Romney Signs, American Flags Torched In Veteran's Yard, 'Obama 4 Life' Spray Painted On Driveway

WKMG: LAKE COUNTY, Fla. – Police are searching for the vandals who apparently torched more than a dozen campaign signs and American flags in a Howey-in-the-Hills veteran’s yard. 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. “This is the first thing I saw was this sign painted on my driveway,” Overbay said. Howey-in-the-Hills police say no one left any clues behind to identify themselves. Overbay said as a Vietnam-era veteran, the hard feelings caused by the vandalism run deep. “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.
