Settlement Could Be Coming In Vermin Supreme's Quest To Protest With Ponies At Clinton Events
Lawyers for a New Hampshire city sued by a performance artist and perennial candidate in the state's presidential primary believe a settlement is imminent on a request by the artist for a permit to bring two ponies to his planned protest of Hillary Clinton's book signing.
Vermin Supreme, who wears a rubber boot on his head, asked a federal judge Friday to compel the city of Concord to issue a permit allowing him to bring the ponies outside Clinton's event on Tuesday. The city had denied the permit.
An attorney for the city filed paperwork Monday saying the parties have met and believe a settlement is near, with no need for a judge to issue an order.
Supreme says Clinton's book, "What Happened," attacks his political platform to provide everyone in the country a pony. The book references a satirical Facebook post about the primary that mentions ponies.
