MIDDLETOWN, Del. (AP) — A Delaware state house candidate has acknowledged removing her opponent’s campaign literature from the front door of a home.

News outlets report Monique Johns asked voters to forgive her in a statement issued Monday by the Delaware Democratic Party.

Her statement came a day after a resident posted recordings from his home security system on Facebook. The first video showed Republican incumbent Kevin Hensley leaving the pamphlet, while the second shows a woman removing Hensley’s pamphlet and replacing it with another.

Johns identified herself as the woman in the video. She says her own signs have been stolen, too.

The 49-year-old secretary at the Department of Labor won a three-way primary to challenge Hensley last month. Hensley, who’s seeking a third term, defeated Johns in 2016.

Nice Sunday for our local candidates to make house calls. In the first video is Kevin Hensley dropping by the house…
