A bit of Griswold irony

A commenter named "Mesa" hit the nail on the head:

"I find it interesting that Rex Griswold chimed in about the length of time a roadside memorial can stay up and then decides to put his campaign signs up so they can sit there on the corner for 5 months. Typical for someone in the City of Mesa to do something like that and I'd love to hear what he would say about it now after his signs started popping up."

You got to hand it to the guy. He can advocate for the removal of roadside memorials and then without batting an eye, put his campaign signs up a week later. You stay classy, Rex Griswold.

Now, we are stuck seeing his smiling face up there for the next few months, but thank heavens those memorials will be removed! Personally, I think that the inevitable blackened out teeth and arrows drawn through Griswold's head are going to be much more distracting.

Hallelujah. I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed this. I thought, gee, isn't it a bit early for those signs to go up?

Campaign signs whereas not appealing do have a set legally alotted time to be up and those running have to adhere to this. Memorials along the roadside do not have such restrictions in either quantity of memorials, size or length of time allowed to be erected. I can think of more respectful ways to memorialize my lost ones...streams, wooden crosses and electrically non naturally colored flowers do not fall into that category.
