The campaign manager for a Democratic Congressional candidate returned to his Russellville, Arkansas home, to find that the family cat had been killed. The word "liberal" had been scribbled across the cat's body in paint.


Associated Press reports that a complaint has been filed with the Russellville Police Department, and officials have no suspects at this time.

The Russellville Police Department is investigating, and a report will be made to the Federal Bureau of Investigation Monday morning.
