Scott Wagner is always watching you…at least when you’re near his office.
According to Christian Alexandersen of the Patriot-News, two iPhone video cameras now survey the posters outside of Sen. Scott Wagner’s Capitol office in Harrisburg.
Wagner, a Republican from York who represents PA’s 28th Senate District, is known in Harrisburg for his posters that poke fun at political opponents. The artwork currently on display depicts Gov. Tom Wolf as the Kool-Aid man.
According to Wagner’s Chief of Staff Jason High, the signs have been the target of repeated acts of vandalism or theft.
“We’d find it laying on the floor, we’d find them in the corner,” High said. “People were just walking by and smacking it. Scott complained and this was the solution.”
Even so, High said that the staff did not resort to camera use until Wagner’s office door was taken off its hinges.
High believes that the cameras, which are iphones, were installed about 30 days ago. He said that during that time, there have not been any acts of vandalism to the Senator’s office, but he did not identify the cameras as the causal factor.
“We actually haven’t had any problems in a while,” High said. “My understanding is that they’re actually not going to be up for a whole lot longer.”
