LOUISVILLE, KY — The Kentucky home of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was vandalized this weekend after the GOP leader blocked a House vote to send $2,000 direct coronavirus relief payments to Americans.

On Saturday morning, messages like "where's my money" and other expletives were written with spray paint across the front door and bricks of McConnell's home, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported.

The vandalism was reported just a day after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco home sustained similar damage.
