Vanload of thieves snatching Djou signs inside of four hours

From Djou Campaign:

We are now less than a month away from ballots being mailed.  We are working very hard, and thanks to all of you, who have given your time and your financial resources, and are reaching out to your family and friends, we have a real chance of winning this seat for the people of Hawaii.

Our hard work and success in reaching others with our message of fiscal responsibility and government accountability, however, has made us a threat to all those who benefit from the status quo.

An indication that our campaign is a threat to the status quo is the number of yard signs stolen on a regular basis.  We know that it happens in every election, but the rate that our signs are stolen surpasses anything we have ever seen before.  In some areas, we will put up a yard sign and the sign will be taken in a matter of hours.  One of our supporters reported last week that she was in her yard when a white van drove up to her house.  A man jumped out of the van and pulled her yard sign out from where it was planted in her yard.  When she asked him what he was doing, he said that he was from the Djou campaign and that the sign was needed in another location.  This was completely untrue - the campaign never relocates signs to "better" locations.  We value every single person willing to indicate their support for Charles with a yard sign.

I encourage you to let us know immediately if your yard sign is taken.  The only way to fight back is to keep putting the signs back up when they are stolen. Better yet, if you have a camera phone on you, take a photo of the person or persons, as they are stealing the signs, or take a photo of their vehicle license plate.

Despite all of this negativity, we will continue to run a positive campaign based on the simple message that it is more important to elect a Congressman who will fight to lower your taxes and let you keep your money than elect a Congressman who wants to spend all of your money.  Our opponents' allies and their political machine, however, are far more interested in power than principles and will not stop at stooping to any new low to win at any cost.

Crooked mainland-style campaigning has no place in our democracy.

It is truly sad that some feel so threatened by our campaign that they would resort to lies, misrepresentations, and outright theft.  But, if we stand by and do nothing, then they win.  We must stay focused.  This is too important to our State and our Nation.

Mahalo!
