Sign. Sign. Everywhere A Sign

A bunch of signs have popped up promoting the two sales tax initiatives on the Nov 4th ballot.  One side of the sign promotes the Parks and Pipes and the other side promotes the Pavement.

These signs are perfect examples of our First Amendment right to speak our minds on issues.  Heck, if it wasn't for the First Amendment this blog might not even exist.

What bothers me about the signs is that nowhere is there an indication of who paid for/sponsored these signs.  Now, here in Kansas there is a quirk in campaign laws.  Yard signs seem to fall into the same category as pencils, bumper stickers and certain other items (trinkets) that do not require identification of the person or group paying for them.

Personally though, I think that is a bunch of nonsense.  If you're willing to spend your money to create and place these signs, you should have the intestinal fortitude to let folks know who you are.
I have my suspicions, but without proof I can't say.  Oh well...........cowards in the night.
