The chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party (NCGOP) has pointed words after the party headquarters was hit by vandals two days after a nationwide election.

According to Executive Director Dallas Woodhouse, the NCGOP hung two signs outside its headquarters Wednesday night. 

One congratulated President-elect Donald Trump and the other thanked volunteers who helped the Republican Party during the campaign.

"I am sick and damn tired of the 'tolerant left' burning our building and destroying our stuff," Woodhouse tweeted Thursday morning with a photo of the destroyed signs.

The chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party, Robin Hayes, released a statement Thursday morning.

"How ironic it is that after all the allegations about our side not accepting the election results, it's the left taking to the streets, and causing property damage," Hayes said. "While we don't know who is responsible for numerous attacks on many of our offices, we sure could use some help from democrats in getting their people to behave."

Hayes and Woodhouse were referencing three different instances of vandalism on local Republican Party headquarters in North Carolina in the last month.

The most recent was last week when the NCGOP said the headquarters in Alamance County was vandalized by someone with spray-paint.

The phrase "[Expletive] Trump" was painted on the bricks outside of the headquarters along the 2600-block of Ramada Road in Burlington, along with spray-paint on a sign and the door outside the office.

Burlington Police are investigating that incident. They say, if caught, that person would face injury to real property charges.

Firebombing in Orange County

According to police, someone threw a bottle of flammable liquid through the window of Orange County’s GOP headquarters in mid-October.

The "firebombing" caused campaign signs, supplies and furniture to catch fire before burning itself out. A swastika and “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else” were spray painted on the side of an adjacent building.

At the time, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory called the incident "anarchy" and called it an attack on democracy.

After the attack on the GOP headquarters in Orange County, an online campaign - reportedly set up by a group of Democrats to help rebuild the firebombed Republican party headquarters - met and surpassed its $10,000 goal only 40 minutes.

The campaign is not an official effort of the Democratic Party, but rather the work of a group of supportive Democrats. The group said they hoped to make a statement against such tactics.

Other attacks

Last month, the NCGOP said shots were fired at the county headquarters in Bayboro, which is in Pamlico County.

"We have had two separate incidents at our Headquarters over the last three weeks that involved a person or persons shooting an air rifle or BB gun at the front windows," Pamlico County Republican Party chairman Dave Wickersham said in October. "No volunteers were in the building at the time of the shootings and no one has been injured."

He said both incidents were reported to the Pamlico County Sheriff’s Office.

And just hours after the firebombing in Orange County NCGOP Executive Director Dallas Woodhouse said his email was compromised.

An email was sent in mid-October and appeared to be a document entitled "GOP-financial_Document.pdf" that was located in what appeared to be a Drop Box account.

Woodhouse later said the link was part of a phishing email sent to all of his contacts with a "link to a counterfeit site pretending to be dropbox. I did not send those emails."

He then warned anyone who entered a password to change their passwords immediately and "never use that password again, for anything, ever."

Woodhouse said his account has since been secured and apologized for the inconvenience.
