Someone for Marilyn Reid's party just put one of their cheesy plastic signs in my yard without asking me first. I am a registered democrat, and I wouldn't vote for a Republican for a million dollars. As soon as I saw the sign, I guessed she was a republican. There should be a law against such smarmy tactics!
