The Hill reports:
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s presidential campaign called out Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) presidential campaign after its Knoxville, Tenn., office was vandalized, saying the incident was reminiscent of language used by Sanders and his supporters.
“This latest incident at our Knoxville campaign office is exactly what we’ve been warning about. We don’t know who is responsible for this vandalism, but we do know it echoes language from the Sanders campaign and its supporters,” Bloomberg campaign manager Kevin Sheekey said in a statement.
“We call on Bernie Sanders to immediately condemn these attacks and for his campaign to end the Trump-like rhetoric that is clearly encouraging his supporters to engage in behavior that has no place in our politics,” he said.
A statement from Bloomberg campaign manager Kevin Sheekey on vandalism at the campaign’s Knoxville office points to the Sanders campaign: “The language used in these attacks mirrors language from Sen. Sanders and his campaign staff.”
