"It's a shame someone did that," said Michelle Flowers of Salix. "People have their loved ones resting here."
In the small, quiet community of Salix three political signs were put up right next to grave sites.
"I drive this road everyday," said Flowers. "I noticed the signs in this cemetery and its horrible."
The signs were placed in the Dunmyer Cemetery along Route 160.
"It's disrespectful to the families who have loved ones buried here," said Clay Carroll of Windber. "I am sure they could have found somewhere else to put them- there are plenty of fields around here."
WTAJ News spoke to Republican Party officials about the placements of the signs, they said they had no idea they were there and plan to find out who is responsible.
"I hope they remove them," said Flowers.
The head of the International Cemetery Association told WTAJ News he's not aware of a law that regulates this issue. He did state that it's unusual and inappropriate but usually an of private property that would prohibit the signs.
