The Marion Star reported:
Two Republican party officials were shocked to hear someone had thrown a brick through a window at their headquarters downtown — with a message directed at stopping conservatism.
“Stop the right wing,” was written in purple ink on a piece of notebook paper.
“The bottom was torn off of it, maybe like they made a mistake or something when they were writing it the first time,” said Kenneth Stiverson, president of the Marion County Republican Club.
Employees at the law offices next door to the headquarters, at 114 S. Main St., called party members to let them know the window had been broken Tuesday.
Police were called and took the brick and note as evidence.
Stiverson said he didn’t think people in Marion would do such a thing. Republican party members who were helping to clean up found the note after they found the brick.
“You hear about this stuff in the big cities,” he said. “I didn’t think there was anyone in Marion that would do anything like that.”
