" An 80-year-old woman who remembers when the United States helped defeat the Nazis faces charges for tearing down posters of President Barack Obama with a Hitler mustache.
Nancy Lack said she was livid when she saw the posters, put up by supporters of perennial fringe presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche, outside of her post office in Hebron, Conn., NBC Connecticut reported.
"My generation went through the Second World War, and Nazism is about the worst there can be," Lack told NBC Connecticut. "I just got very angry that they would do that to Obama’s image."
She took down the posters, knowing she would get in trouble for it, and put them in her car while a worker with LaRouchePAC followed her.
Afterward, she was arrested and now faces sixth-degree larceny and breach of peace charges.
"I guess I deserved it. I stole the posters," she said, adding that she stood by her actions.
Those posters weren't the only political displays with the president's likeness targeted in Connecticut this week.
NBC Connecticut reported that a scarecrow display featuring the faces of President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and five other prominent Democrats — part of an annual scarecrow contest – was set on fire on Colchester's town green Tuesday night. "
