In what may be the work of angry supporters of defeated Democrat Congressman, Tom Perriello, a Robert Hurt U.S. Congress campaign sign was defaced over the weekend. “KILL” was spray-painted in large black letters over Hurt’s printed name.
The vandalism took place at Auburn Hill Farm in Albemarle County sometime between Friday evening and Sunday morning. Steve Peters, the farm’s owner, has reported the incident to the FBI as a possible safety threat to Representative-elect, Robert Hurt.
Republican Hurt defeated incumbent Perriello in the November 2, 2010 general election and will represent Virginia’s Fifth District in the 112th Congress.
