Yard Sign Theft? Shake It Off

More proof that yard sign vandalism is rarely if never a sign of a political enemy conspiracy...
An Iowa City Police officer says he saw 18-year-old Quinn Conroy walking along South Dodge Street about 1 a.m. Friday carrying several “Conroy for City Council” campaign signs. The officer says he knew Conroy was not the council candidate and noticed his unsteady gait.

Conroy told the officer he had taken the signs from various yards because “they have the same last name as him.” He showed multiple signs of intoxication and registered a .156 BAC. He was also found to have a fake Maryland driver’s license with the birth date changed to 1994.
...and more often a sign of drunken stupidity. At least an 18 year old young adult got arrested for drinking, which should make Matt Hayek and Rick Dobyns happy.

I like to think my yard looks nicer than the mayor's.

I certainly hope no one named Taylor, Cole, Jim or John Thomas gets drunk. (And that's Pauline Taylor, not Taylor Swift.)

Yo Dobyns I'm happy for you, and I'mma let you finish, but Pauline Taylor has one of the greatest campaigns of ALL TIME.

Yeah, If it weren't for that copyright thing, and campaign finance law, I'd print a bunch of these up...

Better advice: if you live on a bar crawl or game day route like I do, it's a good idea to bring those signs in on a Saturday night. The home football game, three days before the election, on Halloween yet, likely to do serious damage to Iowa City yard signs.

So when you hear the paranoid wailing on November 1, remember that the simplest explanation is the most likely, and that haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate.
