Everyone by now has caught the mass vandalism of Brad's signs by Sheila supporters. It is interesting when your support includes a bunch of vandals. I also think it is curious how many of Sheila's signs are in places where they clearly don't have authorization from the owners of the property. For example, at the corner of East Walnut and Jackson there is a big Cole sign that has been vandalized and two or three Sheila signs.
I read a nice letter from John Rendleman in the SI yesterday about this. John is a smart guy and should easily be able to figure out who has access to the 50 or so Simon signs that have been put up illegally over last weekend. You could easily draw a line between the people who put up the encroaching signs and the vandals. Their method was to destroy a Cole sign and put up a Simon sign or 3. I guess asking them to go remove the Sheila signs from the places they don't have permission would be to much?
It was interesting to see Joe Moore's signs up in what appeared to be illegal locations next to my polling place yesterday. He had one on SIU land and one on the other side too (I think that land belongs to the fellow who daughter was a great CCHS runner a couple years back). They were just off the Church lot, so maybe they were legal? Does SIU let you put up political signs? You can check it out at the corner of Chautuaqua and Glenview. Strangely enough, I gave him a vote yesterday. Decided I would rather have him then most of the other choices.
