Obama Campaign Office Shot up With BB Gun in Los Angeles; LAPD on Look Out For Culprit
Pete Souza for the White House

If you hate President Obama, please don't do stupid stuff like shoot up his local campaign office with a BB gun and throw an unknown object through the window.

That's a surefire way to get lots of cops looking for your dumb ass, which was the case last night after someone fired BBs at the president's L.A. campaign office in the 6700 block of South Centinela Avenue near Culver City. The unknown object thrown inside? Unknown.

LAPD spokeswoman Sara Faden told the Weekly ...

... the vandalism was reported about 7:25 p.m. Someone who heard glass shattering called the cops, and LAPD Pacific Division officers responded, she said.

News source Venice 311 tweeted the vandalism report and the Los Angeles Times' Andrew Blankstein broke the news last night.

Obama is headed to L.A. Monday on a fundraising mission for his reelection campaign.

Faden said it wasn't immediately clear if the U.S. Secret Service would be getting involved in the investigation. Whoever did this better hope not.

And, next time, just start your own blog. That's what all the haters do these days.
