One of Minnesota's congressional delegation is calling out the thieves who ransacked his campaign office, as well as those purportedly stealing his supporters' lawn signs.
Rep. Dean Phillips, a DFLer who represents Minnesota's 3rd Congressional District (which covers much of the west metro), announced the break-in via Twitter on Sunday morning:
According to the tweet, the apparent burglary happened at Phillips' Minnetonka office. He also says thieves have been stealing campaign signs from lawns across the district.
Addressing the thieves and the burglars directly, Phillips says "the irony isn't lost on me," and that their "disregard for law and stoking of fear and disorder, only increases my resolve."
A Phillips spokesperson told the Star Tribune that the campaign is working with law enforcement to bring the burglars to justice, but did not specify what was stolen or how much damage was left.
Phillips is up for reelection this year, running against Republican and fellow businessman Kendall Qualls.
