This one hit the headlines the other day:

"Gay Republican congressional candidate's California office vandalized

LOS ANGELES — The San Diego office of California congressional candidate Carl DeMaio, one of three openly gay Republicans vying for Congress in 2014, were vandalized this week, just days before the primary election, his campaign said.

Staffers arrived at the campaign office on Wednesday morning to find cables and phone lines cut, water poured into computers and a printer and monitor smashed, according to a statement released by the campaign.

Police were called, but no suspects had been identified in the vandalism and no motive established, campaign spokesman Dave McCulloch said.

"We're not going to speculate on who or what or why, we've got a campaign to run and Tuesday is a big day for us," McCulloch said.

"We're more concerned with getting Carl's positive message reform out there," he said. "While our phones were down and Internet was down, instead of having our volunteers make phone calls we sent them out to walk the streets of Poway."

DeMaio tweeted a photo of smiling staffers working the phones in the office on Wednesday evening, along with the message: "This morning, our campaign office was highly vandalized. But we're back - and won't miss a beat."

A San Diego Police Department spokesman could not immediately be reached for comment on the investigation

DeMaio, a businessman, is seeking the Republican nomination to run against incumbent Democrat Scott Peters in November's general election."

I posted a blog on Mr. DeMaio last month which included an article by Dana Perino on the Dem hypocrisy directed at DeMaio and his campaign. See:

This latest news that DeMaio's office was vandalized in the extreme is but further evidence that there is little tolerance for gay Republicans in blue states. It will be interesting to see if they ever identify the perpetrators.

...and speaking of blue states, the latest Gallup poll indicates that "people want OUT!" From Downtrend.com:

"People vote with their feet and a recent Gallup poll suggests that vote is against Democrats.

The poll measured the percentage of people who would move elsewhere if given the chance. The top 10 were:

1.Illinois
2.Connecticut
3.Maryland
4.Nevada
5.Rhode Island
6.New Jersey
7.New York
8.Massachusetts
9.Louisiana
10.Mississippi

Notice a pattern? Seven of the top eight states people want to relocate from are blue. Nevada is a purple state, as it has voted twice for the Democrat and twice for the Republican in the last four presidential elections.

About half of Illinois, Connecticut and Maryland residents want to jump ship. Work/business-related was the top reason cited in each case (tied with family/friends in Maryland). This suggests liberal economic policies aren’t working out for the masses in those states."
