The Blue Arkansas blog reports that Jake Burris, campaign manager for 3rd District Democratic ccongressional candidate Ken Aden, returned to his Russellville home to find the family cat killed and painted with the word “liberal.”

UPDATE: The killing has been reported to authorities. The Aden campaign has issued a statement in which he takes pain to say he does not believe the campaign of his opponent, Republican U.S. Rep. Steve Womack, had anything to do with it.
