A beautiful day for fixing yard signs


I got asked, so what happens if Mayor Jeff Scrima’s campaign doesn’t follow your advice? So far, the yard signs remain untouched and without disclaimers, they tell me.

Anyone can file a complaint. It doesn’t have to be the campaign. The phone number for Waukesha District Attorney Brad Schimel’s office is 262-548-7076. And, I realize it is about Jeff Scrima, but don’t make the mistake of calling the juvenile crime division. Or you can send an email (preferably with a picture) to WaukeshaCountyDA@da.wi.gov. Hopefully Schimel won’t be on vacation again and he’ll get back to you. There’s certainly precedent that Schimel can follow for enforcing the state election law regarding disclaimer on campaign materials.

Just don’t uproot a sign from somebody’s lawn and take it to the courthouse to show it to Schimel in person. (But if there’s one in a median somewhere…)

By the way, does anyone know why Sunset Bank is supporting Mayor Jeff Scrima? I understand some small businesses taking a side, but it really would make me, as a potential customer, question why a bank is picking a side in a political campaign by putting a dozen yard signs out front.
