Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell’s homes vandalized

Vandals in the US have attacked the homes of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell.

Fake blood and a severed pig’s head were reportedly left outside Democrat Pelosi’s California house, which was also daubed with graffiti.

The words “where’s my money” and some expletives were scrawled on Republican McConnell’s house in Kentucky.

It comes amid a political battle over a coronavirus stimulus package.

Last week, the US House of Representatives voted to increase the aid sent to individuals under the scheme from 600 to 2,000 dollars. The Democrat-led chamber passed the bill with the help of more than 40 Republicans.

But the Republican-led Senate has not approved the bigger cheques, despite calls to do so from US President Donald Trump.

McConnell said, “The Senate is not going to be bullied into rushing out more borrowed money into the hands of Democrats’ rich friends who don’t need the help.”
