W. Pa. man in landlord dispute over Obama sign

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A western Pennsylvania man is having an unusual dispute with his landlord over a hand-painted “Impeach Obama” sign.

Brent Kovac says he put the sign up outside his Pittsburgh-area strip mall office last week, and that within 48 hours it had been painted over by his landlord, TV station KDKA reports Tuesday.

Kovac says he’s rented the space for nine years and has hung political signs before. He painted the same message again on Monday night, several days after it had been painted over.

Kovac, who is president of a local Republican Committee, says he had not received any official support from civil rights organizations or from Allegheny County Republicans.

KDKA says the landlord didn’t respond to a call seeking comment.
