Democratic Party chairwoman offering financial reward for info about stolen campaign signs
To the Editor:
The theft of campaign yard signs is illegal and considered a misdemeanor theft by law enforcement.
The Democratic Party began selling and distributing Obama-Biden campaign yard signs two weeks ago. One of our faithful purchased two for her private property – one for the front of her home on South Main Street in Madison, and one for the back on Old Post Road. In one week, one sign was stolen, and a few days ago, the other was stolen.
Was it kids? Was it adults? Their election season “rite of passage” will be taken seriously by the police and sheriff, and will cost the perpetrator:
• jail time up to 12 months,
• a fine up to $1,000,
• and embarrassment, humiliation and a criminal record.
Every theft of a Democratic campaign sign will be reported officially to the authorities, and I, personally, want to make it profitable for others to turn the criminals in.
I am offering a financial reward to anyone who gives information to the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department (706) 342-1507 or the Madison City Police (706) 342-1275 which leads to the capture and conviction of those who steal Democratic campaign yard signs.
10th Congressional District,
Democratic Party of Georgia
