QPD: 'Unusual possible petty larceny'

The "pilfered posters" caper is getting some play in Newsday today, and what has up to now been a lively and interesting campaign, is now turning dark and ugly with a week to go before the election.

 

Why?

The personalities involved... Incumbent South­ampton Town Supervisor Patrick "Skip" Heaney and Republican Linda Kabot/former Supervisor Vincent Cannuscio (that's "1" and "1A")... for the first time in years are feeling seriously threatened, and when that happens, people tend to get stupid.

The five Town Council candidates have com­mendably stayed pretty much above the seamier side of the fray, and former Town Board member Jim Drew has got to be wondering why he allowed himself to get drafted for another run.

Campaign posters? A blight on the eye; streetside "spam." They should ALL be banned.

BANNED!?! They can't even really be regulated! The Supremes… and we're not talking Diana Ross, Florence Ballard and Mary Wilson here… long ago ruled that political signs are protected under the First Amendment.

Then no one can whine about them. Keep those local radio station ads from getting loud, smarmy and ugly too.

There should be a time frame on when these posters are taken down. If not done in a timely fashion fines should be handed out.
