Candidate says opponent defaced campaign sign

November 06, 2006|By Justin Fenton | Justin Fenton,SUN REPORTER

A Democratic candidate for the House of Delegates said he has filed a civil complaint against his opponent, the Republican incumbent, alleging that he defaced one of the Democrat's campaign signs and made a false statement to police.

Jack Sturgill, who is running against Del. Richard K. Impallaria in the 7th District, said a supporter had parked a truck - prominently displaying a Sturgill campaign sign - outside of Impallaria's home, where the Republican was holding a rally.

Sturgill, a Glen Arm lawyer, claims that his supporters saw Impallaria affix one of his own signs to the truck. Impallaria could not be reached for comment.
