Well, it's official now. At least as far as what has been sent to the Plaindealer. Republican and Democrat and Independent political signs have been vandalized in the county.
How do we know this?
We are the recipient of photo after photo after photo of spray-painted sign, or slashed sign or mangled or knocked over sign. You name the way you can destroy a political sign, and you pick the party represented on the sign, and we have a photo of it courtesy of someone in the county.
The messages accompanying these photos sent to us are varied.
"What are you going to do about this, Plaindealer?"
"Why is there no condemnation from the other side?"
And so forth.
We even got photos sent to us on our Twitter account from a self-proclaimed political "agitator," implying that our "silence" on these misdemeanor occurrences somehow implicated us in a broad conspiracy to subvert some such something or other.
