Menasha attorneys distance themselves from 'Impeach Obama' billboard

Attorney Thomas J. Wroblewski said he and his father, Thomas S. Wroblewski, merely represent an unnamed company that rented the billboard and are not responsible for its message.

“It is nothing personal for my dad or me,” Wroblewski said. “It is a limited liability company that our firm represents. The company chose the location of the billboard and chose the language.”

A billboard calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama is located next to the Oshkosh Correctional Institution along the northbound lanes of U.S. 41.

The billboard along U.S. 41 reads “Impeach Obama.” The tagline says, “America’s small businesses are failing. Help us spread the message.”

The sign appeared Thursday and will remain in place for six months. Its message quickly generated national media attention and ignited a firestorm of debate online, often along political lines. A Google search for “impeach Obama billboard” generated 346,000 results Tuesday afternoon.

“It is simply an expression of frustration by my client that politics in Washington should change to better support small businesses,” he said.
