Load Of Horse Manure Dumped At Ohio Democratic HQ

Democratic Party volunteers in Ohio were greeted to their offices Tuesday morning by a big steaming pile of horse manure.

The Warren County sheriff's department is investigating the political prank of poop that blocked the entrance to the building.

CBS Cincinnati writes:

[Warren County Democratic chair Beth] Goldenfield says no one has claimed responsibility for the prank. She says this election cycle has been "very contentious", and says an unprecedented number of party signs have been stolen leading up to today's incident.

Goldenfield goes on to say, "It's really unfortunate that people can't have respectful disagreements... We're not going to be discouraged by it. It's just very disappointing. It will probably motivate our people even more but it's also a very disrespectful thing to do."

Authorities say the building has security cameras, but they have no suspects or leads. We probably shouldn't be laughing, but we can't help it. The last thing this election season needs is more people spewing shit everywhere.
