Judicial Watch asked District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser and other officials for permission to paint our motto – “Because No One Is Above the Law!” – on a DC street. They of course have played games and have yet to grant us our request. So, we just filed a civil rights lawsuit for First Amendment violations over their refusal. (Judicial Watch. v. Muriel Bowser, et al.(No. 1:20-cv-01789)). Here’s the background. On June 5, 2020, after days of protests and riots in Washington, DC, led by the Black Lives Matter organization, Mayor Bowser authorized the painting of “Black Lives Matter” on 16th Street NW, and later authorized or allowed “Defund the Police” to be painted alongside it.
On June 10, 2020, we sent a letter requesting permission to paint “Because No One is Above the Law!” in the identical size and coloring of the “Black Lives Matter” painting on another DC street near its headquarters near Capitol Hill. We offered to pay for the cost of the painting and, citing the timely nature of the issue, asked for a response in three days.
Instead, after three weeks of emails with the Mayor’s office, we have yet to receive a substantive response to its street painting request. READ MORE https://www.judicialwatch.org/press-releases/sues-dc-paint/
