The Democratic county parties that comprise the 8th Congressional District have pooled their resources to create a $300 reward system that will pay for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of individuals who are doing malicious damage to and theft of Democrat candidates’ signage. This behavior by individuals who have issues with the First Amendment is not only illegal and has stiff penalties but is morally wrong. Anyone with information on offenders should report that person to local law enforcement, and also contact the Democratic chairperson of that county, recommends Mary Ginnebaugh, chair of the Democratic 8th Congressional District.
“The widespread theft and destruction of political candidate signs is unprecedented in my years of experience,” says Ginnebaugh. “Local law enforcement officials do what they can, but the problem is clearly widespread and requires citizens to help stop this behavior. Hopefully, this reward will encourage people to keep a closer watch in their neighborhoods for political candidate sign thefts and destruction.”
More than a hundred signs have been reported as stolen in Brown County alone in this year’s election season.
