Fed's investigate "almost-obscene" Sign

Anti-Obama Sign In California Taken Down After Negative Reaction - cbs2chicago.com


Quote:
An anti-Obama sign that had sparked an investigation after being placed near a busy California highway was removed overnight just as local and federal investigators were looking into whether the sign and its almost-obscene phrases was a crime.


The sign along Highway 99 in Acampo, Calif., switched letters between words to avoid outright profanity, reading: "Obama = Niggardly," "Hurts small biz," "Buck Ofama," with a sign on the side that reads "Gone fish'n." It's unclear who took the sign down.

Although the sign didn't display actual racial epithets -- the word "niggardly" is defined by dictionaries as "stingy" -- the restaurant owner who rents the property told CBS station KOVR-TV she was concerned that she will be blamed for its implications.

"We didn't hang the sign," said K&D Brew-Thru owner Claudia Silva. "It probably looks bad because we're closing the business right now."

Good for whoever did it. At least they were smart about it and didn't threaten the president. IIRC is a federal crime.

Yeah, I was quick to edit a few posts on a forum that I'm a mod on, I know the guys were just joking around, but cleaned it up and sent them a PM, posted the law for them to see. They don't take that crap lightly and don't care if it was a joke.

Obama isn't even a United States citizen. For those of you who voted for him...
