Finally a statement I can agree with, of course all the leftist are against it even though they had no problems seeing such things said about Bush…. I say Go First Amendment…
Despite calls by Virginia Democrat Rep. Jim Moran on the Metro board to remove the ad, a Metro spokesman, citing case law, said the transit authority could not pull an ad based on its political content.
“WMATA advertising has been ruled by the courts as a public forum protected by the First Amendment of the Constitution, and we may not decline ads based on their political content,” the agency said in a written statement that was provided to The Hill.
“WMATA does not endorse the advertising on our system, and ads do not reflect the position of the authority,” the Metro statement added.
So far, the advertisement is only running in the Washington metro area — and just in the Clarendon Metro station. The ad went up Feb. 13 and will run through March 11.
