After Knoxville campaign office vandalism and similar attacks, @Mike Bloomberg campaign calls for @Bernie Sanders campaign "to end the Trump-like rhetoric that is clearly encouraging his supporters to engage in behavior that has no place in our politics." pic.twitter.com/fmSi1iosIG

It’s not Trump supporters acting badly, Mike, it’s leftists to blame for their own actions.
Mike Bloomberg’s campaign suggested rhetoric from rival Bernie Sanders’ camp motivated the vandalization of several of their field offices that included multiple attacks referring to his deep pockets.
“We don’t know who is responsible for this vandalism, but we do know it echoes language from the Sanders campaign and its supporters,” Bloomberg campaign manager, Kevin Sheekey, said in a press release on Friday.
The campaign said a Bloomberg field office in Knoxville, Tennessee, was vandalized Thursday night with orange spray paint that appears to say “resist” and “f— Bloomberg,” according to a photo they released.
