Key West enjoys a reputation as one of the most liberal, accepting places in the nation, where city leaders legalized same-sex domestic partnerships 30 years ago and where the police chief is openly gay.
But the island where freak flags fly so freely hasn't been able to stay out of the national slug fest surrounding the presidential campaign's presumptive GOP nominee.
This week, a Donald Trump campaign sign, hand-painted on the concrete wall that surrounds a New Town home, was defaced by a man who used purple spray paint to leave a swastika and the words "racists" and "Nazi," according to police.
"I felt like I'd been robbed," said Ann Warren, who had twin 4-foot-by-8-foot Trump signs painted on her Fogarty Avenue home's outside wall earlier this year. "When I went outside, the paint was still sticky."
The 66-year-old wants to pursue criminal charges and was told by the original painter it would cost $700 per sign to clean, repair and repaint.
"This is a freedom-of-speech issue," said Warren, who earlier this month filed her first police report over the Trump sign after scrubbing dried egg off it. High school kids have egged the wall five or six times, she said.
But Tuesday night's vandalism wasn't kid stuff, and while some locals took to Facebook to snicker at reports of the vandalism, those close to Warren -- regardless of political opinion -- reached out to her with comfort and help.
Within hours, the Trump paint job was recovered and patched up by friends.
Someone used a coat of white paint to cover the "Nazi" and "racists" painted on the white wall next to the stars and stripes of the Trump mural.
Warren said she was watching the primary results Tuesday night when police showed up at her home. Someone had reported seeing a vandal spray-painting the sign and called them.
Key West has at least three of these Trump paint jobs on locals' concrete walls, including a plywood sign hanging on Harris Avenue and a double-painted Trump on Northside Drive, all done by local Trump supporter Greg Barnes.
Warren knocked on the Northside Drive door to find out how she could track down the artist. Barnes spent a week painting Warren's walls all Trump, doing the stars by hand. No stencils, Warren said.
Police had no suspects Friday but a witness described the vandal as "a Hispanic wearing a white hat with black hair and a beard," the incident report states.
He left the area on a black bicycle that had a bell.
"This is not a Conch, this is not a Bubba," Warren said. "My friends and my neighbors and other people, we do live and let live. I don't care if you support Bernie or Hillary. I have friends that do."
That diehard Clinton fan, Warren said, vowed that if the sign is ever marred again, she will drop everything and help scrub it off.
"She said, 'I admire you,' " Warren said. "That's Key West."
