Police investigating break-in at ACC Democratic HQ

By Joe Johnson

The Athens-Clarke County Democratic Party headquarters were burglarized over the weekend in what one party official called a politically-motivated break-in.

According to the party, the burglary occurred during the evening hours on Saturday.

"The intruders went on to trash the office, turning over tables and chairs, emptying boxes, and throwing materials & supplies around,"the local Dems said in released statement Monday morning "Organizers discovered the situation when they arrived to meet canvassing volunteers on Sunday morning. Everyone is safe and the situation has been cleaned up for the most part."

The Athens-Clarke County Police Department was notified about the incident and is investigating. One laptop is missing, but it does not seem that theft was the motivation at this time, according to ACC Democratic Party Chair Tim Denson.

We won’t let the Right’s attempts at voter disenfranchisement stop us and we won’t let this kind of intimidation stop us either,” Denson said. "We need all of the Democrats in Athens to fight back against this by knocking on doors, volunteering, and voting so that Senator Warnock wins this runoff.

The Athens Democratic Party headquarters located at 855 Sunset Drive, Unit 3 will remain open Monday-Friday from 10:30am-6pm, Saturday from 8:30am-7pm, and Sunday from 11:30am-6pm.

If a politically motivated Republican had done this, I think the ridiculous signage would have been torn off the wall.

I know there are cameras everywhere in Athens. Should not be very hard to find the person's responsible for this. Where are the pictures of the suspects???
