Museum Promoters Turn to Vandalism

On my way home from our Citizens For Responsible Spending Town Hall meeting I replaced four vandalized Vote No signs. Tomorrow, I will replace all other vandalized and will do so until the election.

I offer a reward or $500.00 for the verifiable name of these punks and $1000.00 reward for their arrest and conviction.

I knew that some of these "promoters" would stoop to anything. I look for more lies and exagerations, cowardly acts from a few of these people or their punk kids.

This is a good news, Merle.

They can't beat us with rational arguments. Logic and reason is against them.

We are right, they are wrong, and the public knows it.

So they resort to violence against out signage.

It's one step removed from wrecking printing presses and burning books.

Merle I think that is quite a leap to make those accusations. I realize that the CRS do not have near the budget that the Museum folk do but the signs did appear rather fragile. Yesterday was a very windy day and in fact a flower pot was knocked off my front porch. Have you called the vendor and complained of wind damage?

The signs I saw that were vandalized were spray painted. I wouldn't consider "blown away" as vandalism, ie you notice the sign laying on the ground a few feet away.

It really is a sorry state of affairs that someone, not necessarily the entire side of an issue, has to stoop so low.

Same kinda thing happened to McCain signage too. Wounder if its the same kinda people?

BTW, where do I get my Vote No sign??

Diane Vespa said...

Of course I stand corrected if that is the case. That is lower than low. Hope they catch them.

Merle - this is information we need to get out. If you talk to Karrie, tell her she needs to put this on the front page of the http://www.nomuseumtax.org/ website!!

You do realize that some "Vote Yes" signs were vandalized as well.

The type of behavior I've seen on this blog, including accusing others of selling a yes vote with absolutely no proof, is beneath our elected officials.

Merle,

Thanks for all your work. It is nice to know there are still some sane Peorians.

Vonster said...

After decades of watching politics, I'm convinced NOTHING is below our elected leaders (or some of their dedicated followers).

Merle Widmer said...

Thanks

Merle, I notice a lot of the "Vote no" signs are improperly placed on public right of ways. Are you and the CRS aware of the sign ordinances, and if so, are you explaining proper sign placement to your sign putter-outers?

The Vote Yes signs all seem to be legally placed on private property, with few exceptions.
