BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A highway sign outside of Holy Name Parish in West Roxbury caused a stir on Election Day. The sign featured the words "Let's Go Brandon," which puzzled several observers.
"I don't know what that means..." said one observer. "Must be code," she continued. She's right, in a way. The slogan is a veiled dig at President Biden, according to the AP.
The 5-by-5 digital sign on a trailer attached to a Lincoln SUV has been there since late Monday or early Tuesday, and attracted significant attention from people at the nearby polling station.
"This is making a joke and a mockery of the election process," said one man. Another said he'd come to unplug it, and the men decided their best course of action was to cover the sign with a sheet and some rope. Less than a minute later, another man drove up and began shouting at the other men to take the sheet down. The group almost came to blows after yelling at each other for four or five minutes.
WBZ's Chris Fama checked with multiple state and local agencies, who don't know where the sign came from.
