SEPTEMBER 10, 2018
LARAMIE, WY - The Wyoming Republican Party condemns the forced entry and vandalism that took place last week at the Albany County Republican Party office. We applaud the Federal Bureau of Investigation for getting involved in the investigation of this erroneous crime.
Furthermore, after learning the space above the office is an occupied residence, the felony arson must be deemed as an incredibly dangerous and potentially lethal act. The crime scene also shows strong evidence of being politically motivated. Patriotic items such as our United States flag and other symbols of freedom near and dear to our Republic were damaged or destroyed. The forceful and malicious damage sustained to this private property is extensive and intentional. The Wyoming Republican Party seeks full prosecution of the individual or individuals responsible for this attack and views this act as one of desperation by extremists illegally expressing their opposition. We believe our values represent the people of Wyoming and will be undaunted in continuing to help Republicans win elections.
