Can't they just touch-up the painting?

This incredible piece of political correctness comes from a meeting of the Provincetown, Mass., Governing Board.
In that meeting, Selectwoman Sarah Peake "raised a formal objection to the continued presence of the historical painting that graces the board’s meeting room."

That particular painting, of Pilgrims voting on the Mayflower Compact, has in the past received no comment in that regard, stirred no controversy because of subject matter, artist, even the quality of the work.

So why is Ms. Peake piqued?

There are no women in the painting.
