Republican gubernatorial candidate Marc Molinaro says his Manhattan campaign headquarters were vandalized Thursday night by what he calls radical leftists.
The vandals smashed windows, sprayed painted a door, glued door locks and left a threatening note. In a statement, Molinaro said this type of political violence and rank vandalism is “unacceptable” and he called on Governor Andrew Cuomo to condemn this attack immediately and call for calm on the political left.
Molinaro added, “The building on East 83rd Street in Manhattan is the proud home of The Metropolitan Republican Club, an institution founded by supporters of Theodore Roosevelt in 1902. U.S. Presidents, Supreme Court justices, senators, congressman, and state officials have called “The Met Club” home for more than 100 years. Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia was a member of the club and announced his candidacy from its first floor ballroom, as did Mayor Rudy Giuliani in 1989. Mayor Mike Bloomberg was a member, as were Governors Nelson Rockefeller and George Pataki.”
