Here is the message sent to Chief of Police, Brian Smith and to Sheriff Bill Benedict
Good Morning Sheriff, Brian:
Yesterday I put out a dozen campaign signs, within the city limits and with permission of the property owners.
This morning all but two are gone missing–stolen.
Yesterday morning on my Port O Call website I got an anonymous message saying,
“We can snuff out your campaign the same way we snuffed out your newspaper.”
Of course you know this strikes at the heart of American freedoms to be able to run a free and unfettered election without outside meddling and unlawful interference.
I hope you will put out a message to all news media that it is a misdemeanor to molest anyone’s campaign signs. Also, am offering a $100 reward for information leading to the arrest of anyone molesting ANYONE’s campaign signs.
