INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A digital billboard message imploring Congress to “Impeach Obama” is no longer running after a daylong run in Kendallville.
The billboard at Kendallville’s Cornerstone Plaza shopping center showed President Barack Obama with a Hitler-style mustache. Fort Wayne news outlets first reported Tuesday it was paid for by former presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche’s political action committee.
Drawing a Hitler-style mustache on the president is common among LaRouche’s supporters. They often frequented tea party rallies in Washington carrying signs of the president with the mustache.
A telephone message seeking comment was left for Cornerstone Plaza owner Roger Diehm. But Diehm told The News-Sun that any political party can buy space on his sign about 25 miles northwest of Fort Wayne.
Kendallville Mayor SuzAnne Handshoe says the sign was inappropriate.
