Its still early here.  This is breaking news at the coffee shops.  

I wonder if there are other stories like this that I have not heard about.  

Are there more to come?  

According to our local ABC affiliate:

DENVER -- Workers at the Colorado Democratic Party headquarters are cleaning up after vandals struck overnight.

Nearly every window of the office on Santa Fe Drive was smashed with rocks. Very early estimates on the amount of damage caused at the office was about $10,000.

Democratic Party Chairwoman Pat Waak said she received a call from police at 2:54 a.m. Waak said she believes the vandalism is connected to the heated debate over health care reform.

The local NBC affiliate offers some pics.  

Its a sad story.  The HQ occupies a nice corner building with lots of big glass windows.  

HuffPo did a slide show of Dem and Repug HQ's last summer.  The one that was attacked is the 8th slide.  

UPDATE: More pics at the Colorado Dems Facebook Page

UPDATE: There is a pic of what was found at the site, thanks to redstateblues at Colorado Pols It seems to help to identify the perpetrators, don't ya think?  

UPDATE: altered NBC affiliate link.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
