FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
VTGOP Chair Paul Dame issued the following video statement regarding video evidence of Mark MacDonald’s Possession of Stolen Property”
“Over a week ago Republican Senate Candidate John Klar went to visit his opponent Mark MacDonald in order to discuss a joint statement asking both supporters to put an end to the theft of yard signs. While at the property John Klar provided video evidence that Mark MacDonald was in possession of Klar’s yard signs. Since Klar did not give a yard sign to MacDonald, the sign in MacDonald’s yard must have been stolen either by MacDonald himself, or by someone else and then given to MacDonald.
Klar’s video can be found here:
We are calling on Sen. MacDonald to explain how John Klar’s sign got onto his property, and whether MacDonald had any intention of returning the sign to either the Klar campaign or the rightful owner.
Sign theft has been a constant complaint of candidates from every party for every office for decades. But never before has there been evidence that a sitting senator himself may have been involved in such a petty activity.
