LEBANON A life-sized cardboard cutout of President Barack Obama that greeted visitors to the Democratic Party booth at the Warren County Fair was stolen for the second time in two years.
And Bethe Goldenfield, chairman of the countys Democratic Party, said she doesnt think its a laughing matter. A similar cutout was stolen last year then returned, Goldenfield said, after being damaged by juveniles. Last year, Democratic volunteers found the entrance to their headquarters blocked by a massive pile of horse manure.
At the time, Goldenfield said her staff was sickened by the prank. In the days before the pile appeared, dozens of Democratic signs around Lebanon and other Warren County towns were torn down, she said.
And now the cardboard cutout has been pilfered again.
When volunteers arrived at the fair to operate the booth Friday morning, they discovered the cutout of Obama, which was hidden behind the curtain, was missing. A similar cutout of U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown, a box of Democratic Party T-shirts, an aluminum ladder and raffle tickets werent stolen, she said.
It was like they were stalking our booth, Goldenfield said. How else would they have known where he (Obama) was?
Goldenfield said she contacted the fair office and was told there were no surveillance cameras in the area. She said security personnel at the fair searched for the life-size cutout, but were unsuccessful.
She said the Democratic Party ordered another cutout, which, including shipping, costs about $75.
The behavior reflects a commonly accepted lack of civility and respect on the part of opposition political parties in Warren County, Goldenfield said. This was premeditated. We have an intimidating, bullying mentality around here.
She said about 25 percent to 30 percent of the registered voters in the county are Democrats, and the party is getting positive attention.
Goldenfield said the pranks reflect an unacceptable pattern rationalized and reinforced by the lop-sided political reality of our county. Warren County has a rich political history, which is tarnished and degraded by such senseless partisan acts. Warren County deserves better.
David Nichols, chairman of the Warren County Republican party, was unavailable for comment.
Several places they could look for it come to mind. The only one I’m willing to share though is this - check the nearest public restroom, the woman’s side...
It was found later in a corn field in Iowa.
“if you build it...you don’t own it..”
“check the nearest public restroom, the womans side...”
check the closest firing range
First thing that sprang into my fevered mind...........
I am shocked also. /s
I hope that it doesn’t show up at our firing range. We don’t allow using targets that look like people, but I am very afraid that some might make an exception in this case.
Obviously it was stolen by satan worshippers.
Was it wearing a hoodie?
Check the MSNBC newsroom? It is likely surrounded by candles.
According to the latest reports based on interviews with insiders, the heist was ordered, financed and planned by Helen Thomas. Alas, poor Helen did not live to see its successful conclusion.
It has ascended.
Wawawa. Someone stole a cutout. Someone dumped manure. Well, this is such a small price to pay for a stolen election and the crap that has been dumped on Americans since the zero was elected.
You would think the Democrats would be over joyed at this anonymous donation.
After all it is what they peddle to the American public year after year.
Maybe this year they will find the cutout stuck head first in the horse manure.
They put the manure there themselves and they stole the cutout themselves
Bring it back. The cutout would govern better.
Bush Did It !
