VERNON, Conn. (AP) – Prosecutors are dropping charges against an 80-year-old Connecticut woman who tore down political signs including one that showed President Barack Obama with an Adolf Hitler-style mustache.
The Hartford Courant reports (
http://cour.at/RirOdR) that prosecutor Cynthia Baer told a judge in Rockville Superior Court on Tuesday that the signs were recovered and Nancy Lack won’t be prosecuted. Lack wasn’t in court but met earlier with the prosecutor.
Lack was arrested Oct. 11 in Hebron after she took down three posters being hung on Main Street by workers for frequent presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche. The workers called police, and Lack was charged with breach of peace and larceny.
Lack told WVIT-TV she lived through World War II and was angry that someone would portray the president as a Nazi.
