SEATTLE (Diya TV) – Authorities say Indian American Seattle city councilmember Kshama Sawant is being targeted by a poop bandit, who’s been throwing human feces at her house.

The Plain Dealer published a cartoon showing Vance and his Democratic opponent Tim Ryan. The air bubble above Vance says “Only Indians name change I support is my wife’s to ‘Senator J.D. Vance’s Spouse.”  Some are accusing the paper of racism.
