If you expected an absentee ballott this week and never got it.....don't worry...it's not lost in the mail.

He calls it a high school senior prank.....police may be calling it a crime. Monroe County Republican Chair, John Christy.
Sparta Police collected eight 4'x8' Scott Walker signs, 21 Walker yard signs, and four fence posts (still attached to the 4x8s) from the front lawn at Sparta Senior High School. Christy says none of the signs said Recall Walker or Vote for Barrett. Christy says with the damage to property, interfering with freedom of speech, and targeting Walker signs only, this is more than a senior prank. He is waiting to see what the school's administration and School Board does before taking further legal actions.
