A parking lot owner in Gibsonville, NC as put up a sign saying Obama supporters are not welcome.

WFMY’s Julia Bagg reported:

“A lot owner put up “no parking” signs targeting Barack Obama supporters.”

“Parking lot owner Tim Henderson is quite clear about the message he’s sending from two identical signs he posted, warning ‘no parking’ for Obama supporters or people with Obama bumper stickers.”

“‘I don’t know how many ways you can interpret it. If you’re an Obama supporter, you’ve got an Obama sticker on your car, you’re not welcome to park here,’ says Henderson.”

After this report was filed, WFMY reported that the Mayor Lenny Williams had made an agree with Henderson for the removal of the sign.
