Several Wichita area candidates complained to The Eagle about having their yard signs stolen during the recent election season, and pointed fingers at their opponents — who were likely to return the finger-pointing.
There are always a few overzealous partisans who flout the rules. But the problem seemed pretty bad this election season.
Moreover, some major candidates, whose organizers should have known better (including Jim Barnett, Phill Kline and Todd Tiahrt), had rows of signs stuck illegally in medians and on corners.
Both parties were guilty of signage infractions.
A thought: Why can’t the Sedgwick County Election Office hire a few people, especially on the weekend before the election, to aggressively police signs and respond to infractions and dirty tricks?
What do bloggers think? Should election officials take sign scofflaws more seriously?
