ST PETERSBURG — As Americans honored the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday, a Republican candidate for Florida House District 68 said President Barack Obama should be hanged for war crimes.
"I'm past impeachment," Joshua Black wrote on Twitter. "It's time to arrest and hang him high."
The tweet caught the attention of Chris Latvala, a Republican candidate for House District 67.
"You aren't seriously calling for the killing of Obama are you?" Latvala replied. "I know you are crazy but good heavens. U R an embarrassment."
