The wheelman: Colliers’ Adam Tischer tied up in campaign sign swipe incident

Colliers International’s Adam Tischer, a prominent Downtown L.A. broker, has had a fast and furious election day.

A Tesla SUV with plates registered to Tischer, a campaign donor to City Council incumbent Gil Cedillo, was spotted in a security video released by a homeowner in L.A.’s Mount Washington neighborhood. In the video, which appeared on KTLA news, a man exits the Tesla, enters a neighboring yard and steals signs that support Joe Bray-Ali, who is running against Cedillo. The man then drops the signs in the backseat of the vehicle and jumps in the passenger side before it pulls away.

Tischer, who Ethics Commission filings show donated $3,300 to Cedillo between April 2014 and October 2016, did not respond to an email request for comment. His partner, Mark Tarczynski, donated $1,400 during the same period.

“It’s just sad that they have to stoop to this low of a tactic,” Bray-Ali told KTLA. In a statement, Cedillo told KTLA that “stealing yard signs is against the law and goes against the spirit of our electoral system.”

The man in the video does not appear to be Tischer himself, though he does drive a Tesla, sources told The Real Deal. In fact, Tischer mentioned his Tesla in an earlier interview with TRD about parking requirements. In the story, Tischer described his experiment with going carless, using Ubers and public transportation instead. He ultimately found the lack of a vehicle to be too much of a headache.

“I can’t tell you the pleasure I feel of stepping in my car and having the stereo resume the same song I was playing,” he said of his Tesla purchase.
