Pa.’s Lt. Gov. Fetterman continues to display marijuana flag from Capitol office, despite state law

Lt. Gov. John Fetterman displays flag as a show of support for marijuana legalization

Lt. Gov. John Fetterman’s flags apparently aren’t going anywhere.

One of Fetterman’s flags supporting marijuana legalization continues to hang from the railing of the second floor balcony over the building’s front steps. This comes despite a provision slipped into a budget-related bill enacted late last month barring the display of any flag other than the American, Pennsylvania or POW/MIA flags on the exterior of the Pennsylvania Capitol.

Asked about it on Tuesday, Fetterman said he doesn’t care what that law says.

In fact, he said he has added a few more flags to his collection that the public will soon see hanging on his Capitol office balcony railing, once he returns to Harrisburg from his Braddock home in Allegheny County.

Two of his newest banners are vibrant inclusive LGBTQ Pride flags to show his support for extending the state’s anti-discrimination protections to cover matters of sexual orientation and gender identity. He said he plans to display them on the either side of a colorful Marijuana Leaf Weed Rainbow Gay Lesbian Pride flag that are in support of both causes near and dear to him.

Asked if he is concerned about violating the freshly minted law, Fetterman said, “Unless they are going to send the gay flag police after me, I don’t really know what their recourse is going to be.”

He added later that if the Capitol Police Department want to send over their “gay flag division’” of the Capitol Police Department to confiscate them, they can.

The enacted law directs the state Department of General Services, which manages all of the buildings in the Capitol Complex and oversees the Capitol police, to handle the task of policing the flag ban. General Services spokesman Troy Thompson did not have an immediate comment about how the lieutenant governor’s displaying of the flags will be handled.

Fetterman said he has not spoken with Gov. Tom Wolf about the balcony flag display although the governor stands in support of both issues that the flags represent.

Jason Landau Goodman, the founding executive director of the Pennsylvania Youth Congress, the state’s first and only statewide LGBTQ youth advocacy organization, noted that lawmakers adorn their Capitol offices with large signs and flags to express their support of certain causes.

“Why not the Lt. Governor? His office just happens to have a balcony,” Goodman said in an emailed response. “Symbols of support matter to those who face cruel violence and discrimination. Unless a Lt. Governor is using a flag on public property that incites harm, there should be no reason for the Legislature to interfere.”

While Goodman sees nothing wrong with it, Matt Brouillette, founder and president of the conservative-leaning Commonwealth Partners Chamber of Entrepreneurs in Harrisburg, doesn’t like it. From his office window, he said, ”I have to see his stoner flag every day!”

“It’s a disgrace that the Lt. Governor treats the Capitol like his college dorm room,” Brouillette said. “So much so that it required the passage of legislation and Gov. Wolf’s signature to tell him to respect the people’s property.”

Jason Gottesman, spokesman for House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff, R-Centre County, said lawmakers worked with the Wolf administration on the flag ban language which was intended to “develop decorum and uniformity for what is displayed at the Capitol.”

Jenn Kocher, a spokeswoman for the Senate GOP majority, said, “It’s surprising that the lieutenant governor is showing such little respect for Governor Wolf who signed the bill into law. We are disappointed but not surprised. We assume that the Department of General Services will enforce the law.”

Fetterman offered those who don’t like his flag display a solution in a tweet posted on Nov. 20 when the Legislature was voting on the legislation containing the flag ban. The lieutenant governor said he’d take them down when laws were passed legalizing marijuana and extending the state’s anti-discrimination protections to the “LGBTQIA+ community.”

It’s kinda flattering that they changed Pennsylvania law just for me. 🥺👉👈

Speaking of changing laws.

I’ll take them down when we get:
