House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's home was vandalized with leftist messages demanding universal basic income and the cancelation of rent.
The home, reportedly owned by Pelosi, was splattered with fake blood and a severed pig's head was placed on the driveway. The white garage door was spray-painted with graffiti that read: "Cancel Rent!," "UBI!," and "We Want Everything!" There was a message of "$2K" with a line through the middle, a reference to lawmakers' failed attempts to increase the COVID-19 stimulus checks from $600 to $2,000. There was also the letter "A" inside a circle, which is the symbol of anarchists.

The San Francisco Police Department responded to the reported vandalism around 2 a.m. on New Year's Day, according to Fox News. "Unidentified suspect(s) had painted graffiti on the garage door and left a pig's head on the sidewalk," the SFPD said.
By Friday afternoon, the black garbage bags were covering up the graffiti on the garage door.

The home, which is estimated to have a value of $5.5 million, is situated in the city's affluent Pacific Heights neighborhood.
It is not known if Pelosi was at home at the time of the defacement. Pelosi's office has yet to issue a statement.
"There are a lot of unresolved issues and I don't think this is a useful way to go about it and a terrible start to this New Year," Audrey Carlson, who has lived in the area for 38 years, told KGO-TV.
Fred Kennerley, who works for a private security company that is hired to protect several residents in the wealthy neighborhood said, "She has her own security. She has capitol police they fly all the way out here from Washington, D.C., with her."
Kennerley noted that this isn't the first time that Pelosi's home has been vandalized. "Last time they hung the hair dryers and stuff on the trees," he said.
The San Francisco Police Department has opened an investigation and is asking the public's help in finding the vandals.
"The SFPD Special Investigations Division is investigating. Anyone with information is asked to call the SFPD Tip Line at 1-415-575-4444 or Text a TIP to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD. You may remain anonymous," the police agency said.
