[Ed. – Doesn’t sound like the city officials have a leg to stand on. They’re giving Mr. Ayyadurai some great free publicity though.]
A self-described “Real Indian,” Shiva Ayyadurai is challenging Warren’s ethnic credentials – and her Senate seat – in the race for the midterms.
Ayyadurai, who was born in Bombay, India, is reminding voters about the Warren controversy by posting a slogan on the side of his campaign bus that reads, “Only a REAL INDIAN Can Defeat the Fake Indian.” The bus is parked in front of an office building owned by Ayyadurai, only a mile from Warren’s home. When officials demanded he take down the signs, he sued, charging they were violating his constitutional free speech rights. …
The city building inspector has threatened $300 in daily fines should Ayyadurai refuse to remove the signs. The candidate, however, said the threat is moot because a bus is not a building.
