The Democrat headquarters building for both Maricopa County and Arizona branches of the party was firebombed early Friday morning. No injuries were reported. Even though virtually “everything” was destroyed, they won’t be discouraged.
Democrat Headquarters destroyed
Liberals encourage anarchy until it comes at them, then they dial 911. It’s a good thing the Phoenix Police Department hasn’t been defunded. “Our computers, our phones, our tablets, our printers, everything to get out the vote was destroyed in the fire last night,” Steven Slugocki, the chairman of the county’s Democrat Party, relates. The fire is “suspected to be arson.”
When firefighters arrived on scene, around 1 a.m., “heavy smoke and fire were billowing from” the Democrat HQ. First responders “quickly entered the building to search for persons and began a fire attack to put out the flames,” fire officials report. “No one was inside the building at the time.”
After scouring through surveillance video from nearby buildings and combing the wreckage of the Democrat offices, they’re convinced the fire was human caused. The firebombing is being probed by the Phoenix Fire Investigation Task Force, along with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Police have a clue it was arson but won’t say what
Phoenix police spokeswoman Sgt. Mercedes Fortune explains the incident at Democrat headquarters is being investigated as an arson “based on evidence discovered at the scene.” She declined to reveal what evidence convinced investigators the blaze was set intentionally, saying “she didn’t want to tip off the perpetrator.” The head of the Maricopa Democratic Party, didn’t mind though
Democrat leader Slugocki spilled the beans to reveal that someone threw a bomb through the window. “A person got out of their car, threw a projectile at the building, and drove away. Minutes later, the fire swept through the building.” He’s a little upset that “our computers, our phones, our tablets, our printers, everything to get out the vote was destroyed in the fire last night.”
The state level Democrat party chair, Felecia Rotellini, “learned of the fire early at 2 a.m. after the security system went off and staffers made her aware.” She’s happy that nobody was injured. “The fire is devastating, but we refuse to let this be a distraction.”
The state’s Republican Party Chairwoman Kelli Ward issued a statement condemning the violence and praising the Phoenix Police and Fire departments “in ascertaining the cause of this act of cowardice.” They may be the Democrat party but political “violence against any party, group or individual should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law,” she insists. “Arizona Republicans look forward to meeting the Democrats on Election Day as opponents on the field of ideas,” she assures. “Arizona’s political leaders should take this opportunity to remind Arizonans of all backgrounds that while we may have differences on political issues and policy, ultimately we are all Americans and must treat each other as such.”
