VOTD: Lubbock Dem Catches Sign Vandals on Tape


by: Shelby Alexander

Sun Oct 28, 2012 at 07:45 PM CDT


This is BOR's Video of the Day, or VOTD, our nightly video clip segment highlighting must-see content. If you like today's video and want more people to see it, share it on Twitter and Facebook!

On Friday, the Texas Democratic Party released footage taken by a Lubbock Democratic Party Volunteer who was harassed by four men who were caught vandalizing Democratic and "Lubbock Supports Obama 2012" signs. This has been a widely reported problem for Obama signs in Lubbock in which racial slurs, graffiti, and other forms of vandalism have been reported of in neighborhoods.

Warning: the video contains inappropriate and racially-charged language.

Watch below:


There has been a great deal of hatred throughout this election, and Republicans have repeatedly refused to address it. We applaud the volunteer for his bravery and the state party for recognizing these issues of hate, while working to promote equality within our communities across Texas.



Check out all of our BOR videos of the day on the VOTD tag.

That volunteer's a brave kid. (0.00 / 0)
I've met that volunteer at the Democratic HQ.  He's a very bright and conscientious young man who was willing to put himself in a dangerous situation to catch these vandals (I'm glad he wasn't hurt). My hat's off to him for filming the crime, and I also applaud the local Democratic party chair, Kenny Ketner, for standing up against the people who condone this kind of vandalism, hate and racist behavior.  It's been pretty toxic up here this fall.

All the better to VOTE DEMOCRATIC and beat the Rethugs at the polls.  We may not win Texas this year, but we can elect Democrats and help in the battleground states. One more week and we can see President Obama reelected.  GET OUT AND VOTE (if you haven't already-I voted last week)!
