Someone egged an Indy man's Donald Trump sign

Posted at 5:58 PM, Nov 11, 2016

INDIANAPOLIS -- An Indianapolis man says he woke up the day after the election to find eggs all over his yard – and his Donald Trump signs.

"I saw one of [the signs] was kind of leaning," David Clifford said. "I went out to look at it, and it looked like maybe one of the eggs hit it and tipped it. Then my daughter said, well Dad here's another one, Dad here's another one."

In all, Clifford thinks the unknown assailants threw as many as a dozen eggs. He found them in his far-southeast side yard and on his vehicle, as well as at a nearby building he owns and on his neighbor's property.

Clifford says he assumes whoever threw the eggs was unhappy with the results of Tuesday's night's election. He's experienced similar vandalism before when someone painted "F--- Trump" on large rocks on his property.

He's not going to stop putting up signs, though.

"No, it didn't discourage me at all," he said.

To whoever threw the eggs at his Trump signs, Clifford had a simple message: Try something more effective.

"I would probably just say, if you want a different result, choose a different candidate," he said. "And it doesn't seem violence has worked. Why don't you choose a different method?"

Nothing else was damaged, and no suspect information was available.
