Andrea Dick of Roselle Park, NJ, was ordered by a judge to remove three large ‘F*ck Biden’ banners from the outside of her fence facing the street.
The court has now ordered her to face a fine of $250 fine per day that the banners remain up. She is still permitted no have the other banners without the F-word.
Roselle Park Municipal Court Judge Gary Bundy says “This is not a case about politics. It is a case, pure and simple, about language. This ordinance does not restrict political speech. Neither this town or its laws may abridge or eliminate Ms. Dilascio’s freedom of speech. However, freedom of speech is not simply an absolute right. It is clear from state law and statutes that we cannot simply put up the umbrella of the First Amendment and say everything and anything is protected speech.”

Per NJ.com “Roselle Park Mayor Joseph Signorello III, a Democrat who is running for state Senate in Union County, previously said the home is close to a school and angered some residents. But Dick repeatedly said she would not remove the signs since they are political speech protected by the First Amendment.”
