Dorn Reports Campaign Signs Being Destroyed
web posted September 6, 2012
EDGEFIELD – District 1 County Councilman
Norman Dorn called the Sheriff's Office on Tuesday to report a number
of his campaign sings are being vandalized, damaged, and even "thrown
in the woods". Dorn noted that his opponent's signs "have not been
touched", the report stated.
According to the incident report, Dorn claimed the damaged signs were
on Highway 378 area and Pleasant Lane Road. He did not give a number as
to how many signs nor a value.
Dorn said that state workers cutting grass ran over some of the signs,
some were just "run over" or moved, and others were "thrown in the
Dorn's opponent, William "Bill" Smith, had the following to say after
being advised of Dorn's report. "Earlier, my campaign received word
that a report had been filed with the Edgefield County Sheriff’s Office
pertaining to my opponent’s campaign signs being vandalized or stolen.
Even though Mr. Dorn is my opponent, he has the right to run a campaign
that is free from this type of behavior. I suggest anyone who has
knowledge of who is responsible for this senselessness to contact the
Edgefield County Sheriff’s Department."
Smith said he has had between 30 to 50 signs stolen or destroyed during
his campaign but has not reported them. He considered it "just part of
the process" in running a campaign saying it is to be expected.
