The 'F**k Trump' Car Has a New Decal for Sheriff Troy Nehls

The post was deleted after a public uproar that the sheriff's actions were a fascist infringement on the truck owner's free speech rights, but Fonseca ended up being brought in anyway last Thursday on felony fraud charges related to the possession and use of a fake ID.

The Fort Bend Sheriff's Office warrant division arrested her Thursday, and she was released after posting $1,500 bail.

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", KHOU reports.

Forsenca spoke with KPRC Click 2 Houston once again and told reporters, "The sticker is getting its point across".

Following her release from prison, Fonseca posted a photo on Facebook on Sunday of the new message on her truck. She said she had been stopped by law officers, but that they have no grounds to issue a citation.

She said the statement paled in comparison to some of the things President Trump has said.

"We had been thinking about it and decided Troy Nelhs didn't think twice when we went ahead and put the Facebook post up and exposed me and my family". According to KHOU, the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office got a tip about a 2014 warrant for Fonseca.

Afterward, Fonseca was captured on what representatives said was a remarkable warrant accusing her of extortion. "But at the same time, I feel it was gone about the wrong way and the sticker is appropriate", she said.

Nehls said in a press conference last Wednesday that he supported freedom of speech, adding the sheriff's office hadn't threatened anyone with arrest. "We should stand together and always stand behind what [we] believe", Fronseca said.

Although the district attorney has said Fonseca won't face criminal charges, she said she's received nationwide notoriety and that her children and other relatives have been verbally attacked online and at school - all because she did something that is protected by the Constitution.

The following day, Nehls erased the post. For just $9.99 anyone wishing to test how easily their message can slip under the radar and even for those who aren't fans of bright red, the "F**k Trump" Baseball Cap comes in many different colors.
