NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio (D) Admits City Did Not Submit Application To Paint ‘Black Lives Matter’ Murals


His comments come after the city is facing scrutiny for refusing to let other groups to paint similar murals on city streets, with the groups accusing the mayor of depriving them of their First Amendment rights.

He justified the decision to not follow the normal permit process, saying that that message “transcends all normal realities because we are in a moment of history where this had to be said and done.”

“That’s a decision I made,” he said.

“But the normal process continues for anyone who wants to apply.”
