I reported earlier that Rep. David Scott's office was defaced by a swastika, though the location of the vandalism was unclear. Now, it's coming out that the defacement took place in his Smyrna, Ga., office. Capitol Police are treating the incident as a hate crime.

Scott is both a fiscally conservative "Blue Dog" Democrat and a member of the Congressional Black Caucus.
