This time, it’s not Republican Congressmen who will be taking the painting down, it’s the Architect of the Capitol.
From Fox News:
A painting depicting police officers as pigs that a Missouri representative hung in a Capitol Hill hallway will be removed for good next week, the Architect of the Capitol said.
The 2016 painting by then-high school senior David Pulphus won a contest organized by Rep. W. Lacy Clay (D-St. Louis), and the congressman later affixed the art to a wall in a hallway connecting House office buildings to the Capitol.
Several congressmen, including Reps. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.), Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.), Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) and Brian Babin (R-Texas) have, on separate occasions, removed the painting and returned it to Clay’s office.
This week, Cedric Richmond threatened to “kick somebody’s ass” if the painting was taken down. It looks like he finally knows whose ass he will have to kick.
The painting depicts a police officer as a pig who is shooting an unarmed black man.
