The fact is that Lamar rejects advocate business from both sides of the aisle. BNET readers know that Lamar took down billboards of a group criticizing America's funding of Israel and refused to sell space to a group that believes President Obama was not born in America. It also went along meekly with a Canadian city that forbids religious advetrising on buses.
Given the dire situation Lamar's finances are in, perhaps this company might want to grow a pair and allow people to pay them money to advertise the occasional message with which Lamar's shaky-faithed general managers disagree.
