HAMPTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (1010 WINS) -- New Jersey police are investigating after a house and some signs were vandalized with swastikas in Sussex County, according to a New York Times report.

The anti-Semitic slurs and profanity were sprayed on a sign for Congressman Josh Gottheimer and on the home one of his supporters in New Jersey early Saturday morning.

The homeowner in Hampton Township had displayed the sign to show support for the congressman, as Gottheimer, who is Jewish, is currently running for re-election.

The sign was defaced with anti-Semitic and racist remarks written in black spray paint. One of the signs had “Vote MAGA” written on it.

Additionally, the home was vandalized with a large swastika painted on the garage door. A street signs and “for sale” sign on an adjacent property were also marked.

This was the second time that the Gottheimer sign was defaced. When the sign was first put up, someone had kicked it down.
