(Newser) – Mischief-makers just can't seem to get enough of "Vote Schmuck" campaign signs—to the great consternation of Frank Schmuck, Republican candidate for the Arizona legislature. The signs are being stolen almost as quickly as supporters can put them up, the Ahwatukee Foothills News reports. "Did someone think it was a joke?" asks a concerned Schmuck.

"I do have a funny last name, but this early in the campaign season?" laments the candidate.
