Several years ago, Google Earth captured a Madison, Wisconsin, woman giving the a big middle finger to the state’s governor’s mansion. Today, she’s become an internet hero.
The lakeside compound where the photos were snapped is home to controversial politician (and failed Republican presidential candidate) Scott Walker. The woman, who Mashable has identified as Ruth Smith, told us she actually made the gesture in June 2011 — right as Walker was facing a contentious recall vote. Though, her sentiment is as relevant for angry progressives today as it was then.
