(Lincoln, NE)  --  A vandalism charge is being dropped against a University of Nebraska-Lincoln researcher.  Thirty-nine-year-old Patricia Wonch Hill appeared in Lancaster County Court where one of her two charges was dismissed yesterday.  The Omaha World Herald reports Hill is accused of defacing Nebraska First District Congressman Jeff Fortenberry's campaign signs by placing "googly eyes" on them, and placing stickers on Nebraska Senator Deb Fischer's office in Lincoln.  The charge concerning the Fortenberry signs was dropped because the Republican congressman declined to show up for the trial.
