GOP office vandalized ahead of far-right event

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Vandals damaged a Republican office in Manhattan Friday that is set to host the founder of a far-right men’s organization.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Marc Molinaro says the damage includes smashed windows, a spray-painted door and glue put in the locks at the Metropolitan Republican Club, a longtime gathering spot for Republicans. Molinaro, the Dutchess County executive, says the office serves as one of his campaign’s headquarters.

State party officials say a note was left behind claiming the damage was “just the beginning.” The club was scheduled to host an event Friday night with conservative Gavin McInnes, the founder of a far-right men’s organization known as the Proud Boys.

Republicans called on Democrats to denounce the vandalism. The director of the state Democratic party condemned the act as repugnant.
