Democrat Virginia Del. Chris Hurst was pulled over by a Radford City Police officer less than 24 hours before Election Day for “tampering” with a polling site.
The police released bodycam footage showing the officer questioning the Democratic candidate for resorting to “poor” tactics “instead of doing a fair election.”
“Want to explain your actions?” the officer asked.
“I don’t think so,” Hurst, a former journalist, said.
Radford Sheriff Mark Armentrout said Hurst was pulled over after a woman, Emilly Frentress, tampered with campaign signs outside a city recreation center before she got into his car and drove away.
Hurst’s license was also suspended.
“I think what y’all need to do, is after I deal with you here, is go back and fix those signs,” the officer told them. “You gotta resort to doing this, instead of doing a fair election?”
The officer concluded: “You’re supposed to be representing, representing us. And not out here acting like a school kid. How am I supposed to vote for you if you’re out here doing this?”
Hurst lost to Republican challenger Jason Ballard and conceded Wednesday morning at 10 a.m., Fox News reports.
