Nancy Pelosi's Home Graffitied Over '$2K' Stimulus Checks, Pig's Head Left

A home in San Francisco belonging to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was vandalized on New Year's Day with graffiti apparently referencing the effort to give $2,000 stimulus checks to Americans.

Graffiti on the garage door read "$2K", "Cancel rent" and "We want everything," according to ABC 6. The perpetrators had also written "UBI", which may be a reference to "Universal Basic Income."

A pig's head was left outside the garage door sitting in red paint and local police were informed at around 2am. Pelosi, the leading Democrat in Congress, appears not to have been home at the time.

No individual or group has yet claimed responsibility for the vandalism and it is not clear who might be behind it.

The garage door was covered with black garbage bags by Friday afternoon and San Francisco police had not released information about the suspects at the time of writing.

"I don't think that this is a useful way to go about it and it's a terrible start to this new year, when we are hoping for less anger and hatred than we've had to deal with for the last year," one of Pelosi's neighbors, Audrey Carlson, told San Francisco's KPIX on Friday.

Pelosi has led the effort to increase stimulus checks from $600 to $2,000 but the measure has hit a roadblock in the Senate as many Republicans oppose it.

Americans received $1,200 checks as part of the first stimulus package toward the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic but the Senate is divided on issuing $2,000 checks now.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has said there is "no realistic path" to getting $2000 checks approved despite pressure from Democrats and President Donald Trump. McConnell pointed to the recent $900 billion package.

"We just approved almost a trillion dollars in aid a few days ago," he said on Wednesday. "It struck a balance between broad support for all kinds of households and a lot more targeted relief for those who need help most."

Independent Senator Bernie Sanders and Republican Senator Josh Hawley have both been strong advocates of $2,000 checks, while Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has disagreed with McConnell, saying the measure is necessary,

"With all due respect to my Republican colleagues, a $2k direct payment for individuals and families who are struggling is not socialism," Graham tweeted. "In my view it is necessary in the times in which we live."

Nancy Pelosi's office has been contacted for comment on this article.
