BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- A woman running for local office wants everybody to know she won't steal their money, and that she can count it correctly. So she put it on a billboard.

Ann Collins, who is running for Monroe County Treasurer, put up a billboard with her face on it, along with the words "I won't steal and I know how to count!"

In 2013, Monroe County had issues with the treasurer's books not lining up, according to the Bloomington Herald-Times, which could've prompted the billboard.

The billboard has began to receive national attention, appearing on ABC News and Fusion.
