A former Democrat congressional candidate claimed on Twitter to have participated in the toppling of two statues in Portland, Oregon, Sunday night. The former candidate tweeted, “We brought down 2 statues.” During Sunday’s “Day of Rage” event, “peaceful protesters” vandalized buildings and tore down statues of former Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.
“It was so *dern* wet tonight,” Amanda Siebe tweeted shortly after midnight Monday morning. “But still, we brought down 2 statues. It was an amazing thing to see those statues fall! Not a damn copper in sight!”
