John McCain supporters wave flags that were allegedly found at the site of Barack Obama’s nomination acceptance address, September 6, 2008
Democrats are not caring for their Stars and Stripes. At least thatâ€™s the message out of John McCainâ€™s campaign.
McCain supporters, claiming they rescued 12,000 miniature American flags from the site of Barack Obamaâ€™s nomination acceptance speech last Thursday, redistributed the orphan flags to audience members ahead of a McCain campaign rally in Colorado Springs Saturday.
They say the flags were recovered from Invesco Field in Denver after the conclusion of the Democratic National Convention. A vendor supposedly discovered trash bags full of flags in and nearby dumpsters, and turned them over to the McCain campaign.
The original story coming out of Denver about the discarded flags is here.
Fox News is now reporting that a response from the Democrat Party implies that the flags were stolen or misappropriated by the GOP.
Stay tuned as this story grows legs.
