Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) has reportedly not been warmly welcomed into a northern Virginia neighborhood.

The freshman senator from Ohio has been “yarn bombed” by neighbors in a suburb outside of Washington, D.C.

“Yarn bombing” is a form of graffiti in which knitted yarn is used to vandalize objects by giving them a wrap. A report says, “rainbow knitting now covers a signpost” near Vance’s house.

Vance bought a $1.5 million home in a neighborhood described as a “liberal enclave,” per the Politico report, which is allegedly filled with “filled with Pride flags and Kindness posters.”

The Ohio senator took office in January after defeating Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) in the 2022 midterm elections. Senators will typically purchase homes in the Washington, D.C. area, as the six-year terms ensure more job security than the two-year terms in the House of Representatives.

Other senators have also not been welcomed in their northern Virginia residences, Sen. Josh Hawley’s (R-MO) home was swarmed with protesters in January 2021 prior to the joint session of Congress to certify the 2020 presidential election.

Hawley’s wife filed a criminal complaint against the organizers of the Jan. 4, 2021, protest, alleging the group was yelling outside of the residence while Hawley’s wife and newborn were home and Hawley was away in Missouri.

Vance’s office declined to comment.
