Selling Yourself For Friends

Selling your signs? Sweatshirts, t-shirts, I understand those are marketable. However, free yard sign distribution is tradition. This is both arrogant and ridiculous. Obviously, committed voters are the lone lawn sign advocates. With that stated, this policy screams Queen Anne.

From Bill Bryant’s Blog:

In an interesting twist… Republican candidate for governor, former Congresswoman Anne Northup is now selling yard signs on her website. Northup’s camp is charging $9.95 for a Northup-Hoover sign that could adorn your yard. It’s not unheard of for campaigns to sell merchandise these days… such as sweatshirts, caps, etc… in fact, it’s technically illegal to give away items of that much value… because it can be construed as vote buying. But signs? That seems to be a new one in a Kentucky governor’s race. Ted Jackson’s Spalding group has sold signs in other campaigns including President Bush’s… right now they’re also offering up Rudy Guilliani material.
