This is a developing story.
The Bucks County Democratic Committee filed a petition to obtain an emergency injunction Wednesday with the Court of Common Pleas pursuant to unauthorized political signage.
Democratic and Republican party officials received notification on October 19 from the Bucks County Board of Elections that the signs are in violation of Pennsylvania Statute, 25 P.S. 3258(a), Elections & Electoral Districts, pertaining to political advertising.
According to the complaint, the injunction would allow for the removal of signs that do not comply with Pennsylvania Statutes governing political advertising.
By law, political signage must contain information stating the candidate or political committee who authorized the signs, the identity of an individual or group responsible for the signs or, in the alternative, who made or financed the signs.
Messaging of the signs include:
– THESE RADICAL DEMOCRATS BRING CHAOS TO CBSD Haring His Fraudulent Lawsuit +50% tax increase for you
– Reynolds Supports Defund the Police & Marxist BLM, Endorsed Young Communist League Riots
– Smith Secretly Filed False Federal Complaint Her $1 Million LIE Covered Up Bullying
– Foley Supports Sexually Graphic Books For Minors Won’t protect GirlsSports/Safe Spaces!
PROTECT OUR CHILDREN VOTE NO TO CHAOS
Another sign reads:
GROOM DOGS NOT KIDS!
SCHOOLS TEACH ACADEMICS NOT PORN
Yet another says:
GROOM DOGS NOT KIDS!
EDUCATION NOT INDOCTRINATION
There are also others that contain derogatory and defamatory statements about the Democratic school board candidates.
“The signs in question amount to libelous attacks against our Democratic candidates for school board in Central Bucks,” said State Sen. Steve Santarsiero, Chair of the Bucks County Democratic Committee. “But that is not the basis for the relief we seek from the court today. We are seeking an injunction to have them removed, because they clearly violate state law, which requires that they contain a disclaimer as to who paid for and authorized the signs. They do not have that.”
Stickers that were placed on the signs after being printed, say “Letsgobrandon.com,” a website containing “decentralized meme cryptocurrency.”
