BERNIE SANDERS: Shots Fired at My Nevada Campaign HQ and Housing Complex Ransacked
Shots were fired into the Bernie Sanders Nevada Campaign Headquarters.

Bernie wrote about the discovery today in a press release.
Weekly Standard reported:
“Within the last few days there have been a number of criticisms made against my campaign organization. Party leaders in Nevada, for example, claim that the Sanders campaign has a ‘penchant for violence.’ That is nonsense. Our campaign has held giant rallies all across this country, including in high-crime areas, and there have been zero reports of violence. Our campaign of course believes in non-violent change and it goes without saying that I condemn any and all forms of violence, including the personal harassment of individuals. But, when we speak of violence, I should add here that months ago, during the Nevada campaign, shots were fired into my campaign office in Nevada and apartment housing complex my campaign staff lived in was broken into and ransacked.
“If the Democratic Party is to be successful in November, it is imperative that all state parties treat our campaign supporters with fairness and the respect that they have earned. I am happy to say that has been the case at state conventions in Maine, Alaska, Colorado and Hawaii where good discussions were held and democratic decisions were reached. Unfortunately, that was not the case at the Nevada convention. At that convention the Democratic leadership used its power to prevent a fair and transparent process from taking place.
A bullet hole was discovered in a storefront window at the Bernie Sanders campaign headquarters in northwest Las Vegas in January, on the same day the Socialist presidential candidate was on site.
