Karen Fonseca of Texas would like people to know that she didn’t ask for this fight.
“I never chose to be in the news at all,” said Fonseca. “Until Troy Nehls made it public on his personal Facebook page.”
Now that her name, as well as her “F-Trump” truck, has been making headlines the world over she has decided to start selling the stickers.
She and her kids are now selling the infamous “F-Trump” bumper stickers and she is also planning on selling “F-Troy Nehls” stickers. Each sticker will sell for $15 and according to her, they are selling like hotcakes.
“Why would you put it on your vehicle if you didn’t agree with me?” Fonseca asked.
The fact that the story has gone viral is translating into sales of the sticker that was designed by Fort Bend County Democrats. Sales started out slow for the first three months but with the attention she has been getting lately, they have sold 120 in three days.
.@SheriffTNehls, you can't prosecute speech just because it has the word "f*ck" in it. (And the owner of the truck should feel free to contact @ACLUTx.) #ConstitutionalLaw101 #FreeSpeech pic.twitter.com/WPWUW5fFwo

“It’s turned into this bigger thing, everything is back ordered,” said Ali Hasanali. “We can’t print enough, even if they want to buy now there’s going to be a delay because we have to print a lot more up.”
Hasanali works with Democrats and says Fonseca is now a party symbol for those who want to stand up to politicians who abuse the power they are given.
“My hats off to Karen for being forthcoming and not being pressured or intimidated,” stated Hasanali. “She’s a rallying cry for anyone who cares about individual liberties.”
The money raised by the stickers sold by the Democrats in Fort Bend County will be put towards voter registration aimed at getting elderly voters to their polling stations.
