Police in Pennsylvania confiscated multiple pro-Democrat campaign signs that were placed without permission and covered in razor blades Monday. They say the signs were reported by a homeowner who found them placed in their yard without permission. The individual sliced their finger while trying to remove them. The three signs advocated for Democrats John Fetterman, running for U.S. Senate; Josh Shapiro, running for governor, and Ashley Ehasz, running for U.S. House of Representatives.
The Upper Makefield Police Department released this statement:
“Over the past election cycles, we have dealt with theft of signs, vandalism of signs, neighbor disputes, etc. but this is the first time we have dealt with this situation. What happened here is totally unacceptable and a disgusting act for which a resident ended up slicing their fingers,”
“Campaign signs were placed without permission on a subject’s property. When the resident went to remove the Shapiro sign from their property they were cut by the razor blades placed around the perimeter of the sign. Obviously, this was designed to inflict punishment on anyone who attempted to remove the sign,”
