Nasty pre-election spray painting hit a Jewish cemetery in Grand Rapids, where red letters on headstones spell out TRUMP and MAGA. The weekend vandals are unknown.

"We are appalled by the reported desecration of gravestones at the Ahavas Israel Cemetery," the Anti-Defamation League of Michigan posts on Facebook.

Though the spraying could be rooted mainly in anti-Semitism or a hateful prank by provocateurs, a group called the Michigan Democratic Jewish Caucus sees a political connection.

"This attack on our Jewish community in Grand Rapids speaks volumes about the choice confronting our country in tomorrow's election," says a statement from Cary Fleischer, the caucus' Grand Rapids regional chair, quoted by The Detroit News.
