A controversial poster of President Obama led to the arrest of a woman in Hebron.
Charges have been dropped against a Hebron woman was arrested over her reaction to a controversial political sign.
Nancy Lack, 80, was driving by the post office on Main Street in Hebron on Oct. 11 when she saw some signs showing President Barack Obama with a mustache similar to the one worn by Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.
She 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. “I took the one by the road and the two by the table.”
The posters were from LaRouchePAC, which backs presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche, and supports impeaching President Obama for what they describe as “war crimes, cover-ups and blatant violations of the constitution.”
Lack said when she removed the posters, she knew she would get in trouble. Some workers with LaRouchePAC tried stopping her, but Lack wouldn’t back down.
“A woman was following me to the car and I put the posters in the car and I said, ‘Make sure you get my license plate.’”
Lack was arrested and charged with sixth-degree larceny and breach of peace.
“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.
There was a brief court appearance on Tuesday.
