Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's Highlands area home was vandalized early Saturday morning.

Numerous messages were written on the home using red and white spray paint. The phrase "Where's my money" was tagged on the front door along with other messages on the porch. The message seems to be a response to the proposed $2,000 stimulus check increase that was blocked by Sen. McConnell in December.

The rest of McConnell's home was not damaged.

Louisville Metro Police Department say the incident happened around 5 a.m.

There are currently no suspects. The investigation is ongoing.

The Kentucky GOP released this statement condemning the vandalism:

“Vandalism is reprehensible and there’s no place in our politics for acts like this. Kentuckians deserve better and the Democrats should join us in condemning this act of vandalism.”

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
