Vandals strike Giffords’ Tucson office

A federal investigation has been launched after vandals destroyed a glass door and a window at the Tucson Congressional offices of Democratic U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

Giffords press secretary C.J. Karamargin in Tucson told The Associated Press March 22 the front door of the office was shattered along with a side glass panel.

U.S. Capitol Police were notified of the destruction and are investigating along with Tucson police.

No rocks or bricks were found and authorities are looking into whether a pellet gun may have been used.

Giffords’ district office in Sierra Vista was not vandalized and there were no claims of responsibility for the Tucson office vandalism.

The congresswoman joined Arizona’s other House Democrats in voting for health care reform March 21.
