DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) -- A framed, 1934 poster is too political to an Iowa woman who has kicked up a fuss about it in Dubuque County.
The poster adorns a wall in the office of the county treasurer, Eric Stierman, who says it's a historical decoration, not political.
Cedar Rapids television station KCRG says (http://bit.ly/SClED3) the poster's message is at the heart of Kim Ruhter's objections. It says: "Vote Straight Democratic Ticket.
Ruhter is a Republican, but she says she'd be offended by the poster's presence in a government office even it were a Republican sign.
Stierman says he'd be happy to hang another historical poster with a Republican message.
Assistant County Attorney Chris Corken says she'll check into whether the poster violates any ordinance or law.
