There are nasty politics on display in Hartford as a Vermont school building was caught in the cross hairs.

It was an act of vandalism raising the specter of racism in this polarizing presidential campaign.

Hartford police say sometime over Monday night the vandals spray-painted the side of Dothan Brook Elementary School with the words, "Ameri-KKK-ans for Trump" and in place of the "C" in Americans they wrote “KKK,“ an apparent reference to the white supremacist group.

Police are not sure who's responsible or the motive.

"Defacing or damage of anyone's property for any reason is unacceptable and it is against the law. We are appealing to the public to assist us in finding those who are responsible and holding them accountable," said Chief Phillip Kasten, Hartford Police Department.

Police say back in August, just 3 miles away, the Cumberland Farms construction site was also vandalized. More than $10,000 in damage was done there and police believe the two incidents could be related.
