“It was so fucking wet tonight,” Amanda Siebe tweeted shortly after midnight Monday morning. “But still, we brought down 2 statues. It was an amazing thing to see those statues fall! Not a damn copper in sight!”

About an hour later, the former candidate taunted “Proud Boys” in a retweet of her original message.

An Indigenous People’s faction of Antifa staged a “Day of Rage” for Sunday night. During the event, vandals tore down two statues honoring the former presidents and smashed windows on a history museum, police station, and multiple downtown Portland businesses, Breitbart News reported.

Siebe, a self-described Berniecrat, ran as a Democrat for Oregon’s 1st Congressional District in the May 19 primary. She finished third in a four-way race garnering 6.7 percent of the vote. Incumbent Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR) won the race with nearly 84 percent of the vote. Bonamici now faces Republican challenger Christopher Christensen in the November general election.

Siebe appears to be a regular attendee of the protests and riots in the Portland area.
