Secession billboard removed
MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA- Lamar Advertising of Baton Rouge removed a highway billboard that advocated the Southern states secede from the U.S.
The president of the Confederate League of the South says Lamar took the billboard down along I-85 in Montgomery following complaints.
The billboard had the word "secede" in capital letters, along with the organization's name and website. Michael Hill says Lamar offered a refund, but it wasn't necessary since the league had yet to pay.
