Good News! Tape From Wisconsin Protest Signs Could Cost $7.5 Million In Damages


Apparently, what democracy looks like to all those liberal protesters is destroying public property

State officials said Thursday that damage to the marble inside and out the State Capitol would cost an estimated $7.5 million.

Cari Anne Renlund, chief legal counsel for the state Department of Administration, said in Dane County court that estimates of damage to marble includes $6 million to repair damaged marble inside the Capitol, $1 million for damage outside and $500,000 for costs to supervise the damage.

Much of the damage apparently has come from tape used to put up signs and placards at the Capitol.

Obviously, the answer for this is to raise the taxes on the rich. Resisting the use of damaging tape in order to protect historic property would be just be stupid.
