DEFEND THE SIGNSJust so you know, D.C. Advisory Neighborhood Commission candidate Grace Daughtridge is NOT MESSING AROUND. Not only has she “reestablished” the 11th-largest tree in the District, but she was at a polling place today, and saw a dude futzing with one of her campaign signs, and, if the allegedlies have it right, she took that dude out.

NBC Washington brings us the nitty-gritty:

Grace Daughtridge allegedly tackled a man in his 40s outside the King Greenleaf Recreation Center in Southwest around 11:15 a.m., claiming he was tampering with some of her campaign signs.

Wham-bam! It’s just like how she says she’s been “preventing thieves from stealing rims and tires”!

She takes this stuff serious-like. But this sign stuff… maybe… too serious-like?

A police report claims that she continued to yell homophobic slurs at the man as he entered the recreation center.

Hm. Yes. Probably. And it’s weird, because it sounds nothing like the lady portrayed in this community blog post, about bike lanes:

Then there were the people who just don’t like cyclists. One particularly angry woman [update: the elected First District Ward Six Rep for the South West Neighborhood Assembly Grace E. Daughtridge] asked “Who are these bike lanes for? Who uses a bike to drop off their kids at school? Who brings home groceries for a family of four on a bicycle?”

After each question several hands went up, to which she responded sarcastically each time “Congratulations, you must be real proud of yourself” and adding after the school question “You’re an irresponsible parent.”

Somebody should probably go back and check to see if that guy was tampering with signs, or if Daughtridge was just running around tackling people. [NBC 4]

    Obviously this happening more often would make awesomely hilarious snark fodder.

  • WhatTheHolyHeck

    But it's that nice NBP guy holding the door who's the real threat.

    Why do gay Black Panther sign thieves hate America?

    • SmutBoffin

      Have you heard? There is also a threatening black man loitering on the ballot!

        I imagine the Onion guys are just phoning it in now. Reality is kicking their asses for sheer volume of comedy production.

    Afternoon, reprobates. Hope all you fine people have/are going to vote!

    News from here is that even the conservatives want Bammaz to win.

    Let's hope today sees Romney skullfucked into history by votes.

    I love DC. People away from this area forget that it's a real town and has more to it than Capitol Hill and K Street.

  • Hey, wow, they take this candidate electioneering shit pretty seriously in them parts, huh? (Scans list of places to visit, eliminates Daughtridge's entire state)

  • I_P

    Well, just got in from my all-days. Did Fox declare Romney the winner yet?

    • Monsieur_Grumpe

      I'm not turning FOX on till Hopey is declared the winner so I can see their newly indignant sad faces.

    I'm pretty sure I dated her.

  • clecinosu

    Nice lady. She probably spent the morning kicking down her opponent's signs.

  • BadKitty904

    So, per the NYT election map thingy, New Hampshire has begun to report results?

    • Crank_Tango

      Mind. Blown.
      edit: OMG!! My p-ness just grew!!

  • "Homophobic slurs"? They can't be more specific?

  • tracyhasfun

    The problem with mail-in ballots is that I have spent the whole day feeling like I forgot something. Plus, no sticker.

  • SorosBot

    So she thinks that no one with kids uses bikes; and apparently that the city should only provide infrastructure for families with kids. Lovely lady.

  • tessiee

    Of possible interest, from an acquaintance's comment thread on facebook:

    "The London bookies have St. Barry as a 1-4 to 1-5 favorite; on Rmoney, it's three to one against."

    "Bookies are always right. Money has a way of clearing out the bullshit fog."

    "No guarantees, but they play the probabilities. And mostly make money."

    I thought it was an interesting observation.

  • elfgoldsackring

    What's she doing with campaign signs outside a polling place on election day? Is that legal where y'all are?

  • Sign stealing guy was lucky he wasn't riding a bike.

  • DixvilleCrotch

    Did animated gif chick actually survive that tackle? o_O

    I guess that's some special effects wizardry right there.

  • HogeyeGrex

    Needs moar shit-moat.

  • ttommyunger
