Earlier, I mentioned the rather odd coincidence that Ann Rivers had suffered hundreds of dollars in damaged and destroyed signs over the Friday - Saturday period in the Hazel Dell/Salmon Creek area.
None of the damaged signs were Anthony Bittner's. All of the damaged signs in that area were co-located with Bittner's.
Anthony was just a bit miffed at me for pointing that out. Having schooled the young man as to what threats would avail him and having pointed out that no campaign or campaign supported by low-level morons who would engage in this type of activity had ever won, I thought that would be the end of it.
Well, guess what. It wasn't.
SOMEONE, and no, I don't know who, sent this picture to KOIN 6,
claiming that the sign damaged was a Bittner sign. That's obviously untrue, but then, the same mentality that could destroy other people's property in the name of a political campaign was, no doubt, similarly responsible for this lie to the media.
I sincerely hope that Bittner had nothing to do with this. But I also know that yesterday, the picture in question was removed from River's facebook account unknown to Rivers.
There is no excuse for this. Certainly, by now, Bittner has contacted KOIN 6 news to correct the story.... right?
