Political sign thieves demonstrate why we need Voter ID!
From the chair – All over Asheville and Buncombe County, night after night, people are stealing/vandalizing signs associated with Republican candidates and other efforts to challenge liberal-progressive-socialist control and corruption in local government.
Famously, we even have a UNC-A professor charged in the act. There are many others and they are not teenagers out on a lark. They are well appointed adults driving nice cars and by form and function clearly comfortable with their mission.
It’s a crime to move, disturb, conceal, vandalize, destroy or steal someone’s political sign. The same people who defend this kind of action are resisting our state’s Voter ID Amendment and for the same reason. Anyone who believes a person willing to break the law and steal signs is not also willing to break the law to corrupt the ballot box is naive.
So, what do we do? Well, we are encouraging people to put out wildlife cameras and otherwise catch people in the act. We will be happy to post your pictures and provide one thing more…
FOR THE ARREST AND CONVICTION OF ANYONE WHO STEALS OR VANDALIZES ANY POLITICAL SIGN IN OUR COMMUNITY BELONGING TO ANY POLITICAL GROUP OR CANDIDATE OF ANY PARTY…
If there’s an arrest or charge – we will provide $500. The other $500 comes with conviction. This reward program begins today and will stay in effect until the stealing stops, the election is over or we run out of money…
In the mean time, our Republican candidates will press on with their mission as the party of normalcy. That our side’s signs are the only ones being epidemically stolen affirms those credentials.
“The robbed that smiles, steals something from the thief.”
