So, a guy owns a fishing shop in Florida. On the side of his building, he has an artist paint a mural of fish. The city says the mural is a sign advertising his business and that, since he didn’t get a permit for it, he’s in violation of the law. The guy says it’s art, not a sign and he doesn’t need a permit for art. The city levies a daily fine.
This is the part I like. Pissed at the city but not wanting to pay the daily fine, the guy covers the mural–with a banner that has the First Amendment on it.
Balls in your court, City of Clearwater. Go ahead, say that the First Amendment is illegal. This’ll be great to watch.
