A few days ago we told you about a woman named Karen Fonseca who made headlines for a massive ‘F*ck Trump’ window sticker on her truck. As reported, a few days after her sticker went viral she found herself arrested for an outstanding warrant she had no idea she had.
She’s out of jail now, but Karen fully believes her arrest was related to her ‘F*ck Trump’ sticker– so she’s added an additional one.
Her new sticker follows the phrasing of the original, but says ‘F*ck Troy Nehls’ — the name of the sheriff behind her arrest.
On Sunday, the Fort Bend, Texas, woman who went from headlines to handcuffs, due to the attention brought about by her “F— Trump” bumper sticker, shared a photo of a new decal she’d placed on her truck that takes aim at her local sheriff.
Now to the very right of Karen Fonseca’s “F— Trump and f–k you for voting for him” sticker on the back window of her husband’s white truck is the slightly smaller message, “F— Troy Nehls and f–k you for voting for him,” KHOUreports.
In his own controversial Facebook post, Nehls previously addressed the “F— Trump” sticker and posted an image of the vehicle online.
“I have received numerous calls regarding the offensive display on this truck as it is often seen along FM 359. If you know who owns this truck or it is yours, I would like to discuss it with you,” he wrote on his personal page. “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.”
The sheriff removed the post over criticisms that he was infringing on the driver’s right to free speech, but the drama continued when Fonseca came forward to defend the decal.
Her identity revealed, authorities claimed she had an outstanding warrant for fraud and arrested her last Thursday.
Fonseca was released on bond and has since stated she believes the arrest was related to the sticker and that officers have pulled her over in the past yet found no reason to ticket her.
Meanwhile, Nehls told KHOU, “I’m not surprised,” when asked about the latest sticker and said he found it “somewhat disgusting.”
During a news conference Monday alongside her family and attorney, Fonseca said that “regarding the injustice against” her, she is considering launching a civil rights lawsuit against Nehls.
“We are all equal. Not any one of us is any better than anyone else,” she said. “Everyone’s voice should be heard. I’m just one person, but if I can be used as bait for Troy Nehls … in his upcoming race for Congress against Pete Olson, then this is how the system works: pick on the people who are vulnerable and step in and turn their lives around for gain. I feel that is really crazy.”
Nehls is only reportedly considering running for a seat in the House of Representatives against Republican incumbent Pete Olson and has made no formal announcements on the matter.
You go Karen!
