Santorum camp could just play this over and over.

Romney camp would freak out and as you expect deny they had anything to do with it.

I don't know what is worse... the guy taking down the signs or the Cops standing by and not arresting him.

The Paultards use the tactic of plastering every corner with 1,000 signs - often covering up those of their competitor, and the Romney camp resorts to stealing Santorum signs. Both prove they are shameless DUmocrats who don’t like competition.

Well,,,, my trick is to rub the signs with poison ivy.

I think the DIY paintball landmine has a lot of potential. For example, you could make a split chamber and fill half with paint and the other half with the most lethal hot sauce you can buy.

Look, I do NOT want Mittens, but I HATE when Liberals do this (and they do it all the time). You cannot put signs in public right-of-ways, so it was appropriate that these signs would be removed.

Then why are the Romney signs left untouched - ?

That aside - Public right-of-ways? Seen them used across the country for decades.

ROmbots = disseminators.

I think political signs are a complete waste of time and money. Plus, they are an eyesore. Now really, who has ever been persuaded by a sign to align with a particular candidate or party? An informal poll on this thread would be interesting.

Well, I guess there is finally eye witness proof that he is a Democrat.

Shelby Township is big big BIG time UAW. The phrase "Reagan Democrat" was coined there. They almost always vote Democrat according to their union newsletter. The only exception was back when Jimmy Carter was about to put us all on bicycles.

If they are working this hard for Mitt, he must be a Democrat too.

The state probably has a law against posting anything in public right-of-way. They don’t generally enforce these bans on political signs (although I’ve seen police come through the day before an election and take down hundreds of signs here in Virginia).

However, they won’t do anything if other citizens decide to take down the illegal signage. But often they will get upset if they see someone take down some signs, and put up others, for obvious reasons.

So, smart campaigns who want to play dirty will send different people out to take down signs, and then to put up the new signs. Sounds like that’s what is happening here.

The other way they do this is to just put the Romney signs right in front of the Santorum signs, hiding them but not removing them. The problem with that is, while again perfectly “legal” in the sense that all the signs are probably illegal, anybody who notices might get mad at a candidate for playing dirty.

Nowadays they all use the wire sign holders and mostly the plastic “baggie” signs; still, I’ve collected my share of the metal wires, some to put up other signs later, others to use the wire for things.

One officer on the scene, Lou Francis, refused to assist in retrieving stolen campaign signs valued at over $1500.
O.K. all you Michiganians; remember that name: Lou Francis. Raise hell, raise hell and then raise more hell until he is disciplined by the Shelby Township PD.

Obam-mama and his thug unions WANT Romney. He is the only one that they can win against. The people want a Reagen revolution, the Democrats know it.
I guarantee you all, it was the commie socialist anti-constitutional Democrats that were behind this.

"I wonder if sign-remover-man ‘just doing his job’ is a legal immigrant?"

As "legal" as any are hanging around the Home Depot parking lot....
Guess the sign removal crew didn't get the 'I'm running for office, for Pete's sake' memo....
