Trump signs vandalized across Erie region

Local News

Donald Trump supporters are angry after yard signs across the region are stolen and vandalized.

Campaign volunteers say dozens of the small trump yard signs are being taken, while the large ones are being damaged. They say the activity just recently started.

Volunteers warn those involved that when the signs are removed, more go up, that it’s their first amendment right to support the candidate of their choice.

They say perpetrators are being prosecuted.

“It just seems a little childish,” volunteer Patricia Bloomstine says. “It’s almost as if they don’t want people to know that there is such a great support for Trump when in reality there’s a lot of Democrats and Republicans supporting him. “

Volunteers say some Trump supporters are going as far as to put cameras on their signs to protect them.
