Nonini Complains About Stolen Signs

State Sen. Bob Nonini, R-Coeur d'Alene, and his wife, Cathyanne, reported to the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office that 50 to 60 of their political yard signs are missing. The Noninis made the report to Deputy Fanciullo that the signs, both 2-by-2 ones (valued at $6.50 apiece) and larger ones (valued at $25) have been disappearing recently. According to the deputy's report, the Noninis have no idea who has been stealing the signs, but they believe it may be one individual or an organized group. Later, Ann Seddon, a friend of the Noninis, contacted the deputy to say that she found a pile of election signs at Kidd Island Road and Weniger Hill Road, along the north shoulder. The deputy found five yard signs when he arrived at the location -- one belonging to Nonini and the others to Marc Eberlein (commissioner candidate), David Stewart (commissioner candidate), Congressman Raul Labrador, and state Rep. Ron Mendive. All Republican candidates. The deputy examined the signs for fingerprints but couldn't find any. Seddon was given permission by the Noninis to put the signs back up.

Question: Can you remember a campaign in which no political yard signs were stolen?
