D.C. Mayor Sued Over Street Painting Near White House

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser is being sued by a group of activists over her decision two weeks ago to paint “Black Lives Matter” in giant yellow letters on a city street near the White House.

The 51-page complaint, filed in U.S. District Court by street pastor Rich Penkoski, alleges that Bowser violated the First Amendment by showing favoritism to “the Black Lives Matter cult orthodoxy,” The Washington Times first reported.

“The Black Lives Matter banner conveys that black people are the favored race of the city of DC, which is of course a racist contention floated by a racist Democrat who persistently refuses to think logically,” the lawsuit contends.

The suit also states that Bowser’s decision to change a street name to “Black Lives Matter Plaza” was done “to pay respect to [the Black Lives Matter movement] at the taxpayers’ expense.”

Bowser, currently in her second four-year term as mayor, moved forward with the street painting and street name change amid nationwide protests and riots in the wake of the Memorial Day death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
