Anti-Obama office vandalized for second time in past week



SQUIRREL HILL, Pa. - For the second time in the past week, an anti-Obama office in Squirrel Hill was vandalized.

According to police, two vandals were caught on surveillance camera spray-painting the front window of a building that houses a Jewish group that promotes the message of defeating President Barack Obama.

Group coordinator Josh Wander said he's disappointed the building has been vandalized a second time.

"It happened once last week and we thought that was an isolated incident. Clearly it's not, and it's a campaign thing that's going on," Wander said.

Authorities said the vandals spray-painted an H over an F to change the message from "Fire Obama" to "Hire Obama." The vandals also wrote "Elect Obama" on the glass.

"Our message is very effective, and clearly it's pressing buttons. Unfortunately, some people don't know how to act in a democratic society," Wander said.

According to Wander, he's in favor of defeating Obama because he said his policies are bad for Israel.

Investigators said the surveillance cameras will continue rolling until the election, and police will look to prosecute anyone who vandalizes the building.

Police said they haven't been able to identify any suspects in Wednesday night's incident.
