Additional details to come
The office of State Representative Bob Steinburg says it has located the man who was observed and photographed while uprooting and disposing of Clark Twiddy campaign signs by a Sentinel employee on March 30 in the Nags Head Acres area. Nags Head police also confirm that the individual has been identified.
A post on Steinburg’s Facebook page described the person as a man who neither supports him nor his opponent, Twiddy, in the GOP primary race for the N.C. Senate District 1 seat. The man’s identity is not revealed in this post, which says that his motive for removing the signs is that “he is a liberal who opposes the number of campaign signs in the area.”
The Twiddy campaign had filed a complaint about the incident with the Nags Head Police Department, which has been working on the case. Chief Kevin Brinkley confirmed with the Sentinel on April 7 that the man has been identified and that the Twiddy campaign is not pressing charges. More information, as well as the man’s identity, will be available soon.
