McConnell responded to the incident in a statement on Saturday calling it a "radical tantrum," the Louisville Courier-Journal reported. "I've spent my career fighting for the First Amendment and defending peaceful protest. I appreciate every Kentuckian who has engaged in the democratic process whether they agree with me or not," McConnell said, according to the Courier-Journal. "Vandalism and the politics of fear have no place in our society," he added. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's California home on Friday morning was also found vandalized. The words"$2k CANCEL RENT!" were spray-painted on her white garage door and a deceased pig's head coated in fake blood was found on her driveway.
