A northeastern Indiana tea party group has moved its billboard comparing President Barack Obama to Osama Bin Laden at the request of the owner of the property where it originally stood.

Whitley County Patriots spokesman David Ditton tells WANE-TV the billboard that stood along U.S. 30 just west of the Allen County line was taken down Monday at the request of property owner Steel Dynamics Inc. The billboard now stands about 20 miles to the west along U.S. 30 in the town of Larwill.

The billboard shows armed military personnel and the text, "The Navy Seals removed one threat to America. the voters must remove the other."

A message seeking comment was left with Fort-Wayne-based Steel Dynamics.
