Truckload of manure dumped at Ohio Democratic Party office

A truckload of manure was dumped in front of the Warren County, Ohio, offices of the Democratic Party on Saturday. The poopy protest — perhaps inspired by a similar stunt at the French parliament in 2014 — was caught on security camera in the middle of the night, but the perpetrator has yet to be identified.

The chairman of the Warren County Republican Party said his organization had nothing to do with the manure dump and offered to help clean up the mess.

This comes less than a month after a county-level GOP office in North Carolina was firebombed. There, as in Ohio, the opposing party promptly pitched in for clean-up.
