Four hundred of Supervisor candidate Kathy Miller’s campaign signs — 400! — were stolen in the wee hours Sunday or Monday in a “concerted effort to hurt Kathy’s campaign,” her campaign reports.
Here’s the press release.
Without speculating who would play such dirty pool, we can agree the theft was a concerted effort. If the thefts were done over the course of an 8-hour night, signs were taken at the rate of almost one per minute. Clearly a team effort.
Miller’s rival, Paul Canepa, denounced the theft. “I don’t agree with people doing that,” Canepa said. Plus, “It’s going to reflect badly on me. I have no part in defacing people’s signs or taking peole’s signs. I know the importance of having integrity in the campaign.”
Canepa added that two of his big — and more expensive — signs have been stolen.
