OBSERVATION-Yucca Valley, Ca.-The first signs were defaced along Highway 62 around September 27th. I was careful not to disturb the ground.  The set of footprints were a very large size, maybe 12 or 13 mens and there was only one set of footprints around the defaced signs.

I notified our local newspaper, the Hi-Desert Star, in the event they would run a story on the signs. As of this date, they have never reported on incidents of sign vandalism.

One day before the elections, Paul Cook has not issued any statements to denounce these actions and has remained silent.

The first act of vandalism.  All signs, horizontal or vertical defaced with same message, same colors and message well planned out as to size of letters.

(Cook has since removed his sign from this location shown in this photo)

Third round of vandalism-smaller foot size and a different shoe pattern.  In fact, the footprint in the sand was about the same as my shoe size, Women’s 8 medium.  I also took photographs of the tire marks near one vandalized sign.

Similar messages, sloppy paint dripping.

Smaller footprint left at scene.

Different shoe print pattern.


Note: At this location, two lawn signs placed on ground not defaced, not weathered.
