Southold Democrats Offering $1,000 Reward to Find Obama Car Vandal

Committee Chairman says spray paint vandalism is 'new low' in attacks on Democratic candidates.

Southold Town Democratic Committee Chairman Arthur Tillman said that the committee is offering $1,000 to anyone who can tell Southold Town Police who is responsible for the vandalization of the car of Democratic committee woman Sally Kahn.

Kahn reported to police on Oct. 23 that someone had vandalized her Honda Accord with black spray paint, covering up Obama and Bishop political bumper stickers. The car was parked in her driveway on North Bayview Road while she was away from home Sunday and Monday, when she told police she believes the vandalism occurred.

"This is new low in attacks on Democrats and their candidates," Tillman said. "The vandalism is politically motivated and is an attempt to stifle opposition and free speech. The Southold Democratic Party takes this crime with the utmost seriousness."

Call Southold Town Police at 631-765-2600 with any information.

Yo, Charliez... So the best you can do is find two old cases-- one of a notorious nutball and another of a pissed off ex-employee? If it were a real problem, Malkin would be all over it, but this is all she could dig up. And, none of this relates to the current case-- some nut trashing an office halfway across the country does not justify damaging a car here. Don't even try to play the "But he did it too..." game.

Clearly you DON'T know it all… or anything at all for that matter.

I think that YOU did it Tom. You certainly sound hateful enough and we must suppose that you're a Republican as well as you don't present any facts in your argument.

Exactly Diane. I concur.

We had all four tires on our car slashed with a knife in a parking lot in Southold a year ago at 6 pm. This was over $500 damage. We were the only car with Obama and other Dem. bumper stickers. The tire repair place said he had seen others vandalized in the town.
