Sorry for the grainy footage, but I am posting on the fly as this story develops.

I just so happened to be coming home from a night on the town when I noticed someone putting out yard signs in the right-of-way at the intersection of 4th Street and 83rd Avenue.

Upon closer inspection, I noticed the signs were for Scott Wagman. Upon even closer inspection, I noticed that it was Scott Wagman himself illegally placing the yard signs in the right-of-way, a huge violation of city ordinances. Hence this story:

Wagman said his campaign had not intentionally violated city rules.

“We did have some overzealous campaign organizers that didn’t listen to instructions and put them in the right of way,” Wagman said.

Again, I apologize for the grainy footage, but it was the best I could do on the fly. I will try to clean up the video. It’s really only the first few frames in which you see Wagman.

But let Scott deny that it isn’t him on that video. The guy is a flat-out liar.

Update: Here is the Times’ print story on this.
