Unraveling the mystery of who vandalized the Seminole County GOP office

First off,

I have friends who are Seminole County Republicans.
I have friends who are Seminole County Democrats.
I’m proud of this.
If you’ve got a problem with that, get lost. Unfollow me on Twitter. Go for a swim in Lake Apopka, I really don’t care.

On Monday, it was announced that the Seminole County GOP office in Casselberry was vandalized. RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel tweeted the photo you see on this post.

Naturally, the first question we ask is “who did it”? And I’ve got a theory I’ll share with you in a minute, but it’s important to know that Dem and GOP offices in Seminole County have coexisted within walking distance of each other for years. This is very uncharacteristic of the environment there. The Dems once had their office on Ronald Reagan boulevard in Longwood.

So let’s look at the suspects tied to the allegations floating around.

Many Republicans believe it was the Democrats. But that doesn’t make any sense. Here’s why

Republicans will see a small bounce from this, but Democrats know this as well.
The general public sentiment will be based on the fear that the community is going in the wrong direction because of this behavior. If that’s the case why would the Dems sabotage themselves like this?

Democrats believe it was a GOP inside job to counter program the Ben Paris controversy. But that doesn’t make sense either
: The Orlando media is not a cat chasing a laser pointer. They’re going to connect the stories. If anything, this vandalism aggravated the Paris controversy and made it much worse. The party may be trying to disown Paris but that’s too late. The stories are now tied together.

Who does that leave?

Party disowned extremist from either side: My pro organizers and operatives know these guys. These are the troublemakers who have never knocked on one voter door or attended one phone bank. They show up to events and immediately cause problems. They’re attention starved and just want to cause problems

They create the violent visuals that we see on TV from events and then they disappear doing more damage than anything.

Were they left or right leaning? I don’t know. And the parties might not be completely separated from this. Somebody knows something.

Especially since that GOP office is 20 yards from 436, with hundreds of cars flying by.

We will eventually find out. It may be in 5 days or 5 years, but this knowledge doesn’t stay hidden forever.
