Spray-Painting Politician Convicted

 

 

 

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- A former councilman and one-time mayoral candidate was convicted of spray-painting anti-war slogans on highway overpasses.

 

Mike ****** was found guilty of felony vandalism and possession of criminal tools. He faces up to two years in prison.

 

******, 55, could have agreed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge and avoided trial. But he said he saw the trial as another opportunity to make his case against the war in Iraq.

 

He was arrested in January along Interstate 475 and U.S. 23. The State Highway Patrol said ****** painted the slogan "Troops Out Now" on several overpasses.

 

****** has been a critic of U.S. military action in Iraq and in 2003 took part in a "peace tour" there.

 

He was elected to City Council in 1989 as an independent. In 1993, he ran unsuccessfully for mayor.
