LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Republican Party's headquarters was vandalized late Monday night for the second time in three days, police said.

The Lansing Police Department received a call about fresh graffiti painted at 520 Seymour Ave. on Tuesday, Public Information Officer Robert Merritt said.

According to a post from party officials, there were three graffiti tags:

The call came just days after the GOP reported another vandalism.

Party officials discovered that graffiti, which said "(Expletive) ICE," Saturday evening and reported it to law enforcement.

In a statement, the Republican Party said "the ideal of free speech was again attacked by those who wish to silence American voices through intimidation."

"Like children who don't get their way, these criminals seek to bully those they disagree with, rather than engage in a civil discussion," Cox said in the statement. "These radical thugs choose to intimidate through graffiti and anonymous nighttime attacks, rather than contest their ideas in the press, in the public square and in the polling places."

An LPD detective is investigating both reports, and police have not yet made any arrests related to the vandalism, Merritt said.
