COOS BAY — The Coos County Democratic Party headquarters was vandalized Tuesday night, police and party officials say.

Party staff was in the downtown building around 9:15 p.m. when an individual taped a sign on the door and poured a putrid-smelling liquid on the ground and vent at the front of the office, according to party chair Mo Aakre. The smell came through a vent into the building and made a staff member sick, she said.
