The police reported that the sign came from the Greenwich Kempo karate school located next door to the Republican headquarters. The "Bob" in question was the name of the training dummy the students practice on and the sign, done in colored tape with flowers and hearts drawn on it, was meant as motivation.

Jonathan Simon, the head instructor at the school, explained the sign was left over from a black belt test conducted over the weekend. A young student identified as "Hailey" had to carry the dummy around the school's parking lot and one of her friends put up the sign as encouragement. Simon said he was sorry for any misunderstanding. Meanwhile, Hailey passed her black belt test. Bob's current condition is not known.
