These Trump supporters may be taking it a little too far. A Texas poll volunteer was viciously cut while trying to remove a Donald Trump campaign sign that was unknowingly rigged with eight razor blades glued to the bottom of the sign.
The rigged board was covering up a “Vote Here” sign at a polling location at Collin County College near Dallas. Allegedly, this is not the first time someone has blocked the official polling site sign but this one takes the cake.
CBS News reported, “the cuts were minor, though they did draw blood, so the volunteer didn’t seek medical attention.”

Neil Katz, the Collin County Republican Party Executive Director told KDFW, “they were placed in front of a vote sign, so someone would have to move it. It’s obvious intent was for someone to get cut.”

Shockingly, there were no cameras in the area, which means nothing was caught on tape. No arrest have been made so far, according to the campus police and the Texas rangers. Although it may not be illegal to put up signs in front of a polling sight, the law is that the sign’s must be a certain distance away. This crime could be considered tampering or even possibly criminal mischief, according to WFAA
Bruce Sherbet, the Collin County Elections Administrator, told KDFW, “it wasn’t a prank as far as it looked to me it looks like something intentional to hurt somebody. These things on the surface look one way, but you can’t jump to conclusions, which is why they need to be investigated thoroughly.”
