This is the time of year when candidates, well, mainly candidates’ supporters, knock down opponents’ signs, replace them with then own, if they aren’t very bright, or just put their candidates’ sign in front of the opponents, if they are more astute.
Candidates without supporters in an area, put their signs on the public right-of-way, not remotely legal.
Just talked to a Republican candidate for County Board in District 5 who said his volunteers were campaigning in Lake in the Hills, leaving literature at front doors, when one saw a girl get out of a car, go up to a house and take the literature.
When confronted, the girl said, “Oh, I thought that was out literature.”
Why would someone remove their own candidates’ literature?
In this day of phones that take pictures, that’s a really strange thing to do.
Not to mention politically dangerous.
This could end up being a developing story.
