Republican lobbyist Matt Schlapp announced his young daughters and wife were “accosted” by a neighbor.

“My wonderful wife and my two youngest girls, 9 and 10, were accosted by one of our neighbors, a few doors away. When either side turns their politics into intimidation it is wrong. In this case it may well be a crime. Disagree w me all you want but leave my girls alone. I mean it,” Schlapp wrote on Twitter early Saturday evening.

“If this ‘neighbor’ apologizes in person to my wife and two young girls it would be accepted. No one should tell a 9 year old to f&@# off. No one. Especially over politics. If Democrats of stature act like this I really don’t want to hear about unity not one second more,” he added.

He added in another tweet that he won’t disclose who the neighbor is and wishes him “no harm.”

I won’t disclose who the person is. Strange thing I met him once and he seemed decent. Maybe he had a bad day. Maybe he has TDS. We wish him no harm and no one else should either. I just want my kids to feel safe and welcome again @greta. Maybe it’s time to move away,” he said.

Schlapp is not the only Republican who has been reportedly targeted, with former congressional candidate Sean Parnell’s home vandalized last year, as well as Sen. Rand Paul and his wife surrounded and confronted after the Republican National Convention last summer, and former Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai said his family was harassed in 2017.

“My house was vandalized last night by cowards under the cover of darkness. This is what is at stake in this election. We all must fight for our country and we must do it NOW. I will not cower. I will not back down. I will always fight for this nation,” Parnell tweeted in November, accompanied by a photo of the vandalism.

“At first, I attempted to meet the eyes of one of the protesters and tried to explain that Rand authored the Justice for Breonna Taylor Act, but it seemed to just infuriate them more, as they called me a ‘b—-‘ and ‘racist w—-‘ alongside an endless torrent of ‘f— yous,’” Sen. Paul’s wife, Kelley Paul, wrote in a Washington Examiner opinion piece of being confronted by Black Lives Matter members last August.

“People were threatening to murder my children,” said Pai during an interview with the Washington Examiner. “So, my son, who was in kindergarten at the time, couldn’t take the school bus to school for that entire year.”
