BREAKING: ‘Cops as Pigs’ Painting Taken Down Again After Dems Put Back Tuesday Morning

The controversial ‘Cops as Pigs’ painting that has hung in the Capitol complex since June until taken down last week by Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) and re-hung by patron Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-MO) Tuesday morning has been taken down again, according to Fox News reporter Chad Pergram.

Pergram posted a photo of the blank space on the wall of a tunnel connecting the Cannon House Office Building with the Capitol Building where the painting used to hang. Pergram noted that Hunter said he did not remove the

UPDATE: Pergram reports Clay has re-hung the painting:

“Rep Wm Lacy Clay says CO Rep Lamborn removed art a 2nd time & brought it to his office. Clay says he has now rehung painting again”

UPDATE: Rep. Dana Rohrbacher (R-CA) took the painting down with an assist from Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX).

“Rohrabacher says pigs/police painting is an “insult to all police” & USCP officers Gibson/Chestnut killed defending Capitol in July ’98”

“And, it’s back up. Rep Clay rehangs controversial pigs/police art for 3rd time today.”
