Michael Wasserman, a New Yorker and Trump supporter is suing the town of Long Beach, NY over their claim his political flags and stickers violate a local ordinance.
“I believe the city is trying to silence me because I’m pro-Trump,” Wasserman told the NY Post.
“They’re bending and massaging the ordinance to fit the crime,” he also said. “This is a blatant attempt to silence me.”
“If they didn’t try to cancel me, I probably wouldn’t be so prolific,” Wasserman told The Post.
He also claimed to be subject to death threats and harassments, saying “[People] spit at me, drive by cursing me out.”
The city claims that Wasserman is in violation of an ordinance stating that “[No] sign shall be erected, affixed or maintained within the perimeter of any … public street or public property.”
Wasserman, who owns a Porsche and Jeep, parks his car on a public street outside his home.
Howard M. Miller the town’s lawyer said “It’s not a political case. It’s not the contents of the message. it’s where he had it — it’s a public street.”
