He wasn’t there a half-hour ago, but the controversial stuffed monkey, clad in an Obama Must Go tee shirt, was back on the front lawn of a Cedar Grove business a few days ago, according to this story posted earlier on the website of the Verona-Cedar Grove Times.
You’ll recall the display, deemed racist and offensive by many, was taken down two weeks ago after a public outcry.
But the new report says the moneky was back over this past weekend wearing the same tee, this time (as the V-CG Times photo shows) seated in a lawn chair close to the building. In the new article, the business owner claimed it was put out for trash. Yet, the questions remain: If intended for trash pickup, why was it placed so far from the curb? Why on a non-collection day? Why not put in an opaque bag or a barrel? Why invite back new questions anyway?
