    CLERMONT, Fla. — A vocal and graphic Internet campaign attacking President Barack Obama just hit Central Florida and one of its first targets was a U.S. Post Office (see images). Several Lake County residents called WFTV when they spotted the 'Joker' posters on stop signs and saw workers scraping them off the post office in Clermont.

    "He looks so mean, gruesome and evil and this is not something you want to portray your president. Very disrespectful," Clermont resident Charlene Forth told Eyewitness News.

    CLERMONT -- A week-long poster-hanging tirade by anonymous individuals peppered hundred of signs around town depicting President Barack Obama as the Joker character from the Batman movie "The Dark Knight."

    On Thursday afternoon, one suspect was questioned.

    "Through the assistance of a witness, we have spoken to one subject identified as putting the posters up and he admitted to officers he did put up some of the posters," a press release from the Clermont Police Department read.
    Clermont Police Captain Eric Jensen said when officers approached the suspect for questioning, he admitted to hanging about 500 posters and asked permission to record the encounter.
