WWW: Stealing Yard Signs

This edition of Weird World Wednesday is a bit embarrassing because it is one from my proverbial county backyard. This Kansas City Star article reports:
Another Johnson County political operative has been charged with stealing a political sign during last month’s election campaigns.

Richard Downing, campaign manager for state Sen. Julia Lynn, an Olathe Republican, appeared Thursday in Olathe Municipal Court charged with misdemeanor theft.
The alleged incident occurred just before Johnson County Commissioner John Toplikar received a similar ticket for taking a sign belonging to his opponent, Calvin Hayden.

Toplikar was videotaped taking Hayden’s sign.
Is this weird or what? I remember being stunned when I saw this video report about Commissioner Toplikar stealing a yard sign on the evening news.

Do you have these types of problems in your neck of the woods?
