Mayor's campaign signs defaced after "scumbag" comment

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

As the Democratic primary election approaches, campaign signs for candidates have appeared all over and some of the signs have had something extra added to them.

The word "scumbag" has appeared on multiple campaign signs for Harrisburg Mayor Linda Thompson in the areas of 25th and Market Streets and along 29th Street.

The term may be a local reaction to Thompson's "scumbag" comment from last week when she referenced a "scumbag that comes from Perry County" during a news conference about recycling initiatives in Harrisburg.

Linda Thompson was elected Harrisburg mayor in 2009 and is now seeking re-election.

Thompson will compete against Dan Miller, Eric Papenfuse and Lewis Butts for the Democratic nomination.

The Democratic primary election is May 21.
