Dems poster vandalized

A swastika was drawn on a Yale College Democrats poster taped to the Connecticut Hall computer lab door advertising a Bulldog Days event with Howard Dean ’71 last week.

Although only one poster was found vandalized, the Yale Police Department investigated the incident and notified the College Democrats.

The Dems ultimately decided that the police’s offer for assistance and security at the event would be unnecessary, Dems President Marina Keegan ’12 said.

“It’s a strange attack and there’s no reason to believe it [was targeting the Dems],” Keegan said. “It was just a Howard Dean poster for politics, so it seems like a strange target.”

The Yale Police Department looked into the incident and could not discover any further information, Officer Lester Blazejowski said.
