Democrat Alex Sink volunteer Michael @mpwmcfly stole Republican David Jolly‘s campaign sign from a yard in Florida.
Michael was so proud of himself that he tweeted it out on the internet.
“Just stole a David Jolly sign b/c yolo. Vote Sink ((This is a little bit illegal.))
FYI: ‘yolo’ means “you only live once”
It looks like Michael made a big stupid mistake.

In Florida stealing a political sign is considered petty theft, a misdemeanor. It can land you in jail and a $1,000 fine.
UPDATE: Michael has deleted his Twitter account.
