Mike Bloomberg’s presidential campaign has significantly taken a turn for the worse since Wednesday’s primary debate in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Prior to the aforementioned debate, some folks speculated that going toe-to-toe with other candidates might not be Bloomberg’s strong suit. These speculations were confirmed when the billionaire businessman failed to hold his own on the stage and took several hits from Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, and Bernie Sanders.

In the wake of his terrible delivery on the debate stage, new developments from The Daily Caller News Foundation confirm that a Tennessee-based Bloomberg office was vandalized on Thursday. The vandalism comes as the 2020 Democrat takes additional, post-debate hits from Warren and Sanders.
What to Know About the Bloomberg Office’s Vandalism
According to the Knoxville Police Department, Bloomberg’s office was vandalized at some point between Thursday at 6 PM and Friday morning at 7 AM. Thus far, an active investigation into the crime remains ongoing; however, due to the lack of security cameras at Bloomberg’s office, the process of finding the culprits is that much harder for law enforcement.
Thus far, the police don’t know who committed the vandalism; however, Bloomberg’s campaign manager is already pointing fingers.
Yesterday, Kevin Sheekey put out a statement in which he faulted Sanders’ campaign and supporters, despite later admitting that Bloomberg’s people “don’t know who’s responsible.” At this point, it’s also important to note that some of the words written on Bloomberg’s campaign office door read, “oligarch,” “f*ck Bloomberg,” “authoritarian,” and “classist.”
Sanders’ team has yet to respond to the blame assigned to them by Bloomberg’s campaign manager. According to Sheekey, the words on the door “echo” supposedly “Trump-like rhetoric” that the Sanders campaign has espoused.
Will Police Ever Find the Culprit(s)?
Only time will tell whether or not law enforcement manages to track down the people responsible for the vandalism of Bloomberg’s campaign office in Tennessee. Sanders supporters could be responsible, as could Warren backers; however, it’s all unknown at this point.
Another possibility is that Bloomberg’s team is responsible for the vandalization of their own office; attempts to garner sympathy after a tough week would serve as motive. It also wouldn’t be the first time someone faked a crime or employed underhanded tactics in order to improve their political standing.
Either way it goes, Bloomberg’s had quite a tough time since Wednesday night.
