Employees at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum discovered March 5 the graffiti in black spray paint on the polished granite entrance sign that read “Ron DeFascist.”

According to the Simi Valley Police Department, library officials reported the incident just before 7:30 a.m., a few hours ahead of a scheduled visit by Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis.

DeSantis’ visit was for promoting his new book, “The Courage to Be Free: Florida’s Blueprint for America’s Revival.”

A police spokesperson said that investigators believe the graffiti vandalism took place overnight and there were no witnesses. No threats were made. Reagan Library employees were able to remove the graffiti prior to the governor’s visit.
