Busted on Video: Romney Camp Takes Down Hundreds of Santorum Signs; Cops Watch
Big Government ^ | 02/22/2012 | Rebel Pundit

Posted on 02/22/2012 7:41:57 AM PST by writer33

In Michigan, Santorum supporters planted hundreds of campaign signs in Shelby Township prior to Mitt Romney’s appearance today. Some of these signs were planted alongside sidewalks and roadways across from and surrounding the Romney campaign stop. Approximately two hours before the scheduled event, Romney campaign staffers, including Dennis Lennox of Topinabee, MI, began planting Romney signs in front of the location. Around the same time, several other people, who refused to identify themselves, began uprooting hundreds of Santorum signs along the roadway leading to the event. Signs placed at a commercial intersection were also removed.

When asked to explain his actions, Santorum supporters were confronted with obscenities from one person removing signs. He claimed to be unaffiliated with the Romney campaign.

One officer on the scene, Lou Francis, refused to assist in retrieving stolen campaign signs valued at over $1500.

The Romney campaign has to be one of the sleaziest, most unscrupulous out there.

When I was a kid, signs such as garage sale signs and political signs placed along thouroughfares were against city ordinances.

During the political season I used to go along the major roads and collect huge bundles of free fire wood. Never knew anything about any of the candidates, but they sure helped get unseasoned hardwood started.

Where I am it is illegal to remove campaign signs within 30 days of an election, on public property, unless there is a public safety issue. A number of years ago a member of the city council was fined by the cops for removing a sign of an opponent posted at a busy intersection.

Romney hires illegals to take down Santorum signs.

Romney uses democratic tactics because Romney is a democrat.

I don’t see how any conservative can possibly support the commie Romney.

In Texas, we call this “baiting.” You put up a Republican sign and get in a tree stand with your 30.06 and wait. Some Dem will show up sooner or later. The only thing better is parking a Corvette on the side of the road with the hood up. You’ll bag one in under a minute with that trick.

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.

This is yet another indicator of Romney’s character (or, more accurately, LACK OF CHARACTER). His campaign is using typical progressive Democrat campaign tactics. Remember, “YOU SHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS”.

Here’s hoping that the good folks participating in Michigan’s Republican primary will see through Romney & his tactics and give Santorum a well deserved victory.

Rather than bemoaning the tactics of the enemies the idea is to escalate.

Obadiah, click on the video link and review the video please. The Romneyites were removing Santorum signs and planting Romney signs simultaneously “alongside sidewalks and roadways”.

Signs stapled high on a pole with an envelope filled with paint stapled behind the sign will discourage there removal. Because the perp must stand directly below the sign and is using a pole with a hook on it to pull it down. Once the perp gives it a yank to pull it down winds up getting paint dumped on him when pulling the sign down.

Vasoline or grease applied to the back of yard signs appled to the top back and sides of the sign will have the same effect.

This is just local politics, but a guy told me of a man running for office in his area who woke up one morning and found his opponent’s signs in his yard. He went out and removed them. But his opponent had a photographer in the bushes across the street and got video footage of him removing “his opponent’s” signs. He was set up. And he lost the election.

Not that that is what happened here. After all, I’m sure if it was they would have said so, rather than cop the attitude they did. ;-)

This is so pathetic. Romney’s campaign is so dirty he is going to inevitably turn off voters who supported Santorum, Gingrich, Paul, Cain or others who were in the race. And when he loses to Obama in the general election and loses a large majority of states, do you think he’ll blame his immensely negative campaign for destroying his voter turnout? No. Romney and the RINO cabal will blame the Tea Party and conservatives for not being intelligent enough to understand how he is really a “severe” conservative.

Cheboygan Co. Drain Commissioner Dennis Lennox resigns

06.06.2011

CHEBOYGAN CO., MI — Cheboygan County Drain Commissioner Dennis Lennox has resigned from his job.

He made the announcement today and it takes effect immediately.

Lennox was the center of several controversies during his time as drain commissioner.

First he tried to eliminate his own job. Later he faced legal trouble for using county stamps to send out campaign material in Christmas cards. He was found not guilty.

Most recently he brought a man dressed as Santa Claus to a commission meeting trying to get to the board to formally support Christmas.
