Police are on the lookout for the the person or persons who torched more than a dozen campaign signs and American flags, and wrote “Obama for Life” on a veteran’s yard.
LAKE COUNTY, Fla. -
William Overbay said someone ignited the flags and signs, which supported Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, that he had lined along his yard. The vandals also painted a sign on his driveway reading “Obama for life,” at his DuPont Circle home, Overbay said.
“To give that many years for my country and to see it desecrated in such a despicable way angers me,” Overbay said. “We have freedom of speech and to desecrate any kind of signs is absolutely despicable and a violation of the constitution of the United States.”
Overbay said he’ll be replacing the destroyed signs and flags in time for the election.
In the Local 6 news broadcast, the anchor reported that “it happened again” referring to the spate of political vandalism the area’s been experiencing.
