Spotted: DC voting rights posters around the area

Support DC's right to vote!

I spotted this poster the other day on Georgia Avenue. While I'm not a fan of wheatpastes (see the ANSWER Coalition crap) at least it's now legal for this to be up for 180 days.

And DC voting rights an effort that I think we should all support, since as hopefully you know DC doesn't have a vote in Congress, despite a population bigger than Wyoming and Alaska. To me that's completely unfair, as we're taxpayers and are frequently subjected to the whims of Congress, which can decide to block anything the city tries to do, even if the city council approves it or a referendum passes -- like happened with Initiative 59 a few years ago, which approved medical marijuana and with abortion funding.
