DC PAC Behind ‘Surrender Donald' Message on CSX Bridge Above Beltway

The same bridge was vandalized with "Surrender Dorothy" in years past

The message "Surrender Donald" that popped up on an overpass above the Beltway Friday morning is apparently the work of a D.C. political action committee.

Chopper4 video of the bridge shows the large red letters along the CSX bridge near the Mormon temple in Montgomery County, Maryland. In years past, "Surrender Dorothy" was repeatedly drawn on the bridge in reference to the temple that is reminiscent of the city of Oz.

Claude Taylor, who founded the Mad Dog PAC, took ownership of the graffiti on Twitter Friday, saying, "I love it when a plan comes together. #SURRENDERDONALD"

"I’m guilty. But two other guys figured out how to get it done. And they did. I was at the beach," Taylor said in another tweet.

The Mad Dog PAC posts billboards across the country and sells "Impeachment Now, Anti-NRA and GOP Treason merchandise" in an effort to get Republicans out of the House and Senate, according to the PAC's website.

A spokeswoman for the Maryland State Highway Administration told Bethesda Magazine Friday morning that it would address the bridge’s Trump reference.
