Rep. Clay Attempts To File Charges Over Removal Of Painting Depicting Cops As Pigs
Daily Caller ^ | January 9, 2017 | Kerry Picket

Posted on 01/10/2017 7:23:10 AM PST by Zakeet

Democratic Missouri Rep. Lacy Clay wants to file a theft charge with Capitol Hill Police against Republican California Rep. Duncan Hunter for removing a painting in the capitol that depicts police officers as pigs.

Clay told reporters Monday night that police spoke to his chief of staff earlier in the day and have not been helpful to the congressman in his quest to file charges against Hunter.

"I think he was way out of bounds and he broke the law. It's called theft," Clay said. "I don't think anyone up here is qualified to be an art critic. I'm not and no other member is an art critic except one—Alma Adams of North Carolina."

[Snip]

A source on the hill familiar with the matter claims that Clay "asked for law enforcement protection to be present when he puts the painting back up at 10 a.m. [Tuesday]."

In my opinion, there is nothing quite so much fun as watching libtards pee their pants ...

Yeah, it’s theft to take it off a wall and take it to Clay’s office. Gotcha.

Let him file charges. Then the police can take it down as evidence and keep it in the evidence shelves of some dark dungeon somewhere.

I hear Clay is a pedophile.

Don’t know if it’s true or not...

Once they put it back, just take it down again. This time, crap on it and say it’s ‘art’.

The Democrat is too stupid to recognize the irony of wanting law enforcement to protect their bullcrap against law enforcement. Is this satire or just a typical St Louis politician being moronic?

Absolutely! Go ahead and file charges in order to call attention to this situation and remind Americans ONCE AGAIN why these anti-American, anti-law enforcement baffoons were opposed in the last election.

I think as a member of Congress the right is given to hang ones choice of art in a certain space.

A Congress member is exempted from arrest while attending a session of the body to which the member belongs, excluding an arrest for treason, breach of the peace, or a felony

Notwithstanding that, Duncan Hunter did not commit any crime - his act was itself "performance art" - something that leftists are usually strongly in favor of.

All of a sudden, to leftist idiots, "performance art" is a crime.

I am surprised that Ryan has not gotten invoved. It is his responsibility to maintain the decorum and dignity of the House.

Now let me get this straight: this dipshit Clay wants the POLICE to arrest Hunter for removing a picture characterizing the POLICE as pigs. Does that sound at all contradictory to anyone else? Only liberals could come up with idiocy of this magnitude.

Ironically, in order to file charges, Representative Clay needs to file his complaint with the very group of self-sacrificing people denegrated in the image of that framed object (can't call that art)?

Adding insult to injury, this disgusting & intentionally disrespectful announcement by the "elected" official (to his everlasting shame) was made the very day officers were killed and injured.
