The man was holding a sign that said "Yes Ms. Clinton, It does make a difference" when he was escorted out. That sign was apparently in reference to her testimony before Congress in January of 2013 regarding the September 11 attacks in Benghazi that left four Americans dead. "We had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or because of guys out for a walk one night and decided to go kill some Americans? At this point what difference does it make, Senator?" Clinton asked Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis.

In the video, the man is removed from his position near the candidate either out of the venue or at least out of view of the cameras. According to CBS 11's Jack Fink, the man was escorted out of the rally.

The man had earlier held up a larger sign mentioning past scandals involving the Clintons. That sign was ripped down by someone after which he then raised the smaller sign seen in the video. That smaller sign appears to have been torn off the bottom of the larger sign.

The Republican front runner is no stranger to having people removed from his rallies. Back in August, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump's campaign had Spanish-language TV anchor, Jorge Ramos removed from an event.  According to CBS News Trump told Ramos to "go back to Univision" when the anchor stood up and attempted to get in the first question to Trump at the event. Ramos was eventually allowed back into the event.
