Grijalva captures sign theft on hidden camera

TUSD Governing Board President Adelita Grijalva, running for re-election, said Monday that she has hidden-camera footage of someone stealing her campaign signs. Offering a $500 reward to anyone who can identify the alleged thief, Grijalva said that she's lost $7,000 in signs this year.

"This effort is calculated to silence our message and the visibility of my candidacy," she said in a Facebook post.

Grijalva set up a hidden video camera to monitor a spot on West Speedway where her signs were repeatedly disappearing, she said.

"One of the videos is from two nights ago, and another from four nights ago," she said in an interview.

"I had six signs stolen right in a row," she said. "We had supporters put some up at 10 o'clock at night, and in the morning they were gone."

Stealing campaign signs is a misdemeanor. Grijalva hasn't yet filed a police report, but will do so if the person involved in the incident is identified, she said.

"It wouldn't do any good to file a report unless we have a good idea of who it is," she said.

"We're hoping someone will recognize him, or his outfit, or his car," she said.

I don’t think anyone in the Grijalva family has room to point fingers on this issue. Remember when one of the Walrus’ fluff boys was caught stealing Ruth McClung signs?

No pity from me, and not just because it is the daughter of the traitorous human walrus. If you are so stupid that your vote can be swayed for any political candidate or cause by a small sign on the side of the road, then you are a moron who has no business voting and should just keep your mouth shut.

I hope someone goes around and steals all the signs from all the candidates from all over town. I hate how they uglify our community so horribly every two years.

If this sign “thief” is caught, then I’d like to buy him a drink.
