Peter De Yager doubles down

Man caught stealing a Biden yard sign, then caught stealing newspapers reporting on him stealing the sign.

De Yager had walked in, tucked the store's supply of the newspaper inside one of the area's free publications and left the store, according to store management -- the criminal complaint said the stack of papers was valued at about $20. Management also told the Dickinson County News the store's staff had been wondering why they and a number of other businesses along the area's main highways were suddenly sold out of the Dickinson County News that day. [...]

De Yager's name happened to appear on page 3 of the Sept. 2 edition -- in the police reports. The Hull businessman had been charged with fifth-degree theft and trespassing -- both misdemeanors -- after stealing a political yard sign from a residence in the Monarch Cove area the night of July 26. [...]

De Yager has donated more than $30,000 to various Republican campaigns and political action committees since 2019, according to the Federal Elections Commission, including $20,000 to Iowa Four -- a PAC aimed at unseating U.S. Rep. Steve King in favor of Iowa State Sen. Randy Feentra, who was employed by De Yager's company in the past.

    It’s never the crime, it’s always the coverup.

  3. I somehow got stuck on there being five different degrees of theft. At least five.
