Campaign signs dot the community across the northern suburbs and they will likely be around for the next few months until the 6th Congressional District runoff is complete.
A woman who identified herself as Tamara said her friend filmed the man stealing signs. "He knew he was being filmed and he didn't care," she said.
Tamara said she supports John Ossoff and has been putting his campaign signs across the district.
