Nothing like a taxpayer-funded leftist temper tantrum.
Via Daily Caller:
The stimulus-funded Washington, D.C. park taken over by Occupy protesters in late 2011 and early 2012 is finally starting to get back on its feet thanks to a taxpayer-funded re-sodding job by the National Park Service.
“Occupy D.C.’s nearly five-month presence in McPherson Square left the park a brown, sodden mess not long after it received a $400,000 renovation paid for by the 2009 federal stimulus act,” according to dcist.com.
The National Park Service began re-sodding McPherson Square at taxpayer expense in April 2012, reportedly rejecting offers from some of the park’s Occupiers to help with the effort. The re-sodding was expected to cost $7,000.
“The grass is regrown, and a bit shaggy in places, with yellowing splotches in places, though that could be an effect of the winter sun,” dcist.com reports.
