TEXAS–(ENEWSPF)–November 4, 2016
At a northern Texas polling site, a sign that directed people to a polling place was covered with a Trump-Pence sign. Pretty lame and pretty predictable, frankly. Unfortunately, what wasn’t predictable was how dumb and lame and dangerous this sign actually was.
Just before sunrise at Collin County College a precinct official ordered the sign removed, and a volunteer who was taking it down cut their hands on the box cutter blades that were attached to the bottom of the sign.
“It’s terrible we’ve become so polarized in our politics,” says Steve Spainhouer, the democratic chair in Collin County Precinct 122. “I think it’s deplorable it just shows how far we’ve come in politics where people want to be so mean, so hateful to try and injure somebody who’s probably got no political party persuasion one way or another and is just working at a poll.” He says it’s the worst campaign related crime he’s seen in his 16 years.
Here is the tweet sent out by CBS 11 news showing the damage done.

The injuries were minor but the act is perfectly stupid and dangerous in a way that is unnerving to many.
The incident was reported to campus police and the Texas rangers for investigation, and the sign has been seized by authorities. At this point no one has been questioned or arrested.
I guess this is an attempt to stop Democrats from voting or something. Pathetic.
