“Dear PoPville,

My last two visits to the West End branch library have involved secret service and barricades. Apparently, someone who warrants secret service protection has moved into the condos above the library and it is altering use of the library. You no longer can enter the library. You are met on the sidewalk by secret service and staff and assisted there.

Do you know what is going on? Who moved in? Is this permanent or temporary?”

“Dear PoPville,

A crop of new signs popped up on our block today, then we noticed a large pile by the trash on a side street. Are campaign representatives allowed to move other campaign’s signs?”

On Thursday we shared from Attorney General Racine’s office:

Is it legal to destroy election signs in the lead up to the election?

No. It is illegal under District law to intentionally remove, deface, damage, or destroy a lawfully placed billboard, poster, sign or other material relating to a candidate or referendum in the 30 days before the election or up to four days after the election. Read More
