Police in Greenville, Miss., have made an arrest in connection with the Nov. 1 torching of a black church that was spray-painted with the message “Vote Trump.”
Unfortunately for the Left, it turns out the act was an inside job.
The Associated Press reports that police have arrested Andrew McClinton, 45, a parishioner of the Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church, which was gutted by the fire set a week before the presidential election.
McClinton, who previously served eight years in prison for armed robbery, has been charged with first-degree arson of a place of worship, said Warren Strain, spokesman for the Mississippi Department of Public Safety.
The fire marshal is quoted by the AP as having stated:
We do not believe it was politically motivated. There may have been some efforts to make it appear politically motivated.
