Graffiti on the exterior of the Alamance County GOP headquarters - censored by WFAE

The North Carolina GOP says for the second time in less than a month, one of its local offices has been vandalized. This time, someone spray painted "F--k Trump yes sir" on the outside of the Alamance County Republican party headquarters.

"This marks the second crime of this nature in my district within a month," Republican Representative Mark Walker said in a statement, "First the firebombing at the Orange County GOP and then similar graffiti profanity again here at the Alamance GOP offices."

Last month, someone spray painted a swastika and the words "Nazi Republicans leave town or else" on a building adjacent to the Orange County GOP office. The office itself was partially damaged by a bottle of flammable liquid tossed through the front windows.

"This is deeply troubling to our Alamance County GOP members and volunteers, but even more so, this is troubling for our nation," Alamance County GOP Chairman Ben York said in a statement, vowing to continue preparations ahead of the election. "We are open for business, and have a lot of work to do in the next four days, and nothing is going to get in our way."

Representative Walker, meanwhile, said the local GOP plans to move past the incident. "I have every confidence that Alamance County GOP will continue to stand strong for the cause of liberty and move forward with forgiveness towards those who have committed this act," he said.
