'No Dicks' sign offends Manette resident

A 48-year-old Manette resident called police Saturday after noticing a modified Norm Dicks campaign sign on Scott Avenue, offended by its "sexual nature."

The man told police he saw a defaced campaign sign for the congressional Democrat from Belfair posted outside a house in the 1100 block of Scott Avenue and took umbrage with its message, according to police reports. Officers arrived at the residence to find part of Dicks' name covered in tape so the sign read, "No Dicks." The slogan, "He works for jobs," was changed to, "He works for pork." The man told police the message was too suggestive.

Police were unable to contact the owners of the residence and entered photos of the sign into evidence.

Dicks was entered on the report as the victim. His address was listed as 345 Sixth Street in Bremerton, the Norm Dicks Government Center. According to the report, the congressman resides in apartment 500 of the building.
