As we reported back in August, the "Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment" protest had been drawing some attention, most notably from police officers who felt the "distracting" displays of distention were a threat to public safety.  But one Georgia group recently faced a negative reaction they never could've predicted.

WSBRadio reports:

A group of Gwinnett County protestors who were assaulted during a recent demonstration against President Barack Obama say they plan to return to the overpass at Steve Reynolds Boulevard this weekend.

The women, who are part of the nationwide movement Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment, were holding signs last Saturday when they say a man pulled up beside them and pointed a gun at one and splashed another with an unknown liquid.

"I felt it on my foot... it burned, so I thought it was a household chemical," Marge Moore tells WSB's Sandra Parrish.

She says just moments earlier, a couple in a car had driven by and threatened to kill them. [...]

Protestor Toni Pendley says even though the women were shaken up, they won't give up protesting the policies of the president including Obamacare, the Benghazi attack, and the NSA leaks.

"We're going to come back out here," says Pendley. "We're not going to let him or anyone intimidate us."
