The Chicago offices of Mike Bloomberg’s 2020 presidential campaign were covered with ‘Oligarch’ graffiti early Monday morning, with top staffers suggesting Bernie Sanders supporters were behind the attack.
“Another one of Mike Bloomberg’s campaign offices was vandalized on Sunday night, with the former New York City mayor’s campaign quickly heaping blame for the graffiti on the rhetoric of Democratic presidential primary rival Bernie Sanders,” reports Fox News.

“While we do not know who is directly responsible, we do know Senator Bernie Sanders and his campaign have repeatedly invoked this language, and the word ‘oligarch’ specifically when discussing Mike Bloomberg and his campaign,” campaign manager Kevin Sheekey said.
“Sen. Sanders’ refusal to denounce these illegal acts is a sign of his inability to lead, and his willingness to condone and promote Trump-like rhetoric has no place in our politics … No one should have to live in fear of coming to work, and Sen. Sanders must call on his supporters — including his campaign staff — to elevate the discourse in this campaign and end their spread of hateful rhetoric,” he added.
Bloomberg’s offices in Tennessee were targeted last week for a similar attack.
