Because the MSM never misses a chance to ridicule people of faith. Mr Ashcroft is a great American.
It was Clinton A.G. Janet Reno who covered the statue with a drape. When Ashcroft came in he inquired about it & decided not to buck the establishment (lest the libs criticize him for being a hypocrite Christian or what not) but he couldn't see LEASING / RENTING the cloth that was used to cover the statue so he purchased it for pennies on the $ and the msm made hay of it.
