Yep. I continue to be amazed that anybody with the Cary town government thinks that this controversy can possibly end well for them.

The best-case scenario — from their perspective — is that they fine the guy until he loses his house (which he’s already said he’s willing to do). They “win,” but meanwhile Cary is revealed to be the totalitarian police state its detractors have long called it.

Worst-case, they lose the First Amendment lawsuit, which would invalidate their sign ordinance and completely undermine whatever point it is they think they’re making.

Either way, I don’t see how any elected official could possibly see this as a good career move.
