Woman With Profane Anti-Trump Sticker Goes After Sheriff
   (Sheriff Troy Nehls' Facebook)

The Texas woman who became infamous last week after Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls threatened to arrest her for driving around with a "F--- Trump" bumper sticker on her truck has added the sheriff's name to her latest expletive-ridden decal, the Houston Chronicle reports. Yesterday Karen Fonseca shared a photo of the new sticker on Facebook, placed right next to her old Trump message: "F--- Troy Nehls," it reads, "and f--- you for voting for him."

Last Wednesday, Nehls, a Republican who is considering running for Congress, threatened to arrest Fonseca on Facebook, claiming, "Our Prosecutor has informed us she would accept Disorderly Conduct charges." That post went viral and caught the attention of the ACLU of Texas, which posted, "You can't ban speech just because it has 'f@ck' in it." And while those disorderly conduct charges were never brought, Fonseca was arrested one day later on an outstanding fraud warrant. Fonseca, who is out on bond, says she used to work for Nehls in the county jail. (More Karen fonseca stories.)
