“The windows were spray painted, our lock was glued and there was a 10ft banner (Seminole County GOP) with the words NAZIS & FREE PALESTINE scrawled on it,” the party wrote on Facebook.

The lock on the front door was also damaged.

Party officials said they would not tolerate being “terrorized, destroyed, or ostracized for praying, how we look, who we love, or how we vote.”

Longwood Police said they were investigating the incident, but no further details were released.

The vandalism comes weeks after the Casselberry office of the Seminole County Republican Party was attacked. Investigators also found vulgar messages and stickers on the locks in this case.
