Tenney And Brindisi Spar Over Vandalized Campaign Signs
Congresswoman Claudia Tenney is accusing supporters of her challenger of the theft and destruction of her campaign yard signs.
Tenney says several "Claudia Tenney for Congress" signs were recently uprooted and left on their sides along Oneida Street in Chadwicks.
She says the signs were put up right in front of the former Word of Life Church.
Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi 's campaign says they've recently fielded numerous complaints about vandalized and stolen yard signs as well.
The reports include profane graffiti drawn on yard signs, stolen signs throughout the district, and unauthorized placement of Claudia Tenney signs on private property.
"Destroying or stealing yard signs of any kind is wrong and I condemn it. Claudia Tenney should call on her supporters to immediately stop this recent wave of vandalization," said Ellen Foster, campaign manager for Anthony Brindisi. "Our campaign has never encouraged supporters to engage in this kind of behavior. Our supporters have been too busy knocking over 100,000 doors to deface or steal lawn signs."
Brindisi’s campaign has filed a complaint with the Oneida County sheriff’s office about destroyed and stolen signs in the area.
