Candidate Sign In Disrespectful Location

Update to the Update: 5thdistrez (we know who you really are) sent a question, however because of the language used in asking the question, we can not post it in the manner that it was sent, due to site rules. However, it asked if Brian's Blog called or emailed the candidate. No we did not. We posted it and the candidate or their campaign staff recognized that they were wrong and they moved to sign to the other side of the road. Thanks for asking and tone down your rhetoric and language in the future. This is a family friendly blog.

Update January 15, 2008 7:17 a.m.:The sign in question was removed within 12 hours. Thank you. There have been a couple of campaign people asking if it is their sign at _________ intersection. The candidate in question has done the right thing.

Original Post January 14, 2008 5:17 p.m. There is a busy intersection in West Knox County where there is a road side memorial for a young lady that lost her life one evening. One candidate has their sign in the right of way at this memorial. That is the most disrespectful action that I have ever seen. I have talked with the land owner of the property and he has not given permission for the yard sign to be placed there and he also feels it is disrespectful to the grief stricken family. He has continued to respect the families make shift roadside memorial.

I am going to give this candidate 24 hours to remove the sign after that I will post a photograph of the candidates sign with the road side memorial.
