Is justice revealed or covered up?

Former US Attorney General John Ashcroft in front of semi-nude statue "justice"

Ashcroft had to give speeches in front of this statue and didn’t want to be seen with a big boob over his head. So he spent the ridiculous amount of $8,000 in public funds on curtains to drape in front of the statue. He was known as a conservative Christian, so now this gives the media another reason to paint him as an uptight moralizing philistine, i.e., a big boob. The statue is an image of "justice.” Is this reputation of the former civil servant and his career’s legacy justice or not? I wouldn’t know unless I heard him comment on the situation.
