The House majority leader became the latest victim of violent attacks Monday — this time a rock being thrown into his home office.
Rep. Kevin McCarthy, California Republican, had his office in Bakersfield hit by two vandals, according to his official Instagram account.
“Does anyone know these two guys? They threw a boulder thru our office window and took office equipment,” Mr. McCarthy wrote.
