HARTSVILLE, S.C. — Democrats seeking to work Tuesday morning at the Darlington County party headquarters arrived to the office on West Home Avenue to find the doors were superglued shut.
The matter is being investigated by the Hartsville Police Department.
The office is also the law offices of Holly Saleeby Atkins, daughter of former S.C. Sen. Ed Saleeby.
"Sadly someone has vandalized the office at 311 West Home Avenue in Hartsville," Atkins said in an emailed statement. "I opened the Hartsville office of the Atkins Law Firm in late 2019 seeking to continue my father’s legacy of serving the residents of Darlington County and surrounding areas.
“As many of you know, my father was Senator Ed Saleeby. He ran his law practice out of this building for many years. I am disappointed this has happened and will be working with the authorities to determine who is responsible."
Atkins added that thanks to a local locksmith, the party members and her office team were able to access the building.
