Seminole County Republican Building Vandalized
Officials reported that the front of the Seminole County GOP office building had offensive messages sprayed across it, and its front doors were glued shut in recent vandalism. The damage was discovered Monday morning at the Seminole County Republican Party building in the Orlando suburb of Casselberry.
A message that read: “Eat (expletive) Fascists” with an encircled “A” was spray painted on the exterior of the building.
County GOP State Committeeman Jesse Phillips said the building has cameras inside the offices but not on the exterior of the building, making identifying the perpetrators nearly impossible. It appears that no one got inside the building, and nothing had been stolen.
“The intimidation is shameful. Hopefully this is the last of it.”
Despite his hope, Phillips said the locks would need to be replaced and general security upgraded to prevent this from happening again in the future.
The Seminole County GOP office was vandalized overnight. The criminals echoed Biden’s “fascists” slander.

Phillips could not comment on what got the Seminole county office attacked specifically, but other recent vandalization came directly following the overturning of the Supreme Court Case Roe v Wade.
Some have expressed their theories about who the vandals were and why they attacked.
Awfully nice of the Seminole County Antifa chapter to give Ronna a talking point while leaving the Republican logo untouched. pic.twitter.com/8jKCUvI4uX

Antifa has not taken credit for the attack, but the circled-A anarchist symbol, while being generic, is associated with the group.
Seminole County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating the incident.
