Rep. Debbie Dingell says her office was broken into, vandalized

Vandals broke into Rep. Debbie Dingell’s Michigan office, and trashed some items belonging to her deceased husband, the congresswoman said on Monday.

Dingell was a Democrat and made national headlines after he fought Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene in a shouting match on September steps.

According to the newspaper’s report, John Dingell, her husband, had previously used the office. He was her predecessor in Congress.

“I’m deeply concerned about the break-in & vandalization of my Dearborn office today,” she said on Twitter. “Our door & windows were smashed & memorability – especially John’s items – was broken.”

No one was hurt but she said “we must also recognize the impact attacks like this one & constant threats have had on my staff & all Congressional staff.

“The motive for today’s incident is unclear, but what I can tell you is that the disrespect, violence & division need to end in this country,” she said. “We need to practice civility and kindness, not divisiveness and anger.

She went on to say her office has been receiving threats “for months” and they are being taken seriously.

Rep. Debbie Dingell said items belonging to her late husband, Rep. John Dingell, were damaged.
Rep. Debbie Dingell stated that the items of her late husband John Dingell were lost.

“This vandalization really hits home,” she said. “Regardless of if your views differ from mine or from your neighbor’s, we need to learn to hear each other out & work together to solve the issues facing our nation.”

Dearborn and the US Capitol Police will work together to identify who’s responsible, she said.

After the House of Representatives had passed a bill to codify Roe v. Wade, Dingell and other Democrats clashed in September. Greene heckled the Democratic lawmakers during a press conference on the bill, with an angry Dingell yelling back “you try being a Christian and try treating your colleagues decently!”
