Austin Man Being Investigated by Secret Service…Because Of a Chair?

KEYE-TV, Austin

Clint Eastwood added to his legend during the Republican National Convention with Obama the Empty Chair bit. Since then ‘the chair’ has entered the American lexicon. Never again will anyone be able to look at an empty one without thinking of BHO.  But one Austin man has crossed a line, at least as far as the U.S. Secret Service is concerned. According to “The Drudge Report”, the Secret Service has taken interest.

Bud Johnson decided to express his frustration with President Obama by ‘hanging’ a chair from a tree on his front lawn. Apparently, some of the neighbors didn’t take too kindly to the gesture and notified law enforcement. When news reporters approached his home, Johnson was in the process of taking down the metal folding effigy and, well, he didn’t take too kindly to them.  Johnson told the reporters to get “the hell away”. Johnson placed the chair on his lawn near the tree.  We’ll continue to follow the story and update you on the outcome.
