Once they leave it on public property it is then considered abandon, thus not stealing. It must be more then 25 feet from a public right-of-way as well (most are right next to a sidewalk). City code Section 28-111, Article IV. The city spends thousands of tax payers dollars every year to remove these signs.

Again, I did. It is my neighborhood, that they are littering with the signs (along with those massage, and "we buy junk homes/cars"). It is just if you were picking up trash on the side of the road.

Default Like junk mail,

These signs are just pollution near the roadway.
Amusingly, I have witnessed this same type of dirty politicking happen years ago on San Antonio's north side. A low life type is simply paid a few dollars to go and vandalize these illegal postings. Vandalism? Good riddance I say.

The one candidate that I recall off the top of my head with lots of signs cut in half is Massarat Ali's signs. While I do not plan on voting for him (primarily because of his strong anti-toll road position), and I definitely *hate* the proliferation of campaign sign spammage, vandalism of one candidate's signs is just plain dirty pool. Anyone else noticing lots of slashed signs, or am I just imagining things?

I was cruising down 35 earlier today and I happened to see a campaign sign with the candidate's name in very bold gold {?} letters except that this one happened to have the first 5 letters of his printed last name masked-over by 4 fat, ragged, black graffiti letters that, with the printed letters, collectively-read: F***OFF
