Hillary Effigy Hanging Above I-5 Gets Attention
Billy Pitner, of Sutherlin, Oregon hung a wetsuit in women’s clothing and a blonde wig from a crane near I-5. Beside the Hillary effigy was a sign that read: “Vote Trump” “Uranium One” and “Treason: ask her.”
Oregon Live reported,
As the presidential campaign continues into uncharted territory of vitriol and hyperbole, one Oregon man has made a visual statement extreme for even this election season by hanging an effigy of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton from a crane along Interstate 5, according to media reports.
The candidate’s likeness — clad in a black wetsuit, women’s clothing and a blonde wig — dangles from a tall crane outside of the town of Sutherlin and is surrounded by toilets filled with signs representing the Bureau of Land Management and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Pitner’s comment to KVAL news was: “I’m allowed to have my feelings, right, wrong, or indifferent. Here you are. Got your attention, didn’t it?”
He got attention, all right, but not sure it was the kind that will help Donald Trump get more votes. Hillary may feel like she’s been hung from a crane these days, but the effigy leaves a lot to be desired in appearance. Fortunately, the sign helps us some in figuring out the message.
Mr. Pitner said he was trying to bring attention to the crimes of Hillary Clinton. He plans to leave the effigy up and change the sign every day for a while, even though a local priest asked him to take the display down.
If he changes the sign every day, he’s got a lot of things to write on it. He may run out of time before the election to get them all on it.
Sutherlin, Oregon has a population of just under 8,000. It’s in Douglas county, just south of Eugene.
