I took the pictures below on Rector Street subway station platform. This outrageous poster lasted a week before enraged citizens started to tear it apart (me included). I wonder how MTA justifies giving permission to plaster it on publicly-funded walls in the first place. In my 22 yrs of riding subways I don’t recall any other political poster being given space normally sold to commercial advertisers. I don’t remember American election campaign posters – in 5 election cycles i lived in this city, nor any foreign political organization. This is the first time MTA chose to engage in politics. And look whom they are given their preference.
