Those Southern Mississippi boys shore know how to screw up a state!
The new community of Diamondhead is holding its first city election. The law allows political signs to be placed anywhere except city property. But the Diamondhead Property Owners Association doesn’t allow any political signs either. Unless you’re a Republican. Mayoral candidate Carl Necaise put his political signs out in the yards of people who weren’t actually in the POA. And he’s ordered his opponent’s signs removed because they happened to be in the front yards of people who actually are POA members.
The CC&Rs in Diamondhead also prohibit solicitation. Any homeowner who puts out a political sign or goes door-to-door faces a $100 fine.
It sounds like a hundred different variations of ‘illegal.’
But that’s how a political machine operates.
Just grease the skids and git-outa-the-way!
