Down in Texas, someone put razor blades on a Donald Trump campaign sign, and a volunteer was cut while trying to move the sign.
According to KDFW, someone glued eight razor blades on the bottom of a Trump-Pence campaign sign and then used the sign to cover up a "Vote Here" sign at a polling location at Collin County College, which is near Dallas. Because the sign was blocking the official polling site sign, an election worker tried to re-position the sign, which left him bleeding. CBS News reported the cuts were minor—though they did draw blood—so the volunteer didn't seek medical attention.
Collin County Republican Party Executive Director Neil Katz told KDFW: "They were placed in front of a vote sign, so someone would have to move it. It's obvious intent was for someone to get cut."
The incident was reported to campus police and the Texas rangers, but so far no arrests have been made. There are no security cameras in the area, so nothing was caught on tape.
While you're not allowed to cover official polling signs, it is legal to put signs up in front of polling sites, as long as they're a certain distance away. Because of this, it's not perfectly clear what crime was committed. It could be considered tampering or even possibly criminal mischief, according to WFAA.
Bruce Sherbet, the Collin County Elections Administrator, told KDFW: "It wasn't a prank as far as it looked to me it looks like something intentional to hurt somebody. These things on the surface look one way, but you can’t jump to conclusions, which is why they need to be investigated thoroughly."
Collin County Democratic Party chair Mike Rawlins said, "It’s kind of a new low for someone to actually do it, not to mention doing it on public property at a polling place."
Another Democrat, Steve Spainhouer, told CBS News: "I think it’s deplorable. It just shows how far we’ve come in politics where people want to be so mean, so hateful to try and injure somebody who’s probably got no political party persuasion one way or another and is just working at a poll."
