Hours after members of the Congressional Black Caucus rehung the controversial painting depicting police officers as pigs that Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Alpine) pulled down Friday, it's been pulled down twice more by Republican House members.
The painting depicts a clash between police and protesters on a street. In it, gun-wielding officers have heads that resemble boars, while one protester appears to be a panther or wolf, and people on the street hold signs that read “History,” “Justice Now” and “Racism Kills.” It was the local winner of a national high school art competition and came from the district of Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.).
Most recently, Reps. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Costa Mesa) and Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) pulled it off the wall. (The audio isn't working on the accompanying clip.)
