Sagtikos Parkway sign defaced to read ‘Crooked Hillary’

A sign marking the Crooked Hill Road exit on the Sagtikos Parkway was defaced to read “Crooked Hillary,” officials said.

Photos posted to social media show that someone had altered the green traffic sign to read “Crooked Hillary,” a moniker often used by President Donald Trump during his campaign to refer to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

The sign was reported to the State Department of Transportation Wednesday morning and corrected later that day, according to a DOT spokesman.

“As soon as we were notified about the graffiti yesterday morning, it was removed,” the spokesman said in a statement.“Defacing public signs is illegal.”
