Scott Jacobs’ campaign has a troubling pattern when it comes to campaign signs in the race for Brentsville District Supervisor in Prince William County – troubling in that they seem to be unable to adhere to even the most basic of state laws and county ordinances.
First, they were putting up signs illegally outside the 90-day window before an election because a date for the nomination contest had not yet been set (not to mention doing so in the VDOT right of way where no signs are permitted). Strike one.
Next, they’ve been putting up signs without the requisite “paid for” disclaimer. Strike two.
Here is one near Sudley Manor / Vint Hill Road:
And here are some near Patriot High School:
Finally, the Jacobs’ campaign has resorted to stealing Jeanine Lawson’s campaign signs and then coming back to put Jacobs signs in their place.
Take note of the Jacobs bumper sticker on the rear window of this person’s car. Strike three.
So you have a Jacobs campaign supporter committing simple larceny (which is punishable as a Class 1 misdemeanor carrying a penalty of confinement in jail for not more than twelve months and a fine of not more than $2,500, either or both).
