Vandals targeted House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy's district office in a brazen attack yesterday. 

Per The Daily Caller:
 

McCarthy, whose local office is in Bakersfield, Calif., posted photos of the suspects and some of the damage. Two young men were caught on surveillance camera outside of the office, which had its window smashed in by a large boulder.

“Does anyone know these two guys? They threw a boulder thru our office window and took office equipment,” McCarthy wrote on his Instagram account.

McCarthy’s office is not the first GOP office to be vandalized in recent weeks. A Republican Party office in Wyoming was intentionally set on fire just two days after it opened in September.

Vandals later hit The Metropolitan Republican Club on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in October, smashing windows and spray-painting anarchist signs on the doors.


House Republicans tapped McCarthy to replace retiring Rep. Paul Ryan as the next Speaker of the House.
