The Douglas County Republican Headquarters in downtown Roseburg was vandalized again early Wednesday morning.
Nine windows and a door were broken between 2 and 3 a.m., Douglas County Republican Party Chair Valynn Currie said Wednesday. The vandalism was similar to a vandalism incident at the building in May, and it was the fifth time the headquarters have been vandalized in recent months.
Currie estimated the cost to repair the damage at about $2,000.
The neighboring parking garage was also vandalized with an anti-Trump message painted in red letters, containing profanity.
Currie believes supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden are to blame.
“Here we go again. I’m not going to say antifa, I’m not going to say Black Lives Matter, I’m just going to say it’s the Biden supporters, because obviously. We don’t know who did it, but we’re going to find out,” she said.
She said whoever did it, they weren’t part of a legitimate protest.
“Where’s the civility, and how can you justify this type of action? I don’t think it can be justified,” Currie said.
The May incident also involved the spray-painted threatening message “Kill Trump.” Earlier incidents included window breakage, eggs being smashed against the building, as well as a message saying “Burn it down” painted on the side of the building.
Currie said she believes the cameras at the building will have captured images of the vandal or vandals who created Wednesday’s damage.
“We’re doing some work with the cameras right now and we’re going to get those chips to police and see if they can ID the person. Of course, they’ll probably have a black hood on and black mask and sunglasses,” she said.
Still, she believes the perpetrator, or perpetrators, will be caught.
Currie said the Republicans will fix the damage, but they won’t do it with insurance money. No one will cover their risk for glass breakage, she said.
