🚨 You need to know

Del Ray is traditionally known as a welcoming neighborhood. Freshman Senator J.D. Vance from Ohio seems to be a notable exception.

Politico reported that a signpost near Vance’s new $1.5 million home has been yarn bombed — covered with rainbow knitting, likely in protest against Vance’s anti-LGBTQ positions.

Washingtonian senior editor Andrew Beaujon noted that the yarn bombing is a step up from the guerrilla fairy door campaign back in 2021.
