Construction signs in Alaska hacked to read 'impeach Obama'
By Keith Laing - 07/06/12 05:08 PM ET

Construction signs on roads in Anchorage, Alaska, were hacked this week to suggest that President Obama be impeached.

The Alaska Department of Transportation said signs that are normally used to inform drivers about construction and detours ahead of them on roads were changed without permission to suggest charges be filed against the president, according to a report by Anchorage television station KTUU.

“I'm sure somebody thought it was a pretty funny joke but we try to convey a lot of important information with these signs,” Alaska DOT regional construction engineer Tim Croghan told the station, which is the NBC affiliate in Alaska.

The television station reported that the Alaska transportation department does not lock the boxes that contain the controls for its electronic signs.

That's a shame. Alaskans must know it'll take months, maybe YEARS until the IRS shows up to fully enforce Commiecare™.

I'm pretty sure the person or people who did this did not do it as a "joke".

I’m surprised the 0bamaArmy unionized construction workers allowed this to happen.

were changed without permission...

Seems to me the solution is quite simple, and need not involve the expense of protecting the boxes or of reprogramming them. Have the legislature pass a bill, sign by the gov: Grant the lacking Permission.

Suggest? Sounds like a popular sentiment to me, but there are better odds of voting his butt out.

Funny.

They do that ALL the time here in L.A. I’ve read some very amusing signs over the years.

Good looking sign. It’s probably too late to impeach him this year.

The local rag wouldn’t show photos of this hacking (although they mentioned it) but they did have photos of the same sign reading “Honk for Boobs” earlier in the morning.
