The following Press Release was sent out by the Ed Humphreys for Governor campaign. Note: Press Releases sent out by candidates do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of those at the Idaho Dispatch.
The Ed Humphreys campaign was maliciously targeted by vandals who slashed Mr. Humphreys’ face on signs and banners. All of these crimes were committed late Saturday evening in close proximity to the candidate’s family home at a time when he is currently grieving the unexpected loss of his mother. No other campaign signs in the vicinity were touched.
In a statement, Ed Humphreys said, “I will not be bullied into silence and I intend to continue with my campaign for Governor of Idaho.”
People who revere freedom hold the election process sacred. Displaying campaign signs and banners is a vital part of a free election and a form of free speech. There is no place for this kind of hate in Idaho.
A police report has been filed with the Ada County Sheriff’s office.
