Campaign sign vandalism makes claims against republican candidate

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Some campaign posters around town are not displaying a message you would expect. How is this affecting the candidates and their party?

Recently, we’ve seen more and more campaign signs popping up and with that, campaign sign vandalism.”

“This is part of every election, the destruction of signs,” said Republican Chairman Sam Ibrahim. “It’s just a part of the process.”

He says you shouldn’t believe what vandals write on the signs. Like the word ‘RINO.’

That’s what someone spray painted onto some of Chuck Kays’ signs. It means “Republican in name only.’ But the doctor running for New Hanover County commission says it’s just wrong.

“It’s really troubling to me that there is a person that feels, just because I may not agree with their position that it entitles them to do that,” Kays said. “I don’t take care of my patients that way, or my relationships that way and you know what, that’s part of the problem with politics.”

Representatives from the New Hanover County GOP say this person is not doing the Republican Party any favors.

The moment they find out any new information on the vandalism they’re going to report it to the authorities.
