'Impeach Cuomo' Sign Violates Village Code, Officials Say
An ice cream parlor in Port Jefferson could face fines of $2,000 a day if it continues to display a banner calling for the impeachment of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Officials say Roger’s Frigate does not have a permit for the “Impeach Cuomo” sign, and that it violates village code.
The manager of the parlor says the banner was put up to protest the governor’s shutdown orders that have hurt small stores and nonessential businesses. He says he refuses to seek a permit because he claims the village objects to his political views.
The ice cream parlor was cited in January for a different sign that read “In Trump We Trust” to show support for President Trump during his impeachment trial.
