Presidential politics made the day a bit busier for Torrance police Saturday when a rock was thrown through the local storefront headquarters of Democratic Party about 1 a.m. and later in the day, as Republicans complained that Dukakis supporters had stationed themselves near a voter registration booth at a Greek festival held at the Civic Center.
Dan Chavez, Dukakis coordinator for the South Bay, said he had gone into the Democratic office in the 1500 block of Cravens Street in old downtown Torrance about 1:10 a.m. “I had turned on the lights and, just as I was grabbing the posters, heard this big bang” and a rock came through the window, he said.
Torrance Police Lt. Don Feil said no arrests had been made.
Feil also said that police were researching to see if any law barred Dukakis supporters from campaigning near a voter registration booth at the Greek festival. Feil said Bush supporters had complained about the campaigning.
