Durham’s proposed prepared-food tax has provoked a pig protest.
Dallas Woodhouse, North Carolina chairman of the anti-tax group Americans for Prosperity, said Friday he will be driving around town Monday with a 25-foot-long pig emblazoned “Stop higher taxes.”
Woodhouse plans to circile the Brightleaf Square area from noon to 1 p.m. and the Durham Bulls Athletic Park from 1 to 2, then cruise Fayetteville Street until 3:30.
Americans for Prosperity send the pig, named "Ten Pence," around the country to oppose tax increases and pork-barrel spending. Ten Pence is shown above during a campaign stop in New Jersey.
