Editor: I’m the woman the Lovettsville Town Council censured on Oct. 8, and the first thing I want to say is, they had the right to censure me. I appropriated town imagery for a Facebook post telling Nazi punks to F off, and that was against the Town Code. I mean to say, misappropriating town imagery is against Town Code- not telling Nazi punks to F off.
(If I had been in the Town Council’s place, I probably would have called the offender first to have a conversation to rectify the situation instead of going with the highest level reaction I could legally use, but that’s just me. There’s probably a reason I haven’t been elected to town office here; I did misappropriate Town imagery for my personal use after all.)
I suppose I could argue that any reasonable person would have seen that post and assumed it meant that all of Lovettsville was united in telling Nazi punks to F off, but I did misappropriate town imagery, so they were right to censure me.
(I’d happily show you the post so you could decide for yourself, but I have been warned against misappropriating town imagery.)
I take full responsibility for my actions. Going forward I will continue to tell Nazi punks to F off. I just won’t use town imagery to do it.
