While going to and from the grocery store today, I saw something that is blatantly unethical and dirty by the Kasim Reed campaign. The low photo resolution is from my phone's older camera; however, the implication should be obvious. (My apologies for a finger being partly in one of the shots.)
Mr. Reed's campaign is so desperate that they have resorted to blocking the view of Mary Norwood's campaign signs by placing their own signs directly in front. This is despicable behavior from someone running for public office. I have not seen this tactic in a great many years, even through the two hotly contested W. campaigns for President. I'm utterly disgusted.
For the instances documented here in photos, all located in the strip of I-20 westbound between Bill Kennedy Way and Capitol Avenue, I was kind enough to move the signs so as to be positioned side-by-side. However, should I see any instances of this again prior to the election on Tuesday, I shall be photographing them for posting online, and pulling the offending signs entirely.
Shame on you, Mr. Reed. Please get your campaign workers out to fix these horrible, disgraceful, and despicable acts by your campaign or its supporters.
