'Baby Killer' And Racist Epithet Deface Campaign Offices Of Wayne Powell, Eric Cantor's Opponent
Vandals spray-painted the words "Baby Killer" on the campaign headquarters of Wayne Powell, the Democrat challenging Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.), and wrote "Nigger Lover" on a sign in front of another one of his offices, a Powell spokesman confirmed Saturday to The Huffington Post.
A tipster gave HuffPost a heads up on the incidents, and Powell campaign spokesman Brendan MacArthur confirmed the vandalism at the Midlothian and Henrico offices. MacArthur said the attacks happened Friday night and police departments in both counties have been alerted.
Campaign staffers discovered the attacks on Saturday morning. One staffer snapped a photo at the Midlothian office, where "Baby Killer" was painted on the exterior of the building. At the Henrico office, a Powell campaign sign was vandalized with the racist epithet.
Powell is hoping to unseat Cantor in Virginia's 7th District, which includes parts of Richmond and its suburbs in Henrico and Chesterfield Counties, along with Page and Rappahannock counties. The district is ranked safely Republican by Roll Call.

4. If someone did, you can rest assured it would be a national story.
Fox would do hour long segments on how the brave, besieged, moral Conservatives are so oppressed by those evil brownshirt liberals.

3. Are they so naive to think that all abortions will end if Roe is taken away?
This always kills me.
I've heard them pray for "the end to abortions" in church. Ain't going to happen, folks.
They've been around for thousands of years in one way or another and will continue to go on if Roe V Wade is taken off the books by the SC.
What they mean is they want the end to "legal abortions" - why don't they just say that?
