Oakland city's Mayor Libby Schaaf's home was vandalized early yesterday morning:
Roughly a dozen mask wearing people approached her home, yelling and lighting off fireworks around 2 a.m., according to neighbors.
Justin Berton, Schaaf's spokesperson issued the following statement:
“An attack at the home of a publicly elected official does not advance democracy. Around 2 a.m. vandals shot projectiles at the Mayor’s home, set off fireworks, and graffitied her home with paint. This attack, designed to intimidate the Mayor and strike fear into her family, will not stop her from advocating for the policies she believes are in the best long-term interests of her beloved hometown. Like all Oaklanders, she supports passionate protest but does not support tactics meant to harm and terrorize others.”
Police are investigating the incident.
