The Racine County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a reported act of vandalism targeting House Speaker Paul Ryan’s Republican challenger in the August primary.
A yellow dump truck used by Paul Nehlen’s campaign had a tire deflated and letters torn from the side of the vehicle before Monday’s Rochester Memorial Day parade.
According to Nehlen’s campaign, tape was used to cover a portion of the truck’s message, and trash was thrown in the truck bed. The vehicle, with the message “Dump Ryan” did not make it into the parade.
Nehlen blames Ryan supporters for the vandalism, which Ryan’s campaign condemned.
