Washington, D.C., Sued For More Info on BLM Mural
From Local 12:
WASHINGTON (SBG) — The District of Columbia is facing a lawsuit from the conservative legal group, Judicial Watch, for not providing records about the now-famous Black Lives Matter mural painted on the street outside of the White House.
In an interview Wednesday, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said political messages do not belong on public streets unless everyone is allowed to paint their own messages.
“What we’re asking for are records about the cost about taxpayers painting the messages and communications about how all that took place and certainly the aftermath,” Fitton said.
Judicial Watch has asked for permission to paint his company’s motto outside its office building but has not been granted that permission. He said Freedom of Information Requests have yielded just one out of more than 600 pages of records on the matter.
