Elderly Woman Arrested For Tearing Down Posters Showing President Obama With Hitler-Like Mustache

HEBRON, Conn. (CBSNewYork) - An elderly Connecticut woman who tore down political signs showing an image of President Obama with an Adolf Hitler-style mustache was arrested and charged with larceny and breach of peace.

Nancy Lack, 80, said she was offended by the picture and ripped down three posters that were hung last week near the Hebron, Conn. post office on Main Street.

Workers for presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche were hanging the posters and called police after seeing Lack tear some down.

The website for LaRouche PAC calls President Obama a 'puppet' and calls for his impeachment.

Lack said she knew she'd get in trouble for her actions, but said she lived through World War II and it made her angry seeing anyone portray the President as a Nazi.

Lack is due in court next week.
