This email came to me this week:
We have quit losing signs! Last Wednesday I had had it! I called the Sheriff. We talked a long time. He said he would cruise around by my site and he also said he would talk with everyone living within sight of the signs. I called several Republican neighbors to let them know the sheriff would be around, and discussed the problem with them.
The sheriff wasted no time. The next morning, our next door neighbor, a Democrat, said the sheriff had been out and talked to them the night before. Also I’m sure he talked with the person I suspected (also closest to the signs) because I have lost no more signs after that. I doubt if he owned up to it, but at least he knows the sheriff is watching.
A victory for the first amendment.
