Political yard signs are targets for vandals

Posted: Updated:

While the political battle heats up the closer we get to election day, another political battle is also heating up. It's taking place on the lawns of homeowners.

Political yard signs are increasingly becoming the targets of vandals.

In Green Hills, an Obama supporter became so angry at the repeated vandalism of his huge yard sign that he took drastic action. The homeowner installed two fences, one electrified, a security camera and spike strips to protect the sign from cars slamming into it.

The vandalism is not limited to one party or one area of Middle Tennessee. In Clarksville, an entire street of Romney yard signs were defaced.

"They went down the street with a spray can, and hit all the signs on one street," said Keith Svadba of the Montgomery County Republican Party.

The most offensive act of vandalism occurred at the Sumner County Democratic Headquarters in Gallatin. 

A bumper sticker was placed on the window that read, "The Bro and his ho gotta go."

Gallatin police are investigating the incident. They have no suspects.
