Va. Congressional Candidate's Car Vandalized

October 25, 2010

Democratic congressional candidate Rick Waugh says his car was vandalizedwith political graffiti while sitting about a block from his home near Louisa.

The Star-Exponent of Culpeper reported Friday that someone glued an Eric Cantor campaign sign to Waugh's Ford Thunderbird, damaged parts of the car and wrote expletives on it Wednesday night.

Waugh is running against Republican leader Cantor and independent Floyd Bayne in the 7th District, which runs from Richmond to Page County.

Both of Waugh's opponents have condemned the attack.

Waugh's political director, Jonathan Stevens, said the candidate's opponents are free to speak out, but "we're not going to get anywhere in our political discourse by trashing people's cars."
