Dirty Campaign Tricks Captured on Video

[VIDEO] You may have seen this posted at Concerned Citizens of Chatham FB page. It was posted over at NBC Chicago's Ward Room last night.
The images seen in video posted to the Internet are grainy, but there's little doubt as to what it shows: someone stealing a campaign sign for candidate Roderick Sawyer.

Sawyer sent the video to NBC Chicago and said it shows a thief stealing a sign outside former Sen. Roland Burris' home and then taking off.
It starts off with the notion that "someone is playing dirty in the 6th ward". There have been accusation of sign thefts from both sides. In the case of this sign, well, Sawyer's campaign is accusing the Lyle campaign. However, that remains to be proven at this time.

Also from Ward Room, the 6th is one of five run offs to watch:
6th Ward: As one son of a former mayor leaves office, another is trying to step in: Roderick Sawyer, whose father was Interim Mayor Eugene Sawyer, is challenging Ald. Freddrenna Lyle, who was appointed by Mayor Daley in 1998. Sawyer says Lyle has neglected economic development in the ward, which includes the middle-class and lower-class communities of Park Manor, Chatham and Englewood. Lyle has the support of both Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel and Ald. Edward Burke.
Election day is April 5th for the Aldermanic run offs from 6 AM to 7 PM. Will you be at the polls on that day?
