Politics Gets Nasty in South Bay Neighborhood

Homeowners find "No on 8" spray-painted on garage

The battle over Proposition 8 got ugly again in the South Bay Sunday night with more vandalism as both sides clash prior to Election Day.

A woman who lives on Southgate Court in the Silver Leaf neighborhood in San Jose said she heard noise outside her house just after midnight. She looked outside and saw someone jump in a car and take off.

The woman had "Yes on Prop 8" signs in her yard.  The signs had been damaged and someone had spray-painted her garage with "No on 8."

A neighbor's car was also been tagged with the message "No on 8."

The homeowner called police, who filled out a report but said there's not much they can do about the incidents.

The homeowner described the vehicle as a dark-colored car and said it took off toward Monterey Road.
