Republicans are calling foul!
Mitt Romney supporters say several yards signs -- maybe as many as 50 -- have been stolen from in front of homes in the Gleneagle area of Northern El Paso County.
They didn't catch the thieves, but neighbors did file a police report. Now neighbor Jack Beuse is getting new signs for himself and his neighbors.
"It's unfortunate, there's no room for it, we all have differing opinions; I'd like to be able to show my opinion by my yard sign." says Beuse, a concerned voter.
"You're not going to convince someone to vote for your candidate by stealing the other's sign; it doesn't make any sense and we've had a lot of signs stolen," says Christy Le Lait, executive director of El Paso County Democrats.
The Democrats say they've had several signs stolen as well.
It can be a 750 dollar fine to remove someone's yard sign without permission.
