I'll admit the picture is taken from a little bit too far away, but if you look closely, you can see them.
For those of you who aren't familiar with the Downtown area, you are looking at the Harris County Jury Assembly Building, which, obviously, is government-owned property.
If you look closely, in the circular "step paths" in the bottom right and bottom left corners there are campaign signs posted in those circles. Having campaign literature and campaign signs on government property is illegal.
The candidate who had signs placed there? Patricia Lykos, of course.
I have heard from multiple sources that Lykos' General Counsel John Barnhill informed our beloved District Attorney of the signs' presence this morning and of the fact that their presence was illegal. My sources inform me that Lykos' response was (no, I'm not kidding):
"What the f*ck do I care? I didn't put them there. Let someone else deal with it."Well, I have to give Lykos credit for consistency. I think that was pretty much her stance when told that DIVERT was illegal, too.
