Huntington Station, NY- Police in Suffolk County say Hate Crimes Unit Detectives are investigating after a swastika was painted on a Lee Zeldin for Governor campaign sign. Officials say the sign was found on the corner of West Pulaski Rd and Oakwood Road in Huntington Station and called in by a passing motorist on Sunday. Police also say the numbers “187” were painted on the sign.
On his Facebook page, Congressman Lee Zeldin wrote, “In the United States, we settle our scores at the ballot box, and this type of raw hate must never have any home on Long Island or anywhere else in our state and country. I am thankful for the Suffolk County Police Department as they work to identify the perpetrators. We will not let this vandalism deter us from our rescue mission to save our state.”
Lee Zeldin is running for Governor of New York State. Primary elections are on Tuesday, June 28, 2022.
