An anti-Republican sign was removed from a woman’s yard in Hamilton, Texas after police received complaints calling it “disgusting,” according to the Washington Post.

The poster was painted by Marion Stanford and it featured an elephant with its trunk lifting up a girl’s skirt.. “Help” is coming out of the female figure’s mouth and “Your vote matters” is written in bold letters next to the drawing.


Stanford told the Dallas News that she “thought the sign represented what is going on now, and we can’t just stand quiet. I wanted to tell people we could stop it with voting.” She said she made the poster after watching Judge Brett Kavanaugh testify last week about the sexual assault allegations lodged against him.

On Tuesday, Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller shared a picture of Stanford’s lawn on Facebook. He wrote in the caption, “This is in Hamilton, Texas and is supposed to be Judge Kavanaugh’s young daughter. Notice my opponent’s sign in the background. The Democrat sleaze knows NO bounds!”

{But putting sexual predators in the WH and on the SCOTUS isn't sleazy at all!}

The same day Miller’s post went live, Stanford told the Dallas News that police showed up to her house and asked her to remove the sign or they’d arrest her. The city manager of Hamilton, Pete Kampfer, denied that police brought up arrest. “It’s political season, and a citizen here placed a yard sign that featured a political animal taking an inappropriate position with a young child,” he said. “A police member visited the owner’s home, and the owner asked the officer to take the sign.”

Stanford noted the sign, which is still being held at the police station, did not depict Kavanaugh’s daughter. “The cartoon was made last year by Washington Post cartoonist Ann Telnaes, a Pulitzer Prize winner,” she said.

Telnaes responded to the controversy on Twitter, writing, “Good thing I’m not cartooning in Texas.”

I'm glad that her freedom of speech didn't protect her from putting kiddie porn out for the public to see.

It would only have been kiddie porn if it had been a donkey. I keep forgetting which standard to apply. I'm accustomed to just using one.

So it's OK to say "Grab'em by the pussy" as long as you don't imply it on a sign.

Speaking for myself, I don't think either is appropriate. But I don't think signs showing children being sexually molested is on par with vulgar language.

However, I tend to use one standard for both parties.

Maybe I'm overthinking.

It seems to be portraying a person(s) within a political party, personified by an elephant, putting an appendage up a little girl's dress, causing her to cry out for help.

What do you see is being done to her in the picture?
