The King campaign is so desperate from the incredible number of signs they are putting up to King admitting he needs to spend all of his $1.6million to win re-election, they have now resorted to theft and vandalism.
Newsday reports "Vandals took a large sign for congressional candidate David Mejias from his mother's lawn in Farmingdale Wednesday night and then plastered Elsa Mejias' car with bumper stickers for incumbent Rep. Peter King (R-Seaford), according to Nassau County police. Mejias, a Nassau County legislator from North Massapequa, said, "I've been in some pretty brutal campaigns but this is ridiculous."
In a statement King said, "Obviously no one in my campaign would have been involved in any act of vandalism. For all we know, it could have been contrived by a desperate Mejias campaign, which knows it can always get cheap and easy coverage in Newsday."
The problem is that republicans stealing and vandalizing around election time is a well-known activity.
In local races last year we reported and had pictures of vandalism and a republican committee-man caught red-handed stealing signs from private property and signs being stolen from candidates homes.
The cameras are out again this year and the republican thugs WILL be caught.
I do know of a Heller for Assembly sign that was removed and replaced by a King sign on Hicksville Road.
