Chicago police today released images of three people who investigators are trying to identify in connection with the defacement of presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg’s campaign office in Edgewater on Monday.

Police said “derogatory words” were spray-painted on the office windows around 1:11 a.m. on the 1100 block of West Bryn Mawr.

Photos of the damage show the words “sexist,” “GOP,” “racist,” and “oligarch” were painted on the building.

Anyone with information about the suspects may contact Area North detectives at 312-744-8263 regarding case JD-162698.

Bloomberg’s office was the second North Side presidential political office to be defaced in less than a week.

Last Thursday, anti-black, anti-Hispanic, and anti-Semitic words were found written on the windows of a Lakeview East storefront that is being used by a political action committee in support of presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar.
