'TRUMP' and 'MAGA' Spray Painted on Headstones in Jewish Cemetery Ahead of Election Day
The Michigan Democratic Jewish Caucus called the vandalism an act of voter intimidation.
The words “TRUMP” and “MAGA” were found spray painted across six headstones at a Jewish cemetery in Grand Rapids, Michigan, just as the country enters its most tense presidential election yet. Authorities said they began investigating the vandalism at Ahavas Achim Cemetery on Monday – the day before Election Day.
The graffiti, done with bright red spray paint, appeared relatively new when authorities arrived on the scene, Grand Rapids Sergeant John Wittkowski said in a statement, according to WWMT.
Authorities have not yet identified any suspects, and no additional evidence was located on the scene.
The Michigan Democratic Jewish Caucus called the vandalism a way of intimidating Donald Trump's opponents.
“Time and time again, the President of the United States has sided with anti-Semites, white supremacists, racists, and bigots of all kinds. Now, our country is paying the price,” the organization's founder and chair Noah Arbit said in a statement. “Tomorrow, we will end it.”
