A supporter of former President Donald Trump is refusing to take down indicators at her mom’s residence essential of President Biden, regardless of a choose’s order to take action.
“It’s my First Amendment right, and I’m going to stick with that,” Andrea Dick, a New Jersey Trump supporter, told the New York Times on Tuesday.
Dick, 54, was instantly criticized by a few of her neighbors when she put up the indicators earlier this 12 months and was in the end cited and fined by native officers, who mentioned the indicators have been violating an anti-obscenity ordinance. Last week, Roselle Park Municipal Court Judge Gary A. Bundy ordered Dick’s mom to take away three of the ten banners or be fined $250 every day.
Dick says she won’t obey that order.
“I’m not backing down,” Dick mentioned, including that she is at the moment looking for a brand new legal professional to characterize her.
The indicators, a few of which comprise vulgar language and center fingers, have been deemed offensive by Roselle Park mayor Joseph Signorello III.
Signorello says he obtained complaints and that the city’s choice to punish Dick was not about “politics in any way,” and that he would have a problem with comparable indicators that have been essential of Trump.
“It’s about decency,” Signorello mentioned.
A GoFundMe account, which Dick has posted on her Facebook web page, has been set as much as increase cash for her authorized protection fund.
“Andrea is fighting a costly battle to preserve her Freedom of Speech rights, as well as yours,” the web page says.
