Lt. Steven Lewis, spokesman for the Chesterfield police, said this morning that the department "does not allow anyone to stand at that intersection" for safety reasons.John Burns is now employed by American Majority and is leading several efforts for the St. Louis tea party. Don't be surprised if they scream about some manufactured controversy early in the day tomorrow.
Even Boy Scouts are barred, Lewis said, because the intersection is so prone to accidents. "It's not a political statement," Lewis said. "It's about safety."
Burns disagrees, and contended that the police action was tied to the fact that Chesterfield Mayor John Nations is chairman of the chief pro-Prop A group, Advance St. Louis. Nations, alleged Burns, "instructed the police to shut us down. We were not obstructing the view of any motorists. Not at all. What City Hall did was totally wrong."
