A 75-year-old small business owner in Chicago has been labeled a “racist” by a vandal after posting an anti-Obama messages on his store window, CBS Chicago reports.
Sam Wolfson is reportedly a well known shopkeeper in Lincoln Square and has been well respected by the community for more than a decade.
Written by hand on plain white paper, Wolfson posted the following messages on his store window:
“Romney, if you want to be president, you have to say this: ‘If I’m elected, I will not bow down to the king of Saudi Arabia’” and “Obama I built this business working 7 days a week, you didn’t.”
He told WBBM Newsradio that he came into work one morning and found a response written in lipstick.
“I was coming to work and in lipstick it had a sign, ‘Racist.’ I’m not a racist. My wife is Spanish. Come on,” he said.
Wolfson says this kind of behavior is to be excepted during such a highly contested election year.
WBBM Newsradio got a reaction from at least one local resident.
“I don’t necessarily disagree with the sentiments by the lipstick vandal…But I don’t condone such actions,” one person said.
