But we're supposed to put our trust in them...

"It was a lapse in judgement" Georgetown Co. official resigns following defaced Trump sign

Quote:
Dean Smith, the former chairman of the Georgetown County Board of Elections resigned Wednesday afternoon after he was identified as the offender on an incident report regarding defaced and stolen Trump campaign signs.

In his resignation letter that he read at the board of elections meeting on Wednesday, he said:

Quote:
"I regret that a brief lapse in judgment on my part might become a distraction to the conduct of this very important election.
Therefore, I hereby resign from this Board effective immediately.
It has been honor and a privelage to work with all of you.
I am very proud of the 15 years I have been involved in Georgetown County elections and am sorry it has to end like this.
Thank you.
Karol Anderson, the Chairman of the Georgetown County Republican Party said a volunteer told her that the Trump campaign signs he put up kept getting defaced or removed.

“He took 20-50 signs and started putting them up on the Waccamaw neck, and they either got gone or defaced or something, he came back got some more and the same thing happened,” Anderson said.

That's when Anderson said that person purchased a camera to see who was removing the signs and/or destroying them.

“He legally put it up and was just trying to see what was happening to the signs and so these pictures showed up, and he thought he recognized who it was, and he sent me the pictures. I tried to find out who it was and had several people call and identity them,” Anderson said.

Anderson said she received several calls from people saying they had concerns with voting in Georgetown County after seeing these pictures, so she filed an incident report.

“They were just concerned about the election process so that's when I filed the report,” Anderson said. With that position or any position of authority, you should try to be as non-partisan publically as you can.”

Anderson said the signs are not cheap and candidates should have a reasonable expectation that the signs they put up won't be removed or defaced.
