Rep. David Scott (D-Ga.) was introduced on a Fox News appearance with the announcement that his office had been vandalized. A giant swastika was painted on the door.
"It is very unfortunate," Scott said. "I feel very bad about it."
Fox News said the incident has been reported to Capitol Hill police and that an investigation will be launched immediately.
At a turbulent town hall meeting last week, Rep. Scott accused disruptive attendees of being outsiders who "hijacked" the event. Asked about his response on air, Scott explained, "I was standing up for the people of Douglasville. They were disrespected."
