Yesterday a volunteer from the McCain campaign wrecked my Obama '08 bumper sticker on my car.
There was at least one McCain volunteer in our neighborhood yesterday around noon. My mother had just gotten home from work around 12:30. She came in, furiously, and said "Go look what they did to your car, because this better be a joke."
That's what I found. My bumper sticker was half way torn off and a McCain/Palin pamphlet was placed under it. This person actually went about 5-10 feet into my yard to do this crap.
I went around my block and bumper stickers were placed on all of my neighbor's porches. Including my own.
My father and I drove around the area looking for the guy, I asked around and the folks in the neighborhood who saw him say that he was around in a ten minute time span.
No luck so we did go to the Police. They couldn't really do much since we had no ID on the person who did this. But the officer we spoke to told us to call 9/11 if we see another trespasser like this on our property. We will and I am keeping my eye out.
I went to the Luzerne County Republican Headquarters on the Square to voice my complaint. They were nice, but tried to convince me that it must have been some prankster in my neighborhood. That is bull. I know and understand that the McCain campaign itself does not condone such actions, but this could not have been anyone else but an individual with immediate access to those pamphlets. Not a pamphlet was missing from a home on my street or immediate area.
Whoever did this was a McCain volunteer with those pamphlets.
I did get a replacement for my bumpersticker.
But these actions do not speak positively at all. The actions of this individual does represent the McCain campaign.
We all know what a fit there would be if an Obama volunteer had done this.
