Window Broken At Councilwoman’s Headquarters On North Side
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — An investigation is underway after a window at the campaign headquarters of the president of Pittsburgh City Council was broken overnight.
The building is located on East Ohio Street on Pittsburgh’s North Side.
Officials say the front window on the campaign office of Councilwoman Darlene Harris was broken sometime before 4 a.m. Nothing was taken from the building.
“I don’t know; there’s been a lot happening,” said Harris of the incident. “I’ve been followed and have had things thrown at my car at night while I’m driving. I’ve had text messages. I’ve had phone calls, hang-up phone calls.”
Vince Pallus, who is running against Harris, says he’s had similar problems.
“We’ve had a few signs disappear that we placed on private property,” he said. “We only place our signs on private property where people give us permission and we had a particular sign [get] defaced where someone wrote a vulgarity across it.”
A police report has been filed about the vandalism to Harris’ campaign office.
The election is coming up this Tuesday, May 17.
