Vandalized Bush sign ordered removed

ALBUQUERQUE, Oct. 21 (UPI) -- An Albuquerque Bush supporter resorted to lights, video cameras, chicken wire and a chain-link fence to protect his 8-foot-tall Bush-Cheney '04 lawn sign.

For several weeks, Charles Davis, 90, has seen his sign slashed, stolen, riddled with paintballs and ignited -- twice, the Albuquerque Journal reported.

"NO TRESPASSING -- You are being filmed and will be prosecuted!" read a small sign affixed to one of the stilts upon which Davis mounted his ode to Bush for added security.

But the city of Albuquerque managed to legally accomplish what dogged vandals' repeated attempts couldn't. Davis' sign was ordered removed by the city's zoning enforcement division for exceeding the size limit allowed in residential neighborhoods.

"It's turned into quite a little saga here," said Davis's son Bruce, who removed the sign Wednesday.
