A town ordinance in Campbell, Iowa, where Luce was protesting, prohibits the use or display of "signs, flags, banners, pennants, streamers, balloons" within 100 feet of an interstate overpass.
Luce and some friends decided to try a different approach to the law by wearing t-shirts that together spelled "IMPEACH" on one side and "OBAMA" on the other while standing on the interstate overpass.
On October 24, 2013, Campbell police threatened Luce with a ticket for this demonstration. Luce filed a federal suit in February, stating that the law violates his rights to free speech and assembly.
The lawsuit rubbed police chief Tim Kelemen the wrong way.
The department also began receiving threats via email from others who were upset with the alleged civil rights violation against Luce.
None of these threats have been linked back to Luce.
In January of this year Luce discovered someone had used his name and email address to register him on pornography and dating websites and on healthcare.gov.
