Democrats are investigating widespread vandalism against pro-Obama signs in Lubbock, Texas.
A picture (seen here) of a bullet-ridden sign which says: â€śLubbock Supports Obama 2012,â€ť was posted by KBLK-TV.
The Lubbock Democrats posted a picture on their Facebook page of another sign with â€śN*GGERâ€ť written on it, reports RawStory.com.
Lubbock Democratic Party chairperson Kenny Ketner said at a press conference Sunday: â€śHundreds of Obama yard signs have been stolen from neighborhoods all across Lubbock. We have had over half a dozen of our large 4Ă—4 and 4Ă—8 signs stolen, vandalized, or shot. And as of about 1 a.m. this morning, we can add hate crime to the list, as two of our 4Ă—4 signs at 26th and University Ave. were vandalized with the n-word written multiple times and mustard sprayed all over the signs.â€ť
On Monday morning, Carl Tepper, head of the local Republican Party, reportedly accused Democrats of vandalizing their own signs during an interview with a local radio station.
