Washington, DC: City officials authorized a ‘Black Lives Matter’ mural on a street near the White House last month, but denied Judicial Watch the same opportunity to paint a street mural with their message ‘Because No One Is Above the Law’ has spurred a lawsuit by the watchdog group. Judicial Watch says that Mayor Muriel Bowser and other city officials are violating the First Amendment because the street is now a public forum, according to the Mayor’s actions, and his group was denied access. The goal of Judicial Watch is to hold the government accountable to the law. A professor from George Washington University said that it is not a true public space, but the government itself choosing to speak, because the government painted Black Lives Matter on the street, and when the government is speaking, it is not required to allow space for alternative viewpoints. {Someone should ask the professor to explain when the government became a legal citizen with the right to free speech instead of being the servant of the people at large.] -GEG
