The 'F**k Trump' Car Has a New Decal for Sheriff Troy Nehls 

Karen Fonseca, resident of Fort Bend, Texas and owner of, arguably, the Lone Star State's most politically-charged vehicle, is asking for it once again with a new decal on the back of her truck.

Next to the predominant "Fuck Trump" sticker that got her in hot water last week, this new decal reads, "Fuck Troy Nehls and fuck you for voting for him."

It began last Wednesday, when Houston-area Sheriff Troy Nehls said he wanted to speak with the owner of this anti-Trump truck in a now-deleted Facebook post. The post includes a photo of the truck with just the Trump decal, as well as threatening to press disorderly conduct charges.
A few days later, Fonseca was arrested on unrelated fraud charges. According to KHOU, the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office got a tip about a 2014 warrant for Fonseca.

"I'm almost certain it does have to do with [the decal]," Fonseca said to KHOU. "People abuse the badge, and in my opinion, money talks. When you're in politics, people know how to work the system."

She was released on $1,500 bail last Thursday.
