Virginia Wrongly Approves Voting Day DRESS CODE

This is bullsheeet! Where does Virginia get off at in establishing a Election Day DRESS CODE in a feeble attempt to save the John McCain Campaign in that state? The GOOD NEWS FOLKS is in the FINE PRINT. You cannot wear buttons, shirts, or hats that promote the election of or defeat of any specific candidate! The ruling is mute on SUPPORTING A PARTICULAR PARTY if you get my drift! Additionally, the ruling is MUTE on wearing socks or shoes that advocate the election of any particular candidate! HEY CONVERSE, how fast can you make up some OBAMA SNEAKERS? HELP IS ON THE WAY!

The State Board of Elections on Tuesday voted to ban clothing and hats as well as buttons and other paraphernalia that directly advocate the election or defeat of a specific candidate or issue.

The American Civil Liberties Union argued that the ban violates the First Amendment's right to free speech. The board, however, said it has to weigh that against the right to vote free of undue influence or the tension that candidate advocacy might create.

Efforts to enforce a similar ban are headed to court in Pennsylvania. At least four states — Maine, Montana, Vermont and Kansas — prohibit wearing campaign buttons, stickers and badges inside polling places.
