So we got a congressional candidate in Florida who thinks Obama should be executed. Let's see how this flies come election time.
GOP Florida House candidate on Obama: ‘It’s time to arrest and hang him high’
In a tweet on Monday afternoon, Black wrote that he was “past impeachment.”
“It’s time to arrest and hang him high,” he added.
Republican candidate for House District 67 Chris Latvala replied in shock.
“You aren’t seriously calling for the killing of Obama are you?” he asked. “I know you are crazy but good heavens.U R an embarrassment.”
“Execution is the appropriate punishment for traitors,” Black shot back in another tweet.
In a Facebook post later that night, Black cited the administration’s actions against terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki, Army whistleblower Bradley Manning and former NSA contractor Eric Snowden as the reason that Obama should be executed.
