NECN – DANIELLE WAUGH
A Rockland, Maine, woman says she would rather go to jail than take down her pro-Donald Trump signs.
Susan Reitman has hung two banners on her front gate: One that says “I love Trump” and another that says “He Won, Get over it.”
She received a notice from the city’s code enforcement office a few days ago, asking her to take them down.
“I was shocked,” she said. “This is my freedom of speech. People have a right to voice their opinion.”
Assistant Code Officer Bill Butler said another Rockland resident complained about the signs’ size. The city ordinance states residential signs can be no larger than 2 square feet.
Reitman’s signs are a little larger than 3 feet by 2 feet.
“They’re well over the limit,” Butler said.
