Yes on 2 group reports vandalism, assault



The groups campaigning for the constitutional ban on gay marriage report in a letter to supporters today that their signs are being stolen in front of private homes and offices. And they say a campaign volunteer handing out fliers urging people to vote for Amendment 2 was "spit on" and "assaulted" last night at the Obama rally in Kissimmee, reported attorney John Stemberger, who runs the campaign.

"A Fort Lauderdale pastor reported that he and his son where placing yard signs and opponents were coming right behind him and stealing them while he was watching them.  When the pastor went to approach the man, he openly mocked him and gave him the finger.  The signs outside our own office headquarters have been replaced 3 times now," Stemberger wrote.
