(Headline USA) A suburban Detroit office of Democrat U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell has been broken into and ransacked, with memorabilia belonging to her late husband and longtime Congressman John Dingell damaged.
Dingell reported the break-in at the office in Dearborn and said it was being investigated by local and U.S. Capitol police. No staff were present when the alleged incident was said to have taken place.
“We are working with them to identify who is responsible and hold them accountable for their actions,” she said in a news release.
“Our door and windows were smashed and memorabilia – especially John’s items – was broken,” said Dingell, who represents Michigan’s heavily Democratic 12th Congressional District. “Thankfully, my staff and I are safe and no one was hurt, but we must also recognize the impact attacks like this one and constant threats have had on my staff and all Congressional staff. This needs to stop now.”
“We need to practice civility and kindness, not divisiveness and anger,” she added, apparently failing to recall her disgraceful fundraising attempts on the back of her uncivil encounter with Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Dingell also conveniently failed to recall her divisive portrayal of Kyle Rittenhouse, who she mocked as a “17-year-old white boy” walking down the street “with an assault weapon, and kill two people, and not be stopped, and offered a bottle of water.”
Dingell said her office has been receiving threats for months. It comes at a time of deep polarization between Democrats and Republicans and the Jan. 6 protests at the U.S. Capitol.
