GOP, Democrats battle in Pa. over voter dress code - Yahoo! News
Annoying as the dress code is, I can kind of understand their point.
Freedom of speech is a very complex thing to pull off in a free society.
Complex like Palin saying she and Mr. Maverick will clean up and regulate Wall Street and then saying she wants to get government off our backs?
I don't see anything wrong with this. Now, if the cable newscasters were banned from chosing sides .... we would all be a lot better off.
Would you want this guy walking up and down the street in front of your Burger King, even if he volunteered to do it - for no pay
I think the pollsters should just confiscate everyones clothes. the shirts off our backs are already being taken by the government, why not the rest?
just when you think the idiots can't get more idiotic...
There seems to be nothing the Repubs won't try to disinfranchise the voters. They've won two elections that way... it's all they know how to do...
I have no doubt this will be ruled unconstitutional...you can't tell people what to wear to the polls.
Here you can't have anything that might be considered to be electoral material within a certain distance of a polling place. It's entirely possible a tee shirt of a political nature could be deemed unlawful if it were worn inside a polling place.
Di, here people can wear what they want to vote, even if it's a McCain/Palin shirt.
My bad. I thought she was "working" as a volunteer at the polling place.
It is illegal to campaign or display campaign material with in a set distance of a place of voting.
Just as I can not carry a sign that says "vote for McCain" with me into the polling place I can NOT wear a t-shirt that says the SAME thing. That is the law.
You can wear anything you want that is legal to a polling place BUT you can NOT take electionering material in with you. THAT includes wearing it on your clothing.
Simple concept really.
