South Carolina Representative Nancy Mace spoke out on the Sean Hannity Show Tuesday after her home was graffitied on Memorial Day, saying that it was part of a pattern of violence against conservatives.
She also pushed back against accusations that she staged the incident.
The vandals wrote in black spray paint messages such as ‘f*** you Nancy’ and ‘all politicians are b*****ds’ as well as several Antifa ‘A’ symbols on the walkways around her home indicating that the culprits were members of the decentralized far-left, anti-fascist movement.
‘This was my home, and it was quite frankly scary,’ she said. ‘ … I’m a single mom and I have two kids and I’m sad for my kids because they had to see this, and I’m sad for my neighbors. They didn’t ask for this to happen, but this is the left coming after the right, coming after us conservatives.’
The graffiti had messages such as ‘all politicans are b*****’ and ‘f*** you Nancy’ and appeared to bare the markings of ANTIFA
South Carolina Rep. Nancy Mace spoke out on the Sean Hannity Show Tuesday after vandals graffitied her home on Memorial Day saying that it was part of a pattern of violence against conservatives by the left
Mace said what happened to her home was an example of the kind of violence being perpetrated by the left against conservatives in the country such as the 2017 shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise at a baseball game, and when Sen. Rand Paul’s neighbor assaulted him, also in 2017.
‘We’re seeing the left, burn, loot and destroy our cities and our property,’ she said, adding that she had been the victim of vandalism before in October 2020 when someone keyed the word ‘f***’ on her car.
Additionally Mace disputed ‘conspiracy theories’ made online by what she said was a staffer for former President Barack Obama.
It was a possible reference to accusations made by political writer Bess Kalb, that Mace had staged the vandalism.
Mace also appeared to push back against accusations that she staged the incident, possibly making references to political writer Bess Kalb, whom she referred to as a staffer for Barack Obama. While Kalb was never an Obama staffer, she did work with Hillary Clinton on a handful of occasions
On Twitter, Kalb appeared to draw comparisons between Mace’s handwriting and that of the vandals and suggested that it was suspicious that the graffiti appeared to avoid any painted portions of the house.
‘Not to crisis manage this for you, but you should release your clearly-visible doorbell camera video and explain this series of strange coincidences or you should probably resign,’ she wrote.
While Kalb was never a staffer for Obama, she had worked with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on a handful of occasions.
Another piece of spray paint demanded Mace ‘pass the pro act,’ which she voted against in March 2021

Mace shot back that she had immediately filed a report with the police and provided photographic and video evidence, and told Hannity that if people were skeptical they could visit her website.
‘If your viewers want to see that police report, they want to see the the photos the photographic evidence and videos that I took when this happened, then go online to my website,’ she said.
A press release on the site related to the incident features pictures she had previously posted on Twitter of the graffiti and a police report she appears to have filed.
It appeared the vandalism was related to Mace’s ‘nay’ vote in March this year on the ‘The Protecting the Right to Organize’, otherwise known as the PRO Act.
‘This is the 2nd time I’ve been targeted for vandalism in the last few months,’ she continued, adding that law enforcement is working to find the vandals.
‘There is a significant difference between nonviolent protests and criminal acts of intimidation and vandalism,’ Mace wrote.
‘I’m concerned too for my neighbors who’ve been impacted by this appalling criminal behavior.’
Mace said she was unbowed by the vandalism and would continue to fight for her convictions
Some other notes in the graffiti said ‘no gods, no masters’ and demanded Mace ‘pass the pro act.’
The PRO Act stands for ‘The Protecting the Right to Organize’, and is a proposed bill that would amend previous labor laws to help expand ‘various labor protections related to employees’ rights to organize and collectively bargain in the workplace’.
Mace took office as a representative for South Carolina’s 1st congressional district on January 3, 2021. In March 2021, the PRO bill was re-introduced and passed the Democrat-controlled House. Mace voted ‘nay’ on HR 842.
Mace said she was unbowed by vandalism
‘I want to say one thing if the folks that did this the person or persons that came onto my front doorstep that did this thinks that I’m going to be intimidated,’ she said. ‘Well, they thought wrong. I’m gonna work harder and stronger and fight more for my convictions, and my core values and my beliefs and protecting my kids and my country. They’re all worth saving.’
