Ohio men videotaped vandalizing and urinating on Bush/Cheney sign

Two men who ripped down and urinated on a Bush/Cheney campaign sign were caught on tape -- literally -- Friday morning.

The videotape shows the men sneaking into the yard of a West Market Street home and bending the sign to the ground. The men struggled to rip the sign out of the ground by shaking it and pulling it but couldn't get it off the posts, so they knocked it down. Sounds heard on the tape suggest the men urinated on the sign. They were white males, about 30 to 35 years old, well-dressed and well-groomed. They parked across the street in what police think was a foreign car, a Toyota or Honda.

The homeowner, Steve Kotsatos, who is also assistant to the director of the Summit County Board of Elections, called Akron police dispatchers at 10:38 a.m. Friday and told them about how his campaign sign was vandalized.

He said he caught the vandals on a night-vision camera he had installed the day before.

The large 4-by-8-foot, red, white and blue sign was tipped over in Kotsatos' yard about 1 a.m. Friday.

John Kerry's name was scrawled across Bush's name in black marker on one side of the sign -- the work of previous vandals, Kotsatos said.

The vandalizing video of the "wanted water-makers" is available on the web (.MOV) for your sampling.

They think their making an impact for Kerry, but their only denigrating his name and theirs...and their cowards to do this at night. This must be commonplace in the area since the homeowner placed a camera on it.

Another great campaign ad for John Kerry!
