Eighty-Year-Old Woman Arrested for Removing Posters of Obama With Hitler MustachePosted: October 18, 2012
Nancy Lack, 80, was driving by the post office on Main Street in Hebron, when she saw some signs showing President Barack Obama with a mustache similar to the one worn by Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.
Lack said she was so offended by the images that she took the posters down.
“I just got very angry that they would do that to [President] Obama’s image,” Lack said.
The posters belonged to LaRouchePac. Ms. Lack is charged with sixth-degree larceny and breach of peace could be jailed for three months.
“I guess I deserved it. I stole the posters,” said Lack.
While Lack said she didn’t expect to be arrested, she remains defiant and stands by tearing down the posters because of what they represent.
“My generation went through the Second World War, and Nazism is about the worst there can be,” said Lack.
