Let’s be clear, the Lake County Democratic Party in Florida, did not fly the American Flag, what they flew was an American Flag that was tampered with and defaced, which is in direct violation of Florida State Laws that protect the flag, according to Statue 256.06.

The flag, which hung long enough to enrage many Americans, was hung over Florid county’s Democratic headquarters. Although democrats later took down the flag, the damage had already been done.

“It’s absolutely disrespectful,” said Jim Bradford, a 71-year-old veteran. “It’s a disgrace to do that.”
Bradford is an organizer at the Veterans Memorial at Fountain Park, and was able to snap photographs of the flag before it was taken down.

Nancy Hurlbert, the chairwoman of the Lake County Democratic Party, attempted to justify the image of Obama on the flag saying; “It leads me to believe that it’s not about the flag, certain elements cannot accept Barack Obama as president.”

Luckily, Jenn Meale, the communications direct for a Florida Attorney General, has revealed state laws that protect the flag.

No person shall, in any manner, for exhibition or display:

1. Place or cause to be placed any word, figure, mark, picture, design, drawing or advertisement of any nature upon any flag, standard, color, ensign or shield of the United States or of this state, or authorized by any law of the United States or this state; or

2. Expose to public view any such flag, standard, color, ensign or shield upon which shall have been printed, painted or otherwise produced, or to which shall have been attached, appended, affixed or annexed any such word, figure, mark, picture, design, drawing or advertisement.”
