The home of Friesland PVV candidate Jeffrey Graansma was vandalized. Texts accusing the populist party of fascism were spray-painted on the wall of his home in the Friesland village of Boelenslaan, according to a photo PVV leader Geert Wilders shared on Twitter. "Disgusting and unacceptable", the PVV leader said. 

The 19-year-old Graansma is a candidate in Friesland for the provincial states elections on March 20th, according to newspaper AD. 

The incident was reported to the police, Max Aardema, PVV leader for the provincial elections in Friesland, said to the newspaper. "Very annoying that this happens", Aardema said. "These kinds of incidents have occurred several times in Friesland in recent years. Last year, slogans were painted on a sports complex in the village where Graansma lives."
