Souter’s House Targeted
New Hampshire businessman Logan Darrow Clements has filed papers seeking to use the newly-defined eminent domain law to seize Justice David Souter’s house and replace it with a hotel.
The proposed development, called “The Lost Liberty Hotel” will feature the “Just Desserts CafÃƒ©” and include a museum, open to the public, featuring a permanent exhibit on the loss of freedom in America. Instead of a Gideon’s Bible each guest will receive a free copy of Ayn Rand’s novel “Atlas Shrugged.”
Clements indicated that the hotel must be built on this particular piece of land because it is a unique site being the home of someone largely responsible for destroying property rights for all Americans.
“This is not a prank” said Clements, “The Towne of Weare has five people on the Board of Selectmen. If three of them vote to use the power of eminent domain to take this land from Mr. Souter we can begin our hotel development.”
