found with swastikas spray-painted on it.
According to The Denver Post, a spokesperson for the Johnson County Sheriff’s Department said a deputy answering a vandalism report that morning found three windows and five campaign signs for the president had been vandalized, though he did not know what had been spray-painted on them.
The swastika symbol is widely associated with the Nazi parties and accompanying philosophies like white supremacy.
Conifer is less than 60 miles away from Denver, where a gunshot was fired at an Obama campaign field office Oct. 12. A Denver Police spokesman said the bullet was recovered from inside the office, but he did not have an update on that investigation.
Members of the Obama campaign at the Conifer office refused to comment on Friday’s incident.
