Opponents of Amendments 60 and 61 and Proposition 101 accused of yard sign attacks

Each election season, plenty of political yard signs are stolen or defaced, but Aurora's Rob McNealy says there's a new twist on this vandalism when it comes to Amendments 60 and 61 and Proposition 101 -- tearing down vote-yes placards and replacing them with opposing ones.

"It's been going on for weeks," says McNealy, who's both a Libertarian candidate for U.S. Representative in Congressional District 6 and an energetic volunteer for 60-61-101, which call for property tax reductions, the forbidding of debt by loan and the repeal or downsizing of vehicle, income and telecom taxes. "And it's just getting worse and more aggressive."

According to McNealy, "it started off a couple of weeks ago, where they were just pulling them off the poles. Then, they started clipping them with wire cutters. Now, they're slicing them with box cutters or other tools -- literally shredding them to bits. And then they're putting an opposition sign up. They're making a clear statement: 'We're going to destroy you.'"     - More
