Anti-Obama Sign Fort Myers

March 3, 2012 by staff 

Anti-Obama Sign Fort Myers, An anti-Obama Care ad at a Virginia Metro station has drawn the ire of a Congressman. Rep. Jim Moran wrote Metro a letter asking the transit agency to remove an ad attacking the health reform law and telling President Barack Obama to “Go to hell.”

The ad is for a movie called “Sick & Sicker.”

“This advertisement is inappropriate, disrespectful of the president and should be removed immediately,” Moran said. “The families with children and thousands of tourists who take Metro everyday should not be subjected to such garbage. I understand WMATA vets these advertisements before allowing them to go up, but it seems someone wasn’t doing their job when this ad was approved.”

The ad is protected by the Constitution, Metro said in a statement Wednesday afternoon.

“WMATA advertising has been ruled by the courts as a public forum protected by the First Amendment of the Constitution, and we may not decline ads based on their political content. WMATA does not endorse the advertising on our system, and ads do not reflect the position of the Authority.”

In his letter to Metro GM and CEO Richard Sarles, Moran says he accepts political ads should be allowed in the Metro system but says this ad shouldn’t be acceptable under “minimum standards of decency.”

The ad that caught Moran’s attention is at the end of a Clarendon Metro Station platform in Arlington.
