SEATTLE — A yard sign supporting a Seattle City Council candidate was spray-painted with a racial slur.
The Seattle Times reports Shaun Scott campaign aide Enrico Doan wrote Tuesday on Twitter about his yard sign being defaced and the candidate shared a photo. The sign, with a photo of the black candidate, was covered in spray paint with a four-letter word and a racial slur against black people.
“People just need to understand that these things are things that happen in liberal Seattle … and that things like this have happened somewhat regularly on the campaign trail,” he said in an interview Wednesday.
My default position on these “crises” is that they are fake. A betting man has the odds on his side.
So, prove me wrong.
