A painting that depicts police officers as pigs is being removed from the Capitol complex next week but where will it head now?
The painting has been the subject of scorn since it was discovered for the lack of respect toward law enforcement that it represents.
Missouri Rep. William Lacy Clay hung the painting in the House building connecting hall and refused to move it despite the public backlash.
Angry over the disrespect, GOP Rep. Duncan Hunter, a Marine veteran, removed it himself last week and gave it back to Clay.
Clay called it an “act of theft” and returned the painting to the wall.
But now the Architect of the Capitol has determined that the painting broke the rules of the art contest and has ordered it be removed. Conservative icon Michelle Malkin has the perfect place for it.

@michellemalkin PERFECT location for it. DEMS have decided ONLY radicals, racists, muslims and illegals belong in their party.
