Political Signs Being Stolen

Some people in eastern Carolina are waking up to find their political signs for Barack Obama or John McCain stolen from their front yard.

A Greenville woman noticed her Obama signs were missing from her front yard Thursday morning. After speaking with neighbors--she found out she was not alone.

Obama headquarters say they have received several phone calls from supporters missing yard signs. People are reporting they saw a silver Mercedes with teenagers taking signs. People we spoke with say they hope it's all a prank.

McCain headquarters say they are also receiving calls about stolen signs from supporters. They say they plan to use pepper spray on the signs the put out to keep thieves away.

    We put our signs out and sure enough some teenagers came and stole it. This happend over a month ago. We called the Greenville PD and they came out took our complaint and did NOTHING about it. We even had the license plate of the car that took the sign. All we wanted was our sign back. This is rediculous. BBQ lover you really didn't even need to waste your time commenting on this story, you could have just kept that thought to yourself.

    This is one of the worst elections for people not respecting others veiws. I watched someone SPIT on someones McCain sticker on their car the other day. Everyone has their own opinions and views and we should all respect them.

    Um Wolfgang... Obama signs were being stolen too? It's amazing how quick you Conservatives are to blame the "crazy liberals" for the problems in this country. Stop whining.

    The Liberal Democrat parents probably told them to do this crime. If they get caught they will only get a slap on the hand. Bad Boys and Girls. That is if they are teenagers? They could be just young Dems? If the Democrats act like this. How can you ever expect them to run our country if they steal and commit crimes. To good hard working Americans?
