Who's Stealing The Signs?
Like the Times- Standard mentions, stealing campaign signs is nothing new around here, but I still can't help but wonder who is doing it?
I started noticing it a couple weeks ago. The first ones gone weren't even Prop 8 signs. Someone stole two signs from the Matteoli's yard across the street from my house: A Jager sign and, believe it or not, the sign designating their house as one of those in the Eureka Heritage Society's Home Tour. What's up with that?
Shortly after that, the morning after they put it up, the Matteoli's Yes on Prop 8 sign was gone. Then I noticed a Yes on 8 sign around the corner on F street. The next day I drive by there, that one was gone.
So far the three yard signs in my front yard are still there. I keep expecting to come out some morning and find them all gone. A few years ago I woke up to find all five of the signs I had up gone. I guess there's still time.
You'd think someone, one of these days, would find a big pile of stolen signs somewhere. That might lead to a clue as to who some of these people are. Until then we can only wonder.
If any of the people visiting this blog have been stealing signs, would you mind explaining why you think it's ok to do that.
