City of Ormond Beach FL War on Ron Paul Yard Signs.Submitted by ibfreeman on Fri, 06/22/2012 - 23:10
I have had a Ron Paul Restore America Now! Yard sign on my property since January. Its been stolen, ripped up thrown in the street etc. I dont get mad I fix it if I can or I replace it.
Today I recieved a certified letter in the mail stating I must remove my sign as the Ron Paul campaign has not posted a $150 bond with the city. They sent a copy of the letter to his campaign headquarters in virginia as well.
I called the city today and offered to pay the $150 to keep my sign up. I was told I cannot pay personaly. The campaign must pay for it. I stated the campaign did not ask me to post the sign in my yard I purchased it and placed it under free will and free speech. I was told I must remove it unless the Ron Paul campaign post $150 bond with the city or face a fine.
Not happy I walked the neighborhood I talked to 3/5 people with Ron Paul Signs. They all got he same letter I did "remove your sign" I found 3 Romney signs I talked to 2/3 and acted like a Romney supporter. They did not get the letter or know what I was talking about.
I told myself I would not take my sign down until after the convention and its still up, But im not sure what can happen if I don't take it down :(
