Sarasota Patch.com: City Responds to Defeat Obama Sign Controversy
Defeat Obama’ sign draws ire of Obama mega-fundraiser, mega support from readers
Caren Lobo, wife of an Obama administration official, requested Sarasota, FL, government remove the "Defeat Obama in 2012" sign, but the city attorney says it's not an election sign.
It's big, and it has the words Obama and 2012 on it, but what the "Defeat Obama in 2012" sign isn't is an election sign, according to Sarasota, Florida's city attorney.
As noted in the public email records for the City of Sarasota, City Attorney Robert M. Fournier has decided that the "Defeat Obama in 2012" sign located at 50 N. Tamiami Trail can stay because it is not considered an election sign meaning that it does not endorse a person running for office nor does it support a specific political party. The sign was installed by Bird Key resident and investor Michael Fox.

Hat tips to all links.
Update: Just finished reading a comment by a Dem at this link:
Sarasota Democratic Party Chairwoman Rita Ferrandino issued a statement via e-mail saying: "Wealthy Sarasota investor Michael Fox spent a $1 million in January for a downtown property and then hangs Defeat Obama sign. No wonder why the 99% are so upset and support Obama."
Oh. MY. GOSH!!! Could we all just have a field day responding to THAT bunch of BULL**** AND HYPOCRISY???!!!
Let's start a "knickers in a twist" countdown!!!
