Jim Ramstad offers $1,000 bounty for vandals that tagged his home

Jim Ramstad's Minnetonka home was vandalized last night as part of a larger "garage tagging" attack on homes of prominant politicians in Minnesota. Pictured left is Ramstad's garage appearing in a Fox 9 news report on this incident. Jim said in a statement for KARE 11 that, "There's obviously no place for this in politics, no place for this in Minnesota, no place for this in our country." Ramstad is reportedly putting up $1,000 reward of his own money to catch the vandals that did this.

According to an article by the Star Tribune, Sen Amy Klobuchar, Sen Norm Coleman, and U.S. Reps. Keith Ellison, John Kline, Michele Bachmann were also victims of the garage tagging vandalism.
More info from the Strib: 'Ramstad discovered the vandalism early this morning and notified Minnetonka police, said Ramstad spokesman Lance Olson.
Olson said the word "SCUM" was spray painted above Ramstad's garage door and "U R A sellout!!! Psalm 2" was painted across the door. Ramstad found the incident disturbing, he said.'
