Costa Encounters the Pitiful Enemy
It appears that vocal Tea Party figure and District 31 candidate for the General Assembly’s House Doreen Costa has attracted the attention of some mentally deficient (probably unstable) supporter of the status quo:

“They just destroyed all my political stuff,” Costa told Political Scene, adding that the following week someone smashed eggs on her car. “The trooper said it was someone making a statement because nothing was stolen.”
Pictures on Doreen’s Facebook page reveal the attack to be minimally disruptive, consisting mainly of spilled campaign materials:
