Sign of a battle



Becknersign_2Political season always generates tales of stolen or illegal campaign signs. But here's an interesting twist: Seems a Brian Blair supporter simply covered up a Kevin Beckner sign on Hillsborough Avenue with one promoting Blair. Beckner, a Democrat who is challenging the Republican incumbent's County Commission seat, filed an incident report with Tampa police. Beckner's consultant Mitch Kates dubbed the move a "sign of desperation."
