This Painting Has Congress In A STALEMATE, So The Capitol is Stepping In

The painting by high school senior David Pulphus that has had Congress up in arms will be permanently removed next week.

Representative W. Lacy Clay of St. Louis chose the painting as part of a contest he organized. He then hung the painting on a wall in the hallway between House buildings.

The painting was in headlines last week when several Republican representatives, each on separate occasions, took the painting down.

Via Fox News:

[Architect of the Capitol Stephen] Ayers determined the painting violates the House Building Commission’s rules and will be removed Tuesday after the federal holiday.

Rep. Dave Reichert (R-Wash.), the former Sheriff of King County, Washington, wrote to Ayers demanding the artwork be removed, and arguing the painting “is in clear violation of the Suitability Guidelines outlined in the official rules for the competition.”

In particular, Reichert asserted that the rules bar art that depicts “subjects of contemporary political controversy or a sensationalistic or gruesome nature.”…

Rohrabacher called the painting an “insult to all police.”


Fox News referred to this decision as a “victory for police officers.”

And rightfully so.

The least we could do for the men and women who risk their lives for us every day is promote their well-being in the public sphere. Isn’t that kind of common sense?

Apparently not.
