The woman whose huge”F*CK TRUMP” sticker went viral has been arrested.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Karen Fonseca, the driver with the large anti-Trump sticker, was arrested on an outstanding warrant Thursday. Her warrant was based on fraud charges and her bail was set to $1,500 shortly after her 2 PM arrest.

As the Chronicle‘s report notes, Fonseca’s husband owns the truck, but she often drives it.

Yesterday, Fonseca’s sticker went viral after Fort Bend County’s Republican Sheriff made a since-deleted Facebook post calling for disorderly conduct charges against the driver of the truck.

Soon after, the American Civil Liberties Union’s Texas chapter jumped into the fray, reminding Sheriff Troy Nehls that Fonseca has a constitutional right to post the sticker on her vehicle despite the profanity it uses.

Fonseca told the Chronicle she used to work with Sheriff Nehls at the county jail, and that this was far from the first time the sticker on the truck she shares with her husband has been noticed by law enforcement. She said in the past, officers have pulled her over but “failed to find a reason to write a ticket.”

Fonseca also said she does not intend to contact her former co-worker, who the report notes has a history of controversial remarks, including that “criminals who enter Fort Bend County could leave in a body bag.”

Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy," Voto Latino CEO María Teresa Kumar said Democrats should not count on taking Florida's 29 electoral votes in the upcoming 2020 presidential election if Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the at the top of the ticket.

During a fairly contentious panel discussion on the viability of Sanders as a candidate due to self-identifying as a democratic socialist, Kumar claimed that would not play well Florida's Latino community.

"All I can think about when David [Corn] was unpacking it for us, we can all agree is you can kiss Florida goodbye," she explained. "I say that, Floridians -- Latinos that have fled socialism, they have fled and they are in Florida and they have sensibilities that are different from the rest of the Latino community."

During a panel discussion on CNN's State of the Union, contributor Bakari Sellers set fellow panelist Rick Santorum straight after he tried to claim that Donald Trump doesn't take far-right positions.

Following a discussion on Sen. Bernie Sanders' Nevada caucus win, Santorum tried to note the major differences between Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Responding to conservative commentator Linda Chavez who called both Sanders and Trump "two angry people," Santorum remarked, "I wanted to take issue with what Linda said: two angry folks representing the extremes, and I would agree with that, with Bernie Sanders, and he is representing, no question, the extreme of the Democratic Party and he says that he is a socialist and he is angry, I agree."

The report states, "A slide used in an Advanced Placement history class at Loch Raven High School in Towson shows a picture of Trump above pictures of a Nazi swastika and a flag of the Soviet Union. Two captions read 'wants to round up a group of people and build a giant wall' and 'oh, THAT is why it sounds so familiar!'"
