NEW YORK CITY - Senator Lenny Loopinski [D-New York City] has just informed the news media that he has received thousands of emails, text messages, and phone calls from his constituents.
The senator, who is distantly related to Vice-President Biden, stated that he has been asked to help enact a state law that would allow the Statue of Liberty to be painted blue.
He explained that the reasoning behind that movement is that since New York state is a blue (Democratic) state it would be a fitting tribute to the vast majority of New York City and New York state residents.
The senator has said that he will do his very best to get that matter passed through the senate and his hope is that the Statue of Liberty will be painted blue by the July 4th holiday.
SIDENOTE: Senator Loopinski stated that he also received several messages from Republican voters expressing their opposition to having a blue Statue of Liberty but the senator said that he simply ignored them.
