Henrico Sheriff: Sign Complaints Bogus



Henrico County Sheriff Michael Wade says he put up McCain signs in the Fairfield District from 8:30 p.m. Monday until 2:30 a.m. Tuesday mornnig, but did so in plain clothes -- jeans and a blazer -- and while driving his personal vehicle.

He says concerns from the Obama campaign that he may have intimidated some voters is bunk.
Wade says he was off duty, and returned today at about noon to repost signs at one voting precinct, at Laburnum Avenue and Harvie Road, where the signs had been knocked over.

“I'm just doing my duty as [Henrico County Republican Committee] chairman,” he says. “I didn't intimidate anybody. It's bullshit. That's spelled B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T. I never spoke to anybody there.” -- Scott Bass
