When Kentuckians make international news, it’s not always our best look. Here’s today’s global item.
Someone spray painted graffiti on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s front door at his Louisville home. Congress has been debating another “free money” stimulus package ranging between $600 and $2,000 per person. McConnell has resisted the higher payments.

The day before Sen. McConnell’s house was tagged, a San Francisco home belonging to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was vandalized. The California tagger appeared to spell everything correctly and use proper punctuation.

Oh Kentucky, why y’all gotta perpetuate dat stereotype?
Another part of McConnell’s home was tagged with the correctly spelled message “Mitch kills the poor.” No corroborating evidence has been submitted by the late night porch artist.
