VIDEO: Casten supporters continue to steal and destroy
Roskam for Congress signs
WHEATON, IL — Every day, local residents are calling the Roskam campaign office reporting yard signs stolen from their property or destroyed. Once again, the theft was caught on camera.
At approximately 8 a.m. Thursday, October 18 in Naperville, a Casten supporter was filmed destroying and removing a Roskam for Congress yard sign.
When confronted in the act, the man preposterously claims he is “just going to put it on another corner” more than 20 miles away in Elmhurst and not even located in the 6th District.
Over and over, Roskam signs are targeted while adjacent signs for other candidates remain untouched.
To date, an estimated 350 Roskam for Congress yard signs have been reported stolen and destroyed.
The sign theft drastically increased since Roskam first called on Casten to stop his supporters’ shameful tricks. Casten’s response? Crickets.
The latest theft captured on video occurred just after House Majority Whip Steve Scalise joined Peter Roskam in Naperville and delivered a stirring speech on his personal experience as the survivor of an assassination attempt driven by angry, vicious political rhetoric.
Instead of seeking bipartisanship and engaging constructively to achieve solutions, Casten continues to employ hateful rhetoric to demonize those who disagree with him.
Casten has also suggested the death of a Supreme Court Justice might be a faster way of getting his preferred policy alternatives accomplished, put forward the language that there is “fury” in his heart and behind his political activities.
“Sean Casten’s hateful rhetoric has set an unfortunate tone for his campaign.” said Roskam for Congress Spokesman Veronica Vera.
“It’s no surprise his supporters are encouraged to employ the worst sort of underhanded Chicago politics, instead of competing to advance substantive ideas that will benefit our community.
“We have called on Casten to denounce the blatant lawbreaking by his supporters and stop using the kind of language and personal attacks that encourage this behavior.
“His silence is deafening. If sent to Washington, Casten’s words and actions show he would make things a lot worse.”
