Judicial Watch Seeks Permission to Paint on DC Street
From Tom Fitton’s article for NewsMax:
We have formally asked District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser and D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine for permission to paint “Because No One Is Above the Law!” on a Capitol Hill street (Independence Ave, SW between 2nd and 4th Streets SW). Our motto would be the identical size and coloring of the DC Government’s “Black Lives Matter” political message on 16th Street NW.
On June 5, 2020, after days of protests and riots in Washington, DC, Mayor Bowser authorized the painting of “Black Lives Matter” on 16thStreet NW and later allowed “Defund the Police” to be painted alongside it.
Mayor Bowser made a decision to turn D.C. streets into a forum for public expression.
We are seeking equal access to use this new forum to educate Americans by painting our organization’s motto and motivation — “Because No One Is Above the Law!” — on a Capitol Hill street. This message is timely, as it is a reminder that the rule of law applies to — and protects — all Americans. If we are unlawfully denied access and face viewpoint discrimination, we are prepared to go to court to vindicate our First Amendment rights.
