Frisian PVV candidate Erna Cohen awoke Saturday morning to find her house, car, garden wall and the street defaced with bold, red and green graffiti accusing her of being anti-Islam, the Telegraaf reported. The house in Paesens was tagged with “PVV fascists,” while the street in front of her home says “Here resides Muslim haters” with an arrow pointing to the house.

The homes of two other PVV candidates in Friesland were similarly defaced, it is alleged. Anti-Islamist party leader Geert Wilders took to Twitter to show his anger at the situation.

“Outrageous action against Friesland PVV candidates,” he wrote. “Frontal assault on democracy.”

“Police are investigating three graffiti tagging [cases] of homes / cars” in Hillard, Ternaard and Paesens, area police officers said on Twitter. “The police are conducting neighbourhood investigations in the three locations.”
