Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) said she found her home vandalized on Memorial Day. According to Mace, her house, sidewalk, and porch steps were covered “with Antifa symbols and profanity.” She tweeted out pictures to document the vandalism.

Mace reiterated that she’s not against protests, but that “there is a significant difference between nonviolent protests and criminal acts of intimidation and vandalism.”

Meanwhile, her neighbors were reportedly very supportive. “So many have reached out to offer their assistance and support,” she wrote in a tweet. “I cannot thank the Charleston community enough.”

On Twitter, Mace took the opportunity to ask everyone to “take it down a notch.”

“We can and we should do better for our kids and for our country,” Mace tweeted.
