Local Republican Signs Stolen

Local Republicans have suffered sign theft recently. Of course, local Republican yard signs aren't just flat signs. Their advertisements are shaped like cubes.

The local Republicans provided photos from the website, Facebook. And the local GOP says it appears these young folks ended up with the stolen signs. Republican party chair Chris Winn jokingly says three signs have been "kidnapped" in the last three weeks.

On a more serious note Winn believes people have the right to express their political support, but sign stealing is essentially depriving people of their political rights. "And lets respect the rights of citizens to have yard signs and for the parties to put these signs up in legal right always so that people can support their candidates of choice," says Winn.

Stealing signs is a Class C misdemeanor. However, Winn is not looking to prosecute. He just wants the sign stealing stopped.
