Okla. Republican arrested for spraying racist graffiti on an elementary school and Democratic office

A registered Republican has been arrested for allegedly spray-painting racist graffiti on several buildings in Oklahoma, including the local Democratic Partys headquarters.

Allison Christine Johnson, 45, reportedly turned herself into police in Norman on Thursday, a week after initial reports of terroristic threats made at the state Democratic Party headquarters and the Chickasaw Nation headquarters, both located in Oklahoma City, were reported.

Police were called seven days ago after the concrete outside the two buildings was painted with neo-Nazi rheotoric like Gas the Jews and Welcome to Germany.

Johnson also allegedly spray-painted 1488 outside one of the buildings, a reference to the neo-Nazi 14 words slogan, We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children, and the 88 numerical code for HH, which stands for Heil Hitler. 

A manifesto with the words Trump, Pence, Hitler 2020 and a vandalized picture of former President Barack Obama was also left at the door. 

Swastikas, red blood, and the word Jewess were spray-painted over the eyes and forehead of a sculpture of a womans head outside one of the locations in Norman, Oklahoma

A woman has reportedly been taken into custody after allegedly spray-painting racist and anti-Semitic messages on a series of buildings and properties – including a Democratic Party headquarters and an elementary school — in two of Oklahoma’s largest cities.

Allison Christine Johnson was tracked down Thursday afternoon following a joint investigation involving the police departments of Oklahoma City and Norman, and the FBI. The 45-year-old, according to voting records viewed by KFOR, cast her ballot twice as a Democrat in 2007 before switching to the Republican Party.

The buildings Johnson is alleged to have defaced in Norman this week include the Firehouse Art Center, Cleveland County Democratic Party headquarters and McKinley Elementary School. In Oklahoma City last week, it's alleged she defaced the Oklahoma Democratic Party building and Chickasaw Nation offices.

“Investigators believe the alleged suspect for all three incidents is the same suspect believed to be involved in similar incidents that recently occurred at various locations in Oklahoma City,” the Norman Police Department said before Johnson’s arrest.

As of Friday morning, Johnson currently is booked in a Cleveland County jail on a complaint of terroristic threats. No bond has been set, and Oklahoma Police wrote on Facebook that Johnson “will face charges for the graffiti/hate crime incidents in Oklahoma City as well.”

Police there also have released surveillance footage purportedly showing Johnson in the moments before she is alleged to have spray-painted a swastika on one of the buildings
