Mitchell Sign Theft – Once is a Mistake and Twice is a Habit
(Will the courts bother to punish him this time?)
Scottsdale, AZ – The David Schweikert for Congress campaign has just received word that two Mitchell Campaign staffers were seen removing a Schweikert Campaign sign and replacing it with a Mitchell sign.
“It looks like Harry is up to his old tricks.” said J.P. Twist a Schweikert campaign spokesman. “You would think that he would have learned his lesson the first time he was caught doing this a few years back.” added Twist. A few years ago, Mitchell was accused of stealing his opponent’s signs in a state legislative race.
The incident comes on the heels of recent press reports about Young Democrats also stealing signs in the Tempe area this election cycle.
The two men were seen on the corner of Elliot and McClintock in Tempe. The observer noticed the two men take down the Schweikert sign and move it directly behind the McDonald’s on the corner.
“We demand an apology from Harry Mitchell and his staff.” said Twist. “We have let them slide for continuing to lie about my record but I will not stand for the stealing of our campaign material. Dishonesty reflects only upon him, but theft of signs impacts the entire electorate.” ended Twist.
