Julia Lease has flown an American flag outside her Ohio residence for the past 36 years, but now she's being told to take down Old Glory.
LEASE: "They want this flag taken down because they says it detracts from the looks of the apartment complex. Well, I can't see how an American flag can detract from anything."
Eighty-six-year-old Lease says she found a notice on her door but kept the flag up regardless. She was told her complex would send a second notice and take it down — something Lease called "stealing." Fox News seemed to agree with her definition.
