Authorities Boot Volunteer Mowing Lincoln Memorial Lawn

Earlier today, an unidentified bearded man took it upon himself to bring his lawnmower and a few tools to the Lincoln Memorial to provide free groundskeeping work to the closed federal monument.

It's unclear how much of the expansive lawn behind the memorial was mowed, but Park Police were alerted and three cruisers with multiple officers showed up.

THE WEEKLY STANDARD watched the officers observing the mystery mower from a distance, as he appeared to be packing it up for the day, carefully placing his blue South Carolina flag in a tube attached to his tool-toting dolly.

    Of course you're not allowed to volunteer to mow a lawn on federal property. All liberals think these jobs must be done by paid, union workers. You're violating the rights of those union members if you volunteer to do their job for free.
