Hacked highway sign declares ‘Hillary for Prison!’

Just days after Dallas electronic street signs were hacked to warn drivers that Donald Trump was a “shape-shifting lizard,” and urging people to vote for Bernie Sanders, we have another political statement via digital traffic sign. And this time, Republicans have their say about Hillary Clinton.

KDFW Fox 4 in Dallas reports someone hacked a digital sign along Interstate 30 in the city, with the words “Hillary for Prison” flashing over and over to drivers who took the time to read it. It also displayed the phrase “Free Barrett Brown,” in reference to the independent journalist and former member of Anonymous, who was sent to prison for leaking information about government military contractors.

The new incident occurred less than half a mile from the last sign hacking, but it is unclear if the same person is behind it. It certainly isn’t out of the realm of possibility that the same person could be both “Never Trump” and “Never Hillary.”

Whoever is behind the hacking is certainly a better speller than the TV station employee who created the graphic for the news story, who misspelled “prison,” as this screenshot shows:

It looks like the “vast right wing conspiracy” Hillary Clinton warned us about is at it again!
