EDGEWATER — Chicago Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying three people believed to have tagged presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg’s Edgewater office with anti-Bloomberg slogans.

Just after 1 a.m. Monday, at least three people defaced the windows of Bloomberg’s campaign offices in Edgewater with “derogatory words,” according to police. Using red spray paint, the words “racist,” “sexist,” “GOP” and “oligarch” were written in the campaign office windows at 1130 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., according to the Sun-Times.

The anti-Bloomberg graffiti incident in Chicago is similar to at least six other incidents in cities where Bloomberg has campaign offices, the campaign has said.

Police on Tuesday released surveillance footage of three people alleged to have defaced the Bloomberg campaign office. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call area detectives at 312-744-8263.

Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City and current Democratic presidential hopeful, opened a field office in Edgewater in early February. One of the world’s richest men, Bloomberg has spent lavishly on his campaign, opening up six field offices in Illinois, including on in Chatham and a state campaign headquarters Downtown.
