Confirming an earlier report I had of an Ohio incident. Go Buckeyes! Where's the "M Go Blue!" crowd?
PLEASANT RIDGE – Someone reportedly threw a fist-sized rock through the front window of the Hamilton County Democratic Party headquarters Sunday night after Congress passed the landmark health insurance overhaul.
Caleb Faux, the party’s executive director, finds it hard to believe the incident wasn’t related to the legislation’s passing.
“I have to assume that it did,” Faux said. “We’ve been here for three years and we’ve never had an incident of that kind.”
According to Faux, the rock didn’t shatter the window, which is made of heavy plate glass. It did, however, make a hole the size of a half dollar coin and crack the glass.
Faux estimates the window will cost several hundred dollars to replace. He had not yet filed a police report.
Faux connected the rock-tossing with the provocative language associated with the healthcare bill.
“There’s certainly room for political disagreement, but carrying it to that extent is highly inappropriate,” Faux said.
“I don’t believe throwing rocks is an expression of free speech,” he added.
