Anonymous Vigilante in Washington Offers $100 Reward for Catching Yard Sign Vandals

Some one is evidently sick of hearing about political yard sign  damage, this year, and has decided to take matters into his own hands.

Via KATU:

CLARK COUNTY, Wash. – Someone is putting up signs around southwest Washington promising to pay a reward for catching people vandalizing or damaging political signs, but whoever’s behind the effort doesn’t want to be identified.

The signs are popping up among other political signs this election season in areas across southwest Washington.

From the theft of a Republican political sign in Vancouver that was caught on camera to tomatoes tossed at a Vancouver home with a Democratic sign out front, it’s been a contentious political season.

Now, someone’s paying to erect the signs that promise a $100 reward for sign vandalism and warning of a possible $5,000 fine for anyone caught damaging or stealing signs.

Some of the signs ended up in the Clark County Republican Party office, but they claim not to know who’s behind the reward signs..

More here:

Little is known about the person or group behind Signthug.com, a website offering up to $100 for information about political sign destruction or defacement.

The group’s signs are being distributed in Clark and Cowlitz counties, according to media reports. The signs direct people to visit the Sign Thug website for details about the reward, but the website merely states that details will be forthcoming.

The logo on Sign Thug’s website includes an image of brass knuckles, and it provides this message for political sign vandals: “Don’t these Sign Thugs know that purposeful damage to personal property including vandalism and graffiti is a gross misdemeanor and punishable up to 90 days to 1 year in jail with fines reaching $5,000.00!”

According to state law, removing or defacing a political advertisement is a misdemeanor (rather than a gross misdemeanor) that could result in a maximum of 90 days in jail and no more than a $1,000 fine.

Kyle Baxter was paid to create the website on behalf of the mysterious crusader, but Baxter said he could not reveal the name of his client. He also said he is not affiliated with his client’s cause.

“They wanted to remain anonymous,” said Baxter, of the Gig Harbor-based website design company Site Tonight. “I don’t even know who they are.”
