Billionaire Mike Bloomberg’s campaign office in Knoxville, Tennessee was covered with graffiti overnight Thursday, with insiders suggesting the act of vandalism could come from supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders.
“This latest incident at our Knoxville campaign office is exactly what we’ve been warning about. We don’t know who is responsible for this vandalism, but we do know it echoes the language from the Sanders campaign and its supporters,” said a statement from Campaign Manager Kevin Sheekey.

“We call on Bernie Sanders to immediately condemn these attacks and for his campaign to end the Trump-like rhetoric that is clearly encouraging his behaviors to engage in behavior that has no place in our politics,” he added.
