The tombstone of Hillary Clinton’s father, Hugh Rodham, was knocked over in a possible case of vandalism, police in Pennsylvania said Tuesday.
Scranton Police Chief Carl Graziano said someone reported the stone had been disturbed at the Washburn Street Cemetery on Tuesday morning, according to a local report.
“I’m not sure how else it would have fallen over,” police chief Carl Graziano told the Scranton Times-Tribune newspaper.
Cemetery caretaker Paul McGloin told the paper that the stone was later fixed.
“I hope this had nothing to do with politics because that’s just wrong,” he said, according to the report, which comes days after the former secretary of state, senator and first lady announced her second presidential campaign.
Rodham died following a stroke in 1993, in Little Rock, Arkansas, months after President Bill Clinton’s inauguration. He was buried at the cemetery in his birthplace of Scranton.
