A Donald Trump banner, as well as Donald Trump yard signs and other Trump-related paraphernalia was stolen from the Illinois Republican Party booth at the Illinois State Fair, Springfield's State Journal-Register reports.
It's State Fair season in Springfield, which means that all of Central Illinois is abuzz with corn dogs, carnival rides, livestock exhibitions, and all of the other sights & sounds that accompany state fairs. And for as long as state fairs have been a thing, politicians have had a presence there, too. The Illinois State Fair is no different: both the Democratic Party and the Republican Party have booths there.
The Illinois Republican Party booth this year is all about Donald Trump. And it seems that someone wasn't particularly happy about that, as it appears that someone broke into the fairgrounds overnight Monday night and made off with some of the booth's Trump-related paraphernalia, said spokesperson Anthony Sarros.
"When we got into the tent, we saw that some things were disheveled, and quickly realized that our Trump yard signs that we had in there were gone."
