Shots Fired At Aldermanic Candidate’s Office

CHICAGO (CBS) — A frightening act of vandalism shattered an aldermanic candidate’s campaign office in the final days before the Tuesday election.

No one was injured Thursday night when two bullets were fired into the office of 45th Ward aldermanic candidate Marina Faz-Huppert, in the 5300 block of North Milwaukee Avenue. But campaign staffers were inside working late at the time.

Faz-Huppert is one of several candidates running to replace the retiring Ald. Patrick Levar. She works as legislative and political director for the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union.

As of Friday morning, there were no suspects in the case.

    How do you know if it wasn’t done by her supporters to bring attention to her faltering campaign?Just a few days before election day!Sounds suspicious and desperate to me!I don’t think this temporary resident of the ward is that big of a threat!Except for those loyal to Levar.

  • Fed up

    This ploy is getting old. A candidate who is unknown or behind has vandalism to their office. This is as predictable as the holiday burglary at the afro church at Christmas time. Wake up and smell the coffee.

  • Concerned For the 45th

    Pretty suspicious because this also happened to Preckwinkle’s campaign office. Just so happens that Preckwinkle and Marina have the SAME campaign manager. At least it wasn’t a brick. That would have been too obvious.

    Two words: Publicty stunt.
