Texas driver's anti-Trump sticker causes stir

Sheriff Troy Nehs now-deleted Facebook post

In a post on Facebook, Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy E. Nehls said he had received numerous calls about the offending sticker.

Nehls on Wednesday posted a photo of the truck decal on Facebook, adding that authorities could pursue disorderly conduct charges.

He asked for tips on the identity of the truck's owner and said he would "like to discuss it" with the owner. Nehls' office tells Bustle that the local press conference that the sheriff gave on Wednesday - which was reportedly organized due to "the high volume of interview requests" - would be the extent of his comments on the matter. "Our Prosecutor has informed us she would accept Disorderly Conduct charges regarding it, but I feel we could come to an agreement regarding a modification to it", Sheriff Nehls posted.

Fonseca says she had the decal custom made eleven months ago.

More people in Fort Bend voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton over Republican Donald Trump in the 2016 election, records show. "It's just our freedom of speech and we're exercising it". "They're like, 'we wish that we could do this and we had enough guts to do it, and you're doing it'".

Though Fonseca has been confronted about the sticker, she says it's never caused too big of an issue.

Nehls said he wants to avoid a potential confrontation on the road, where another driver might take offense to the profane anti-Trump display.

"I'm not going to remove it because I know I'm not violating any laws or rules", she said.

A profane anti-Trump sticker is drawing outrage from a Texas community and its sheriff, who wants a couple to change the sticker on their truck so it doesn't contain obscenities. "Due to the hate messages he has been receiving towards his wife and children, the Sheriff will not be commenting on the matter further".

The Texas chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union offered to help Fonseca - and provided Nehls with a "Constitutional Law 101" lesson: "You can't ban speech just because it has [expletive] in it". "As an atheist, it annoys and irritates me to see that!"

The U.S. Supreme Court in 1971's Cohen v. California said that a law on disturbing the peace violated the Constitution when it was applied against a man who wore the phrase "f-k the draft" on a jacket.
