CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) – Former Linn County GOP chairman Brett Mason went to check out his van around 6:30 p.m. Monday night. That’s when he found out someone spray painted a vulgar statement about Donald Trump across the back.

“When someone comes on my property, and takes a spray can, and paints vulgarities on my van intending for it to be permanent, and leaves a threat that basically they can come and do this whenever they want, that’s inappropriate. That is not expression, that’s not discourse or dialogue, that’s antagonism,” Mason said.

He believes he was targeted because of the Trump 2016 bumper stickers on the van. Mason said two other homes in the neighborhood were also vandalized. Mason was able to get most of the paint off immediately and has filed a police report.
