A Hamblen County State Representative is trying to figure out who is responsible for defacing 14 of his campaign election signs.
Rep. Don Miller, R-Morristown, is seeking re-election against challenger Tilman Goins for the state's District 10 race.
On Friday, Miller's campaign noticed three of their signs were spray painted with the word "No". Then, on Saturday, they found 11 more who were defaced the same way.
According to Miller, the the damaged signs are worth about $1,400 dollars. He filed a report with the Morristown Police Department, but it has yet to find any suspects.
"I get emails and calls from people letting me know that it's been done," said Miller. "Everybody that I know condemns it."
Miller said he wants his opponent Goins to do everything he can to stop the vandalism. He said he believes one of Goins' supporters may be committing the act.
"I think it's a bad reflection on my opponent and his supporters," Miller said.
But, Goins said his campaign had nothing to do with it.
"I couldn't make an effort to stop what's happening if I don't know who's doing what's happening," he said.
The Morristown Police Department is currently looking at surveillance cameras around Morristown businesses in an effort to find a suspect. A police spokesperson said if the district attorney pursues felony charges, a culprit could face anywhere from 2 to 4 years in prison.
Some Morristown voters told 10News they disapprove of the vandalism.
"I think it should be a fair contest and that is one thing don't do," said Murad Mubarak, who has lived in Morristown for more than 40 years.
As for the 14 signs, Miller said he plans to leave them in the ground so the public can see what happened.
