A Florida man is receiving attention for a sign that is not only offensive and factually inaccurate, it also contains a key misspelling.

Central Florida 13 News reported:

“Neighbors of Andy Lacasse said the sign, which reads ‘Obama Half-Breed Muslin [sic],’ breaches the fine line between free speech and inappropriateness.”

“Lacasse put the sign on his lawn Saturday. A Korean War veteran, he said he was a registered Democrat until Obama won the nomination.”

“Lacasse said he plans to put an even bigger sign in place of the small, handmade one.”
