McCain Supporter Charged With Stealing Obama Signs

From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette [link];

A McCain campaign volunteer in Blair County has been charged with one misdemeanor count of receiving stolen property for allegedly plucking 40 Obama signs from public areas and placing them in the back of his sport utility vehicle.

Logan Township police yesterday charged Michael G. Jennings, 39, after finding the signs in his vehicle at the county's Republican Committee headquarters. Officers were tipped off by a Democratic committeeman.

Mr. Jennings told police "that he did indeed take the signs from the roadways, but it was in an attempt to prove a point to the Democratic Party for them stealing McCain/Palin elections signs," according to a police affidavit.

Apparently Mike the Sign Stealer didn't have a dog to mark his spot so stealing the signs was the next best thing!
