The move so infuriated District residents that someone has started a “Blacklist Andy Harris” tumblr asking local businesses not to serve Harris:
“My fellow Washingtonians, Rep. Andy Harris doesn’t give a d— about District residents or our rights, so let’s blacklist him! We can generate and distribute signs/stickers/posters with his face, words like “Persona non Grata” (or something similar), and ask local businesses to display them. We could also put up signs with similar messages all around the District.”
Ward said an employee forwarded it along and they decided to post the sign.
“I think it’s more than a business thing, it’s a district self-determination issue,” Ward told the Loop. “In the district we’re not given full autonomy. People come from other states and have no interest in the people in D.C.. It’s about district residents and businesses standing up and saying we want full autonomy.”
Harris’s office did not immediately respond to our inquires about this movement against him … and whether he even rides a bike.
