U.S. Representative Dusty Johnson (R-SD) today introduced the Mount Rushmore Protection Act. This legislation prohibits the use of federal funds to alter, change, destroy or remove the likeness, the name of, or any of the faces on the Mount Rushmore National Memorial.
“These presidents championed the cause of freedom. Those seeking to remove these iconic faces are undermining the contributions these leaders made in pursuit of a more perfect union. Removal would do nothing to move our country forward,” said Johnson.
Earlier this week Governor Kristi Noem told “Fox & Friends”, “This is no longer about equality. This is a radical rewriting of our history and in South Dakota we won’t stand for it.”
