NORTON: "I value the consent of the the governed, and so, there shouldn’t be any charges against these zebras who wanted to get free. There should be any charges here in the District of Columbia, which is seeking consent of the governed with statehood for the District of Columbia. That's all we’re asking for, and we've gotten it passed twice. All of this entire release is a play on words, on statehood and on my most recent work on fences at the Capitol."

NORTON: "Absolutely. (laughter) The zebras helped me do that."
