Couple sends bold message after Obama yard signs stolen

Couple sends bold message after Obama yard signs stolen

Posted: Updated:

An Orlando couple is making a bold statement, after their campaign signs supporting President Obama were stolen from their front yard multiple times.  

"When you steal our signs, we're going get other signs, we're going donate more to Obama, he's going get more money, and he's going get elected," said Mark Paul Pierpont.

After their signs were stolen, not once, but twice, Nick Massoni and his husband Mark got fed up and fired back with a sign of their own.  It reads, "You stole our Obama sign, we bought another sign, Obama campaign gets more money."

"We wanted to let them know that trying to bully someone just by taking their signs, it doesn't make it go away, it means that we're going to go back to the headquarters, we're going to spend more money, we're going to buy more signs, which is going to give the Obama campaign more money," Massoni said.

They believe the sign thieves strike at night, so they even attached a motion sensor light to the sign to keep it extra secure.

"When you come up to the sign, it's a motion sensor light that pops," Pierpont said.

The couple says while they're neighborhood is predominantly plastered with Romney yard signs, their authentic sign has been a big hit among neighbors who can't help but notice.

"I think people appreciate that, that you're that passionate about the election which we are," Massoni said.

So far, their sign seems to be working.  They say, since they put about a week ago, their Obama signs haven't  been stolen.

"Coming down the street, consistently people are slowing down reading the sign, and then neighbors walking, which says to me that this actually has increased the impact of our Obama statement," Pierpont said.
