Veteran William Overbays Romney Signs, Flags Torches by Vandals

(WKMG)

A Vietnam-era veteran’s Mitt Romney campaign signs were seemingly torched by vandals right in his front yard in Howley-in-the-Hills, Fla., WKMG reports.

William Overbay claims someone lit the flags and signs in his yard on fire. The items were all supportive of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. The vandals reportedly painted a message on his driveway and grass that read “Obama 4 life.”

“This is the first thing I saw was this sign painted on my driveway,” Overbay told WKMG in Orlando.

Police say no clues were immediately found that could identify the offenders.

But Overbay took the politically motivated attack personally because he fought for the country and all Americans’ right to free speech.

“To give that many years for my country and to see it desecrated in such a despicable way angers me…We have freedom of speech and to desecrate any kind of signs is absolutely despicable and a violation of the constitution of the United States,” he said.

The veteran says he plans to replace the torched signs and flags before the upcoming election.
