Michigan farmer Vern Verduin has won the right to display signs critical of Pres. Obama – on Verduin’s own truck and property – after Gaines Township officials took him to court in an effort to force him to remove them.
In response to First Amendment arguments raised by The Rutherford Institute, a state district court has dismissed charges against the Michigan cattle farmer who was cited and fined for displaying political banners critical of the Obama administration on a farming truck parked on his private 40-acre lot.
The banners mounted by Vern Verduin on his farm truck read:
“Marxism/Socialism = Hunger and Poverty” and
“Obama’s ‘Mission Accomplished,’ 8% Unemployment, 16 Trillion Debt
