During a road trip, Robert and Natalie Stash thought they’d found the perfect sign to support their favorite president Donald Trump.
The first two lines stated, “Trump 2020.” The last line said, “No more Bullshit”
The word triggered liberals to complain in the city of Pekin, Illinois which prompted a code-enforcement officer to write a citation: The slogan violated city codes prohibiting signs featuring “immoral, obscene or indecent matter.”
The Trump supporters were shocked.
“We’ve never had any run-ins with the city before,” Robert Stash says.
Pekin police chief admitted things will be handled differently in the future
“That’s the nature of the election right now, back and forth,” the chief says.
“Did the sign cross a line? Maybe. But probably not enough where I’d make someone show up at a hearing.”
From now on, though, Pekin will steer away from the code-enforcement headache of evaluating the propriety of every political message — “I can’t even begin to tell you how many ‘Pritzker Sucks’ signs I see,” Dossey says. That’s not to say anything goes with every sign.
The Trump supporter cut their sign so they would not have to pay any fines.
