What Fresh Hell Is This?

Vandals Toss Brick Through Window of Kraus Supporter

According to Kraus supporters, the window pictured below was broken sometime between late Friday night and early Saturday morning.

What was in the window?

A 62 inch TV that playing a Bruce Kraus full length commercial. The television was damaged along with the window.

The vandalism occurred at the corner of 18th and Carson Street.

The Kraus Campaign noted that in the last 6 weeks "nearly 100 of our campaign yard signs have been stolen, or defaced."

As many know, campaign signs are often "messed with" but that number seems a bit high to me for a City Council race. The Kraus campaign had remained silent on the stolen/defaced signs until the TV incident.

Of course, there is no evidence that the window and TV were vandalized by anyone connected with the Koch campaign -- as this happened on a weekend night on the South Side, it may have just been kids or drunks or drunken kids.

The Kraus Campaign is hopeful that a nearby PNC bank's surveillance camera may have caught the vandals in the act.

I'm trying to find out if it was this Kraus ad at YouTube.

Is it just me, or is it getting really ugly out there?
