Michael Vijuk sign finally stolen.
After three times of pulling Vijuk’s sign from the bushes at the corner of Haeger’s Bend and Spring Creek Roads, the mean-spirited right-wing child of McHenry County Republican politics finally decided to steal the sign altogether.
This is how Republicans conduct themselves in local elections.Theft, intimidation, vandalism.Local police refuse to get involved.County prosecutors refuse to enforce the law.No Democrat I know of would stoop this low.This sign was walking distance from the homes of County Coroner Ann Majewski and her mother (and long-time Republican operative) Lewanne Majewski.I do not accuse these women, rather I ask them now: PLEASE TELL YOUR REPUBLICAN ASSOCIATES TO STOP THIS BEHAVIOR.Stealing and vandalizing signs is not going to change ONE VOTE.It’s illegal, whether or not you are caught. You need to hold yourselves to a higher standard.
