The Romney team today confirmed grass-roots reports that a campaign bus was sabotaged by an unknown vandal over the weekend.

The bus, which was being used for campaign events but not transporting Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, was parked in Richmond, Va., when the vehicle was tampered with late Saturday night or early Sunday morning.

A Romney campaign official told PJM that the alternator belt was cut. Repairs were under way Monday to get the bus back on the road for a voter registration event in Springfield, Va., from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Springfield Metro Commuter Lot.

A “Moms for Mitt” mobile phone bank that had been scheduled for 11:30 a.m. this morning in Leesburg, Va., had to be canceled because of the disabled bus.

The official said other reports that the bus’ tires had been slashed were incorrect.

No police report was filed on the incident and there were no suspects.
